There's something about this family. When I photograph these beautiful children, the feeling I get comes very close to what I feel when I photograph my own child; every moment is special and perfect in it's own way. I think this is because I am photographing little artists in the making. They are so loved and nurtured that they can freely be themselves.
In the photo below, Em is pushing her boundaries just a little. Normally, as a portrait photographer I would put the camera down, but I felt not was important to capture this moment. I love this chess series very much.A quiet mind.We went into Em's room and she was a bit unhappy… for a split second all of her emotions and the light rolled into one. As she sorts out her feelings, she's still very beautiful. Such an inherent sweetness.She wanted to be photographed in her halloween costume and then again in full makeup.
