Just one look, Elena completely stole my heart. Oh… the look of her eyes, don’t you just adore her? There’s no doubt that she will grow up to be a gorgeous girl.
I sometimes pre-visualize what I want to photograph and then talk and direct when I am shooting, but hey, she knows how to work the camera. I found myself holding breath, just clicking and clicking. All I have to say: Elena is seriously beautiful in every way. I don’t remember me looking like this in my early days… sigh… I really could photograph her all day! The best part – she is already very talented and have great personalities.
My heart gets deeply touched each time I put together photos of a family. I cry, gush, smile over images and images. Sometimes I even imagine their emotion and expression upon seeing the photos. I am graciously sharing these heartfelt images, the results of two-hour cooperation among Elena, her parents and me. It could have taken me forever working on these photos if I didn’t yell at myself to pause. I also want to thank her mommy and daddy, and I hope these moments will make you smile everyday.
