Childhood, is innocent at heart. To watch a child run through the backyard, catching fireflies. Hearing their laughter. Seeing the sparkle in their eyes. Their world is so precious, and untouched of hardships. Parents do everything to nurture the innocent years of their child. And deep inside parents are re-introduced to the carefree heart of a child. Playing hide and seek, blowing bubbles. The adult world is put at a standstill for the moments spent with a carefree heart. Childhood is magical and happy.
Since I have moved to Virginia, my inner child has been awakened. Seeing fireflies sparkle through the backyard, brings a smile to my face. As I am immediately brought back to the carefree nature of a child. The simple pleasures it brings to watch these creatures gracefully dance through the night skies.
In the "Carefree Heart Series" I hope to capture the innocence, magic and happiness of childhood. To be able to allow the viewer peace, and calmness.
