Wonderful way she is facing the light and it warms her skin tones brilliantly!! I really like the look of the sand as the textures appear with such great detail. The colors are VIVID and with a such great excellent appearance, love the pink skirt, yellow bucket and the white shirt...brings in the the white from small crashing waves* What I LOVE most of your style of photography is I see so much in such a simple portrait!!! Great capture!!!
