The image says it all. I was taken a-back by the intricacy of creation when I shot this 4 month little girl while she was asleep. I was hopping around her crib in my socks, my shutter clicking so loudly; there she lie, in a peace not known to many adults, not one movement was made. I began to look at her little self in amazement and awe; "I was just as little as she is right now", I thought to myself. The mystery of child bearing, and the circle of life had me in awe. What a creative Creator!
Yes, I'm the girl who gets simple but profound revelation from photoshoots, and movies, and cleaning. I'm the girl who cries at the sight of someone elses pain. I'm the girl who gets attached to people, and then loves so hard that its almost physically impairing. I'm the girl who prefers the little things over the finer things any day. I'm the girl who get's life changing encouragement from watching a child just be. I've questioned the way I was made one too many times, and then I encounter these moments; where I'm reminded that I was wonderfully and fearfully made- NO MISTAKE. Then I breathe, cry a little, and then learn how to celebrate the intricacy of my complexities with genuine gratitude. Until I start questioning again, and I do it all the same, learning something new every time.
Shooting this little girl reminded me of some sweet truths and today I am thankful that I was put together like I am, because I get to see deep meanings in simple things. I get to learn how to celebrate the complexities of, not only myself, but people around me, and from there I learn how to love those intricate differences.
