Ah, the eyes! From day one as a mother, I would gaze into my children’s eyes. It became a point of connection. Hard to quite put into words how much you fall in love with the way they light up when they smile, tear up when they’re in pain or trying so hard to be brave, the far away glances as they are deep in thought and of course those long long lashes! (We won’t focus on those angry scowls accompanied with the pursed, pouty lips for this post!) In portrait photography, it is the eyes that draw you in. They can tell a captivating and emotive story.
