I’ll always live in a place where childhood is magical. Where these moments are so precious and so fleeting that I just melt watching them play. I can’t help but notice the way parents react to the way I interact with their children. I suppose they are always surprised at the immediate connection I have with them, even the stinkers, the fussy ones. I love them all. I am the oldest of 6 children and 16 grandchildren, and I have 3 young daughters, being in their world just comes naturally to me, and I love it.
I’ve been photographing Harper since she was just 6 months old, and look what a doll she’s blossomed into.
Such a simple game of peek a boo that turned into some beautiful smiles. I aim to capture the real interactions that are already there. I can always tell the difference between a cheese, and a belly laugh! Belly Laughs are the BEST!
