Ninety Mile Beach or Te Oneroa A Tohe looking south to Shipwreck Bay and the sand dunes we used to climb as kids with my grandmother. It's nice to be back in my childhood playground with my kids, and show them their turangawaewae (tribal standing ground).
The only way I'm ever in a shot is if I take it myself. The downfall of being the photographer in the family. My cute baby in the background. I have three sons. I am a happy mama.
My youngest at sunset. I made his crochet hat when it was confirmed we were coming home. I knew I wanted a photo of a sunshine-y hat on this wee son of mine on this vast beach. We got here late but we still did a quick trip down the beach at sunset.
My second son is so independent. He amazes me with his energy and can do approach to everything. He's a bit of a chip of the old block ... that would be me of course.
