This super sweet and playful water photo series shows us the innocence and excitement of children and their interactions with the vast ocean.

Using a mix of shots, from direct to underwater, California-based photographer Kristianne Koch captures her kids playing and exploring the sea in her water photo series 'Rite of Water.'

The kids seem to be unafraid of the tide and crashing waves as they carelessly frolic in the sun, unhindered by the moody ocean under their mothers' watchful eyes. The series is shot at San Clemente and Dana Point and beautifully captures her kids taking on the ravenous sea in her creative series that is compromised of 17 diptychs.

The photographer tries to portray how kids and adults take on life -- using the waves and wild surf in this case.
