This is my niece. She was my first niece. My first obsession. My first photographic muse. She just turned 8 and we had a photoshoot to celebrate….
While editing through her 8yr old photoshoot, it started me thinking…I have been taking photos of her for 8 years! For 8 years! I don’t know why that seems like the longest time range, but it does. I think I had my first paying photography job 12 years ago, and I am pretty confident Faith is one of my oldest clients. For some reason she keeps coming back…or….I keep obsessing.
I love her more than everything and anything. She and my other nieces and nephews are what make me nervous to start trying to have my own babies. How could I love others more? How could they be as beautiful…as enchanting? I keep asking and I grow timid at the thoughts of my own attempts to create such beauty. They are masterpieces…and I am just blessed enough to capture a little of their spirit through my camera.
Enjoy a photographic journey of Faith over the last 8years…
