My Little Swimmer // Seattle Film Photographer

“Under the sea! Under the sea!
Darling, it’s better
down where it’s wetter,
Take it from me!”

-Sebastian of Little Mermaid

This is my daughter, Madeline.

She started swimming under water about a month after she started walking … she is almost always smiling when she comes up for air, which means to me that she was smiling underwater … her one goal in life is to be an Olympic swimmer … we used to have this joke in our family that Madeline could see a bottle cap full of water and she’d want to jump in it … and even though she’s almost thirteen, she still says that if there was one unreasonable wish that she could be granted in the whole world, it would be that mermaids really are real, and that she is, in fact, a mermaid.
