In Her Own World
There is something so magical about watching kids just ‘be’ – free from restraints or rules, they’re just themselves – in their own little worlds with no concern whether they look silly or have mismatched clothes. One of my favorite sessions is to just let toddlers and young children be themselves – no direction, no coaching, no ‘say cheese!’ Marlene was a dream to photograph. Not only is she (and her clothes) cute as can be, but she’s at an age where she freely uses expression and body language to convey a wide variety of moods in a matter of minutes. It’s these candid moments that give us the priceless memories and visual legacy that will be cherished for generations.
