Miss J Brown | Portraits

To be five years old again...

To live in the magic of childhood...

To see everything through her eyes...

To search tirelessly for a four-leaf clover...

To chase fireflies...

To believe everything is possible...

I love this sweet, little girl.  She is so full of energy and curiosity.  In the past year, she has grown and matured so much.  She had my little boy's attention as I made her portraits a few weeks ago.  As we would walk from one spot to another, they would hold hands and talk about the dog or the cat or superheroes or whatever came to their imaginative minds.

Her mom is a treasure to me, personally.  Our connection as friends began through her work as a nurse and our common interests and challenges as moms.  Now that I know her as a friend, I'm so thankful to know there are professionals in her field with such a loving and giving heart.

Portraits of children are so much fun.  I always make a plan and lead them and am patient and make it fun and take silly-time breaks.  But there is always a large level of unpredictability - which makes for the best surprises.  The image above was taken toward the end of our session, and I was suspecting that she was about to thank me for my time and services and dismiss me.  One last glance my way, though, and click!

Fall is at its most beautiful right now.  Go see the glowing colors around you, they will blow away in just a few days.  I have my plans made for finding some amazing foliage this weekend, do you?
