This little girl's mother was my BFF in elementary school. She and I have renewed our friendship after 89478 years and I just had to photograph her daughter. I don't have a lot of kids this age in my portfolio- maybe mom's get over it by the time their children are 9 or 10. I don't know. But I love this age. They are so awkward and unsure of themselves and its fun to try to capture the REAL them on camera!
