For those of you who know me, when I walk into a room and see a child, I forget all about the adult conversation and I am for the moment the child's best friend. I haven't found what draws me in each time, maybe their innocence, pure kindness, or that they would never judge a soul. My favorite qualities are their sense of adventure and quickness to forgive. I have opened my heart to every child and found, if only for a brief moment, the person that I want to be.
A close friend of mine recently had a sweet little boy. I was ecstatic when she asked me to take a few snapshots of him. However, I was more nervous than I have ever been to take a picture. You see, I love newborn photography. Through all the photographers efforts and edits they eventually find the perfection to each newborn. The big, beautiful, bright eyes that captivate you; the soft, porcelain skin that you can't stop kissing; all of the intricate details right down to the tiny toes. How was I ever going to capture that?
