I’ve wanted to do something like this for years, but held out until now: what do I have to lose? I knew it may not turn out perfectly, that it wouldn’t be a true mirror image (only a reflection), but I just wanted to capture a feeling. Once again, I asked my husband if he could please-pretty-please take a photo that I set up, then I walked to the water’s edge repetitively yelling over the thunderous roar of the waves, asking if he could see my entire reflection. In the end, I was soaked to the skin, sitting in the water while the waves threatened to wash completely over me. There was loads of laughter and simple fun in capturing this photo and my man was so patient and willing to take direction.
And this is where the umbrella ended up post-photo shoot as a gust of wind blew it into the pool. I was given one more chance to capture a mirror image.
