Nora's portraits are never what I plan or expect. She does her own thing, and her own thing is always so much more her than I could ever have staged. She is joyful, bounding, brave and mischievous. I love her salty, wind-whipped hair, which is now surfer-girl blond after the summer, and can practically hear her singing Frozen songs as she dances across the sand in these images. But mostly they remind me of how she and her sister made Grandma laugh for some of the last times in her life during this trip.
