Fugi X100 | Teen Portraits at the Beach
I’ve only have a good solid 5 more years with her until she goes off to college…how did that even happen!? My 13 year old, born at just over 1 pound and almost 3 months early has grown into a beautiful young woman that I am happy to claim! (this says a lot, because I have lots of family members I do not claim!) HAHA! I’m proud of who she is becoming and watching her navigate the “teen” years has made me admire her even more.
The last few years she’s ran from my camera. Anytime she’s seen it come out, she would make up every excuse on why we couldn’t take photos so when she asked me at the beach to snap a few of her, I jumped at the chance. I only brought my Fugi X100 with me and thought it was a great chance to test it out since I had had it for several months and hadn’t really used it yet. I bought it for the purpose of using it for travel because it’s so much lighter and let’s face it…it’s cute! I plan to take this with us on our mother/daughter trip this summer. Destination unknown as of now.
We put Greg on “Levi duty” and we went off just her and I and walked around our resort in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic looking for “good light”. Did I mention, she’s interested in learning how to take pictures so I was able to give her a few little lessons on how to find good light. We’ve done this every year since she’s started traveling with us. I have huge canvases on my wall of her at each international beach we’ve gone to so I needed one to add to our collection.
Super light and it fits in my “fanny pack”! HAHAHAHA!
I shall call this: Rompers on the beach! HAHA!
We really only had about 20 minutes to take these before we had to be at our dinner reservations…..we made that shit happen!
Palm trees and teenagers! <3
She’s my converse gal….just like her mama!
That light though!
Edited to add: Many of you were asking about the camera…here is the link to the one I have.
