Better than Dreams

At least once a year, if not more, I like to do a shoot for fun. I like to take pictures of someone I just want to see pictures of, pick out the clothing, pick out the vision. Addis was my “one” this year. I dreamed up this girl in my head and asked for models. I had many applicants, but Addis was the model I had dreamt up; except better. Isn’t it true? Isn’t she better than anyone’s dreams? How appropriate, for this girl was what her parents dreamed up, worked for and hoped for and the day they were finally allowed to make this girl a part of their lives – all the way across the ocean in Ethiopia…I know that day was better than they dreamt it would be. She is an amazingly sweet, fun, silly and, above all, patient little girl. I had to pick up my daughter in the middle of the session because it went longer than expected and she joined for the rest of the time. She wanted to take Addis home; I wanted to take Addis home; Shannon wanted to take Addis home. She’s a gem. Speaking of Shannon – she fell out of a tree for this session – twice. She’s also a gem and deserves recognition for her efforts.
