In amongst the chaos of everyday living and the obtuse situations my family has been in recently, this morning was non-negotiable.

Kids, let mum sleep, we are going to the beach.

I think I am starting the ascent for most difficult time in my life to shoot surfing photos. I have a 11 month old that doesn’t want to be strapped in and a almost three year old who wants to be anywhere else than where I can choose to shoot photos.

And this is what I am very fortunate enough to work with. Two amazing boys, eager to explore the world. I wouldn’t want it any other way.

It would just be nice if I could shoot a couple of waves without either child grabbing the monopod and slamming the camera body into my eye socket. I know. It is a lot to ask. lol.
