I’m pretty sure we’d all love to be Erzsibet right now, the bright blue sky and crystal clear turquoise water of Trigg Beach in Perth, Western Australia is certainly calling to me! I love the simplicity of this shoot, capturing this gorgeous little girl as she gets another year older, and photographer Liesl Cheney has caught her sweet little personality just perfectly!
From Mum Lene –
What does being a mum mean to you? It is the single most significant event in my life. I was instantly in love when I laid my eyes on her. To have the privilege of helping a person ‘become’ has been at times challenging, but every second of it is worth it. She surprises me every day with her witty attitude and sparkling personality. She has grown into a beautiful little girl who is sincere and loves helping others and that makes me very proud. I have been asking her what she wants to become when she is grown up every year. First we started off with the usual choices, a princess, and then a year later a ballerina. After that it was a doctor and a chef, but this year has truly been the most unexpected answer of them all. When I asked her what she wants to be, she just answered: “a helper”. When I asked her to elaborate a bit more, maybe a nurse or teacher, she just answered me flatly: “no, just a helper. I just want to help people”. I am truly honoured and privileged to call Erzsibet my daughter.
