Julia kept nervously looking back at her mom for reassurance. But within minutes, this 4 year old was posing for me - looking right at the camera, then looking away - moving her hands and pantomiming a story that only she understood. It was all so natural, as though she spends every day modeling in front of the camera!
Julia has cochlear implants and is learning how to speak. We met at the office of one of her therapeutic clinics to help ease her anxiety right off the bat. But something tells me that wasn't necessary - I think the smiles would have been there no matter what location we chose for her Mommy & Me portrait session!
