I think that what makes children the best subjects for photographs is the fact that they have not yet learned to mask their emotions, to “pose” for the camera. Naked and unfeigned emotions display themselves on their faces.

Jimmy took this last weekend at Hayli’s birthday party. His daughter, Meechia, is the blonde at the right and the other two children are friends who came to the party.
