What a special memory these cute cousins will have to look back on from this mermaid session. They don't see each other often enough during the year but every summer they gather at South Padre Island for fun in the sun, sand and beach. This is usually when all of the families are able to get together, and for the cousins, it's like they haven't missed a beat. They just have so much fun together bonding. All of them are at that magical time in their lives where dreams are big and make-believe is real. So what better time than now to photograph their biggest dreams,....becoming a mermaid.
What is even more special is that all of these crowns are hand made. Two of the crowns are made from their grandmother's shells that were collected at South Padre Island.
Sassy mermaids! This was an outtake of them just sitting around before I started posing them.
Kids just being kids,.....run, play, swim, get all sandy, run in the ocean,....REPEAT!
