Play, wonder, growth, imagination, and mischief: the world of kids is full of magic.

Potions made of mud and leaves, stirred with a stick so powerful it could poke your eye out...these are the moments I want: images capturing the creative minds and spirits of children.

A thousand summer freckles splashed across their faces. Dancing in their "party dress" and telling secrets to their sister. Loud, messy, wild, free, stubborn, shy, and curious - kids remind us how wonderful it is to be ourselves.

Please enjoy these selections that are among the favorites in my collective portraits of children.
