As cliché as it sounds, as a photographer you spend your days chasing after the perfect image. Soliciting a smile, sometimes even demanding one of your own child. Sometimes they give one, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes you plead, bargain or cajole.
And sometimes you see a moment, come in quietly, start snapping, and capture something unique, real, and lovely.
It’s an edit unlike most that I do, but I love it. And these two, well, I love them dearly. Smiling or not, they are perfect.
