I met this family for the first time in 2015. They are visiting South Africa from the USA every few years for a few weeks and love to capture the time they spend here.
It was so great to see them again, and I saw them a few more times after this day, because Mistie also wanted to take photos between the fynbos and Overberg mountains of her and Finn.
I just love the aliveness in each photo and Finn’s beautiful red hair. There was almost now directing at this shoot, because Finn just kept on running around and throwing rocks in sea.
The sea was quite stormy because of a storm a few days earlier, so during one of the running around and playing activities we didn’t see the waves coming in and it rolled Finn completely under the water. Needless to say the shoot was kind of over after that, but I captured a few of him after the this incident and they’re my favourite ones…
