Sophie on a Paddle Board

My 8 year old daughter paddle boarding for the first time in Newport Beach, CA. I took this image because my daughter, who had been suffering from anxiety, had this perfectly serene, fearless and confident moment on the water and in this moment everything became possible for her again after a difficult season.
