Casey at Carlin Beach During Sunset

May 13, 2011 | Portraits & People

I took my niece out to Carlin Park yesterday for sunset. I’m not much of a people photographer but I do enjoy shooting moments in time. My niece is very outdoorsy and every time I take her to the beach she runs wild towards the sand. Kinda reminds me of my dog when I let him outside ;-)
