Coastal childhood

Leave a comment

The idea for this project came from an image of my daughter, staring straight down the camera, bright blue sky and pale green hat framing her sandy face, hair drifting sideways in the sea breeze. It reminded me of my own childhood, days spent at the beach with my family on holidays. Busy mornings swimming and playing, and late afternoon walks before dinner. The smell of sunscreen, the tautness of salty skin, the pleasant warmth of a sunburn, the exhaustion from a day in the surf. This series is an attempt to capture the feeling of those moments; a coastal childhood.

I live and work in Newcastle, Australia - a gorgeous little coastal town in NSW. Kids, dogs, love, work, trees, the beach and my camera keep me happy. All blog content and photography is copyright Louise Faulkner Photography, but am happy to share with those seeking permission.
