The soul of my business is to give girls the freedom to be in the joy of the moment. To capture a sense of weightlessness with hopes that their prints will forever remind them of that feeling.
I feel that I have to restate this more to myself than anyone else as reassurance that I’m making a difference for the better. There was a time when it was unimaginable to go to school in fear of not coming home. Added to the mix is the ever increasing pressure of excelling at school, sports and piling on the activities in the never ending race to get into a better school, to get a better job… I quite honestly can’t imagine being a kid today.
I always have a set during photoshoots when I ask the girls to spin. I almost feel that it’s cathartic,
…spinning away the heaviness that we don’t even know is there. Getting back to that little kid without a care in the world. I’ll never stop that. I’ll never stop laughing and getting silly with them.
It may sound frivolous in the whole scheme of things but I do believe it’s one small step towards making kids feel like kids again.
Take a look at what Becky has to say about her photoshoot and how it made her feel or go to Instagram and see Jillian blissfully swinging. What are the little things you do to make your kids feel like kids?
