Last week I spent a little time in my archives. This is something I always long to do, but do not have the time to do. It is important to me though, whether it is a personal project, taking some shots of my life and kids or photographing a paid client, to reflect is always different from when I shot it.
I ran across this and it made me smile. This project was a pro-bono job for the school my kids attend. The one with lighter skin is my youngest and as you can see, these are smiles that he gets to see everyday, It might just be the one thing that he looks forward to seeing are these friends.
I could not help myself to reflect on this and acknowledge something, no matter our skin tone, that all we really want is to love and be loved. A child does this well and I must learn much from them.
