There are many reasons why I love photographing people, children in particular. But by far, what I love most about it is capturing the eyes. When I look at photographs, the first thing I am drawn to are the eyes, and I've been noticing lately that it's what I am drawn to in real life too. My friends all tease me because I am constantly saying "Wow, your son/daughter/sister/cousin/friend/fill-in-the-blank has the
most amazing eyes!" They laugh and say "Oh you say that about everyone!". Maybe I do, but I still mean it. And it's true. Look around you. Look at people. Look into their eyes. Isn't it amazing? Isn't it beautiful? Aren't the eyes captivating?
Here are some of my favorite eyes...
Riley's smile seems to come even more from her eyes than her mouth. She's such a little beauty.
My own Mikey's baby blues, passed down from my mother, are the eyes I always wished I had, and am so blessed to look at each day.
I love Levi's eyes. What color is that? Gray blue? And how preciously they gaze outward, as his father cherishes him.
I dare you to look at these big blue eyes and not just laugh with delight. I fell in love with Brody in a split second and it was all because of his big blue eyes!
