My strong, funny, smart, kind-hearted, beautiful niece Abbey, let me photograph her on the beach in Byron Bay a few weeks ago.
These images were completely spontaneous – she was dancing along the shore, and I had my camera with me – a serendipitous opportunity too perfect to ignore! So while the rest of the kids played Ultimate Ocean Frisbee (ahhhh boys!!) we got down to business and she poured all of the energy and focus it takes to be such a talented ballerina into being my dedicated subject. What a professional. She must get it from her Mama* ;)
The camera clearly loves her. As do I. And, in honour of her birthday next week I just had to share these images with you too. Happy Birthday Abbey! XOXO

Beach Ballet Byron-style. Will you join me in wishing Abbey a happy birthday? I’m sure she’d love that!
