You know the song- the one by Colbie Caillat? Its one of the songs my daughter has taught herself to play and sing, which I love. I love it because I love seeing her grow through music and the message of the song is a balm to girls of every age. It it my firm belief that everyone should have a picture of themself that they love. That picture may or may not come via my help, but it’s a goal every time I shoot. After once hearing a little girl say she hadn’t really thought of herself as pretty, I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. How can we show each other and the little ones watching us how pretty they are? What it is that makes them so pretty? The simplest answer comes from another well-known phrase from the oft-quoted Audrey Hepburn – “Happy girls are the prettiest . ..” And I believe it! I hope you do, too!
For this set of shots I was going for a clean, simple fashion feel. I wanted the shots to really focus on each subject. Not too busy, no distractions, just bright eyes and sweet faces.
So, how lucky am I that I got to spend 45 minutes with some of the very happiest people around??
