Marco passed over the course of the year, and when Dewey came around they wanted Berry and Ziva photographed. For whatever reason Berry was harder for me than Ziva. I just couldn't seem to get an angle that I liked for Berry. More of a problem about me than about Berry, really. But here are a couple that I was okay with:
Ziva was much easier for me. I suppose being younger and more energetic worked in my favor. She would go zip! to the right of my viewfinder, then turn around and go zip! in the opposite direction:
But she would pause long enough for me to get a head shot or two:
Ziva's furry neck reminds me very much of Nik's, as does her color.
Surprisingly there were few people out on the beach that Sunday morning. But that completely changed before my final session that afternoon.
