I love watching children being themselves. They are free and unencumbered by society. They have an innocence and a spirit that most of us have forgotten. It is this essence of childhood that I long to capture on film. Photographing children gives me that opportunity and the chance to show to the rest of us our own inner beauty and just maybe a glimpse of that sense of wonder so prevalent in childhood. That pout, that smile, that joy, that energy, that sparkle will be gone in the blink of an eye. Let's capture those precious moments before they become a fleeting memory. I love catching that giggle, thoughtful look, and every other expression. Besides, I just might be goofy enough to make them laugh!
