happy friday | 5.6.11

i tend to fall in love with families that i photograph.
it's an occupational hazard i suppose.

and i hope that they fall in love with what i've captured.
that it reflects back to them
the goodness and beauty they hold.

but this one below
got to me in a unique way.

i had been thinking about photos i would want to have
of my own childhood.
and i saw this one.

and i choked up.
it's the thrill of being chased
by one who loves you deeply.

it's wanting to be caught.
to be held.
to laugh and laugh and laugh.

it's a moment of joy.

(may we have eyes to see.)
happy friday!!
xo.
