I have to admit, I envisioned this beach photo session in Corolla, NC, with the docile, I-behave-like-this-only-when-I'm-shy version of my girls. They would be sitting together, offering up huge smiles as the sun set over the dunes. Yeah, right. I didn't get a single shot of them sitting together with both looking at the camera.
But what I did capture was much more exciting and natural: two sisters finding a deserted sandcastle, playing and jumping and tackling each other. These photos are exactly how I want to remember them—perfect in the way only two wild, curious and sweet (and disobedient) toddlers could be.
