Nicaragua {Children}

Children are my favorite to photograph.

Instead of shying away and putting up a guard of self-consciousness like their adult counterparts, children fully embrace the opportunity to be photographed. In every trip I go on, I make a conscious effort to capture children, because as I have noticed, a child is a child, regardless of socioeconomic standing, culture, religion and race. They are effortlessly funny, awkward, unique and pure. Something as simple as seeing their own image in the back of my camera will give them joy.

Perhaps it is a little bit selfish, but It makes me unbelievably happy to be able to provide them some happiness with my camera.
