As the mother of three grown women, who were babies just yesterday, I have to say to all parents of small children: Seize the moment. You no longer have to have a sophisticated, yet cumbersome camera. Just use your phone.
Before it’s too late, snap your son’s spontaneous laugh, your daughter’s playful curtsy. Capture whimsy before cynicism and bias take over. Document innocence. Preserve the lighter side of life . . . to relive later . . . again and again.
This child, inspired by a work of art, was captured in mid-prance. The image made my day. I hope it makes yours.
