I Heart Faces- “We Are Family”

Beach Walk

I had a fun opportunity to photograph a really cool family from Zimbabwe.  They are out here on “holiday” and had never had family pictures taken before.  The dad is hilarious and his personality is exactly like the Crocodile Hunter.  He even showed me a picture where he is wrestling a live 14 foot, 100 pound python!  He saved it from eating the family cat.  

I told the C. family that if they’d be my guinea pigs and let me practice my photo skills on them, they could keep the pictures.  I love that we were able to arrive at the beach at sunset.  It was a gorgeous night.
