Forever Young | Pismo Beach, CA

December 05, 2012
 
Meet Bethany.  If you've been to this blog, you've seen her before...  Her eyes are the ones at the top of our Blog homepage.  For those that don't know, Bethany is turning 2 in a few days.  Her parents are pulling out all the stops and planning a huge party.  Why not? You only turn 2 once, right?  My sister asked if I could take a few pictures of her and made the drive from Southern California to SLO county.  At first I was unsure of where to schedule the photoshoot.  Do we go to the waterfalls? Do we look for a rural backdrop?  A winery?  I think we settled on the perfect location: Pismo Beach.  
 
I didn't realize it at the time, but this was Bethany's first time on a beach.  Her reaction was priceless.  When she put her feet in the sand, she froze.  She'd never seen sand before let alone stood in it.  We all smiled and that's when it happened.  Her grandfather scooped her up and marched to the water's edge.  His doctor had told him not to pick up anything heavier than 20 lbs.  He wasn't going to be stopped.  He was taking his grandbaby to the ocean.  It was a moment I was grateful to see.
  
"May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young" -Forever Young, Bob Dylan
