“CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM HEAVEN. I’m pretty excited and elated about my new style of child portraiture. Before I thought of Photographing the @the_j3_sisters , I have had frivolous ideas of how I can make artsy portraits of kids And do away from the norm .
The opportunity came and I had to take a bold step to express my ideas of how I want to take
portraits of kids.
I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless.
I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes.
Posing them as adults ! Was my trick to create it a timeless portrait. J A R E , when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style.”
