Pemaquid Beach Princess

This year Labor Day was all about families with children, but this was the only session with a little girl.  Not just any little girl, mind you.  To me she is a princess and in this case, a Pemaquid Beach Princess!  As with many two-year-old children, she wanted nothing to do with me and my camera.  In fact, mom and dad were the only two people allowed in her world.  I thought, well, okay, I'll just be a fly on the wall . . . or sand!  It took roughly an hour before running in the water and throwing seaweed was far more enticing than trying to avoid me.

The beach is her happy place, which I was fortunate to be a part of last year.  I think it's amazing how one year can make such a difference in a child's life.  This little miss has grown into a phase of wanting independence but with an eye on mom and dad.

It might be hard to tell, but the four photos above were taken during the time she was upset.  I think it's important to remember all the phases of your children's life - the smiles and the tears.

She spent the majority of the time running towards the water with a handful of seaweed to toss into the waves.  Can we adults learn to enjoy such simplicity in the way a child does?

If this is not a happy child, I don't know what is!  Ah, to be little again!

It wasn't easy to wrangle her in to stand still for a few seconds in order to get a family photo, but we managed!  I have a few more, which you'll see once I finish editing the rest.  Hope you enjoyed your preview!
