I love introducing people to my passions. Whether it be photography, hiking, climbing, smoothies, yoga or just a cool song, I find happiness in watching their expressions and listening to their words as they enter a world previously unexplored.
This was such a case this past weekend when I suggest going on a hike for this little gal’s 4th birthday photos. The wonderment in her eyes and giggles. She was in her element. She collected rocks, explored snake holes, felt the moss on her feet for the first time…and I was there to document it. This photo session was taking a different turn than what I or her mom had envisioned, but we rolled with it. As soon as her shoes came off, she was in love with the feel of dirt and water between her toes.
Maybe she will remember this experience and let it guide her to the woods again.
