I've said before that I love photographs of people when they are Captured Unaware. Private moments secretly caught are so revealing. Posed portraits can never tell stories like that. Recently, I had the opportunity, nay the pleasure, of photographing the children of a wonderful friend. We got some really nice posed shots for the family, but my favorite of the day is this sweet little shot of the daughter.
She is absolutely precious. I love everything about this casual shot, taken secretly as she walked past.
I played with it a little to give it an old, sepia feel and I love this one too.
Her innocence is captured here but for a moment...wouldn't it be nice to keep that innocence forever?
