Photographer Connie McDonald shot Lily Van Buskirk in this outdoorsy editorial for C-Heads.

McDonald and Van Buskirk go way back, and their familiarity and connection is evident in the images. McDonald explains, "I used to babysit Lily. We hang out a lot nowadays in our favorite little town [of] Wanaka, New Zealand. In [the] summer we are sun-drenched and our freckles come up. We took these photos on lazy, warm days."

It's clear that Van Buskirk is having fun in the company of her once-chaperone. Now that she's all grown-up, the two can unleash their creative sides together. The result is this incredibly fun editorial. You can almost feel the breeze through your hair and the sand between your toes as you browse the images.
