It is a happy talent to know how to play. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it and he's pretty smart. This is Susanna (hugger) and Genevieve (hug-ee). They know how to play. Well, at least Susanna does, and I have a feeling she is pretty antsy for Genevieve to get the hang of it. When I left this shoot I was smiling a lot. Playing just makes me happy. I loved watching as Susanna stepped foot out the front door and the yard became her fairytale. She was just running fearlessly and twirling like she had wings. True freedom and lack of inhibition. It's a beautiful thing.

This is an afternoon at the Goff house. Such a sweet slice of was truly a joy to document.
