Though I have never marketed myself as a child portrait photographer, I have photographed many children throughout the years. Most of the children have belonged to friends and/or family members. And though my own childhood days have long since passed, I can still remember the amazement and curiosity I held for the world around me and all of the new experiences that came into my life. In many ways I still feel this way especially when encountering the joys of natures creatures and the discovery of a new place. Anyway, it gives me great joy to view the world through the lens of a child. Below are photos of a dear friend’s daughter that were taken awhile back. The images epitomize the long, lazy days of summer fun when you are a child. Sometimes I wish I could step back in time to those days…if only for just a day.
