In less than three months, my baby girl will be six. She’s still little, yes, but it hit me today how much she’s changed and grown. And honestly, how much she’s helped me grow, too. I know it’s cliche, but she is the reason I keep pushing, the reason I strive to be better in everything, from my personal life to my documentary photography. Sure, there’s a lot I do for myself. But to be honest, even my relatively new habits of self-care are because of her. How could I adequately teach her to take care of, stick up for, and love herself, if I wasn’t trying to do the same?

So here’s a post to my little sweet girl.

I have so much more to tell you, but I can’t seem to put it into words. I love you forever. Thank you for bringing so much joy to my life.
