Children have their own way of seeing. Children also have their own way of being seen!
Try telling a child - "please stand still", or " would you please stand here, and look a little to your left, with your chin slightly lower". It will never work!!
In fact, if you even try telling a child, "can you please stand here", it is quite likely that by the time you have stepped back far enough and turned, the child is nowhere close to where you placed him or her.
Children also have their own rules. They don't smile because you say "look here and smile". That comment will most likely get you a juicy frown! So, how do you take an image of a child?
A glimpse of mischief which comes to surface every now and then..
A moment of connection, where his eyes speak.
The simple beauty of sharing something funny!
To be allowed into the world of a child, you have to become a child yourself. Actually, all you have to do, is allow the child within you to look out ! Then you will see that blissful smile that a child gives when he sees another child.
There is so much beauty in the world of a child. Often, you have to just look, and you will see the laughter happening all on its own.
Sometimes you dance to music that can be heard only if you listen within.
I could go on and on, for I love to work with kids.
Here's one of my favorites - that twinkle in his eye is so captivating.
Children are simple. There world is beautiful! It is direct, happy, full of fun, energy, and love. All you have to do, is enter it....
