Emily's mum and I have been friends since we met online in a mother's group over 12 years ago. Lee was pregnant with Emily at the time! They live in Jindabyne and were visiting Adelaide for a family reunion, so we took the opportunity to photograph their family at long last. 

When we arrived at the beach it was a quiet, silvery night, with those beautiful rays of light beaming down like a big spotlight. I asked Emily to run along the beach and jump just in the right spot to make it look like she was leaping over the light. Being a champion skiier she did it perfectly! It says everything about Emily and her go-getter nature. She'll do more than ski mountains, she'll conquer them.
