Her Special Place {Mid Michigan Artistic Child Photographer}

Sometimes they just need a special place to retreat to. This special little girl has a close place in my heart (as does her brother ~ which I will share more of them both later). But for today, this one gets a post all it's own. "A" has been pretty sick lately and undergone some surgeries that no little one should have to endure at her age. So when Mom called to schedule a special session to lift her spirits I wanted to make it extra special for her. When I found out she loved to read, I knew immediately what I wanted to create for her. A special place tucked away where she could sit and enjoy her book. It was so nice to see smiles from her and the joy this session brought to her...and for me, well, I am beyond blessed to be able to observe these moments through my camera lens.

There will be much more to come from this session of both "A" and her brother. But for today...here is her special place.

Thank you for letting me share in the heart and soul moments of your life!!

till next time...

Ahhhhhh Hayley... what an incredible image of a beautiful little girl! You've absolutely captured something special here. I will keep your little subject in my thoughts and prayers... no child should have to endure so much.
