Why, oh why do I agree to these things?
They live just a stone’s throw from the beach and so that was the logical place to do it. They had also seen the pictures from Ella and Gareth’s beach shoot and so I knew before I asked exactly when they would want to do it.
About two hours before sensible people get up.
Which meant another early morning. Fortunately by what I like to call genius planning (OK, luck) it’s just a few days before the clocks go back. Which made dawn a pretty reasonable 7:28.
It was still pretty early though. And fairly cold. And also slightly wet. One day I’ll learn to read tide tables properly. Let’s just say there was more water on the beach than I anticipated. And a lot of it found its way into Anthony’s shoes.
But we all had a great time and Louise and Anthony seemed quite happy as they went home for breakfast. I was pretty happy too. I’d already seen the pictures.
Why do I agree to these things? Because it lets me create images like this.
Which makes getting out of bed early a pretty small price to pay.
More pictures “soon”…..
