Capturing Smiles

grandma's donkey

My lovely sixteen year old daughter, Emily, has such an amazing eye for photography.  I, being a victim and perpetrator of many hundreds of straight on, smile in the camera, generic shots, I so appreciate the artistic hand and vision that all my children carry with them.  I love that Emily chooses to magnify the retro in all her photos, bringing to light an era past, only viewed through my mother’s old photos.  Her photos are fresh and cheerful.  And no matter how much we have going on, a quick glimpse at this gorgeous smile taken at her great, great grandma’s house (on the statue donkey we all rode as children), works wonders for cheering the heart.  Thank you for allowing me to share Emily’s sweet work of Maryjane.
