I'm not sure that words can ever adequately express how much I love photography. It's not the physical action of figuring out how best to position myself or my camera, it's not interacting with children or adults while I take photos, while I love both of those aspects of the job, it's capturing the little spirit within each person that I like the best.
On this particular photo shoot with three amazingly beautiful girls, one thing that stands out most in my mind is the following. One of the little girls asked if she thought that my son (her friend) would think the outfit she was wearing was beautiful. I answered, "Why yes, of course, he would think it was beautiful." And that was the end of the conversation. But later, as I sat back and thought about what she said, I wish I had given her a different answer. I wish I had said something like, "The outfit doesn't make you beautiful, you are beautiful because of who you are inside." These girls, and this family, are not only beautiful on the outside, but the are gorgeous on the inside too! They are fun, thoughtful, and kind and have been an absolute joy to get to know. I am honored to have taken their photos!
Here are some of their photos...
The girls together!
Enjoy your slide show guys!! :)
