Flower Child Minis - Atlanta, Georgia Child Photography

This Spring, I am doing something a little bit different for my mini sessions! I really wanted to think outside of the box, do something to capture the innocence and whimsy of childhood, and create beautiful portraits that would expand beyond the reaches of just this season of life and into something of real legacy. As I look back on my own images of childhood, I get a sense of nostalgia and wonder. That feeling of nostalgia inspired every bit of these flower child mini sessions and I can't wait to give that gift to not only the parents of these kiddos, but to their older selves as they look back at these images!

I think Joan Walsh Anglund, one of my favorite children's book authors and poets, wrote a short story that says it best. It is called "Childhood is a Time of Innoncence," and it goes like this:
Childhood is a time of innocence,
It is the morning time of life
when all is change and wonder.
It begins with being born
and ends with growing up.

It is a small world of pennies and wishes...
of sudden friendships...
and short sorrows.

It is big stairs and small footprints.

It is joy...and laughter...and make-believe.

Childhood is a magic place of dreams...
where everything is possible
and the best is just beginning.

It is a timeless place...
where minutes are not numbered
and the hours are sweet with happiness.

Childhood is for exploring...
It is for running...and reaching...
and touching...and seeing...
and tasting...and hearing...
and learning...
but mostly, it is for growing.

Childhood is when we are young.
It is the happy hour...
the passing dream...
the tender time of innocence
that is part of us forever.
