I started my Childhood Wonder collection a few years ago because I am fascinated with the freedom children have and their willingness to trust without question. God teaches us to love and trust Him like children, and I think it's so important to observe children from time to time to remember how simple they make life. I don't have any children of my own yet, but as an aunt and human I notice how children don't worry or fret for anything. They enjoy life. The kids in this shoot took direction very well, and brought their full personality to the shoot. My husband and I ran around with them, and I left the session full of enthusiasm despite my fatigue. Whenever life feels too heavy, I hope you too simply reflect on the wonders of childhood and remember a time when you were full of wonder, trust, and curiosity.
"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 19:14
