JULIA | AGE: 6
We went to hang out with Julia on an evening just like any other and when she greeted us she was her smiley and excited self, the Julia we know. Then when it was time to photograph her we (her and I) went into her families' gorgeous music room and once the door was shut, she sat at her piano with such poise and grace. She took a breath and once she started playing, a fairytale energy took over the room as she speedily (and oh so very well) played such happy songs.
Her focus was intense, and her little fingers moved across the keys almost professionally. Every few notes she had a soft smile of pure joy. Then when she was done she would turn to me with excitement, her whole face lit up in giggles and laughs like if nothing had even happened and I felt SO privileged to have been able to be in the room with such an amazingly talented, intelligent, and creative little girl.
