A glimpse of the future

October 2, 2008

Every once in a while, I’ll catch an expression on one of my children’s faces that acts like a window into the future. For just a brief second, I have an idea of what they’ll look like and who they’ll be when they are grown.  I luckily photographed such a moment the other day during an informal session with my kids for Halloween. They both just got their costumes,  I wanted to play with my new camera and also send some photos of them in their costumes to relatives.

I got this one of Genevieve:

 

While I have better portraits of her, I keep coming back to this one.  She’s only 3, but I swear I can see a little glimpse of her as a young woman. It’s a reminder to me of how fast she’s growing and that I need to slow down and savor her childhood.
