This image was taken in the summer of 2016, at Port Maitland Provincial Beach, in Nova Scotia, Canada. 2016 has been a year of subtle change for my daughter who is quickly growing into a strong young woman. I’ve taken measures to record her fleeting childhood whenever possible, since I can see it slip further away every second.
Leaping over the wave, I saw a bright flash of my little girl. This bittersweet time in a parent’s life is impossible to relate without experiencing it firsthand.
