i have been fortunate enough to be added to a photographer project — open letters to our daughters. i saw amy grace’s post on her blog about it and loved it. its a circle of photographers with images and letters to their daughter(s) and we link to each other in a circle.
warning: im not much of a writer.. hence the camera.. but its from the heart.
the photos were taken on the day of their spring dance performance with maui academy of performing arts earlier this month.
dear hannah and noelle,
i see you. i see through the make-up. through the costumes. through your sassy attitude. and this is what I see.
2 young girls. trying to grow up fast. brave girls. brave enough to dance in front of hundreds. braver than I ever was or am.
but girls just the same. don’t try to grow up so fast. i see you laughing. i see you playing with bubbles still. i see you giggling in the car.
i see you being nervous. i see your shyness. its ok to be young. you don’t feel it, but time is flying by.
we went through alot this year. and you girls are stronger for it. our family is stronger for it.
for your bravery.. on and off the stage.. you have my gratitude and admiration.
and of course, my love forever.
