A couple of weeks ago, I was introduced to a sweet girl, Miss I. Miss I grew up in a children’s boutique owned by her mother. From the time she was born, Miss I was immersed in adventure, charm, and imagination. As she grew older, her days were spent dressing up in fairy tale clothing and reading books in the brightest corner of the shop, snuggled up to her dog, Aloysius. Her favorite book characters invited her to tea parties and her friends, the forest animals, let her nap on them when she grew sleepy.
She knows every inch of the shop and excitedly helps customers discover new books, toys, and creative playthings. She reminded me of my own childhood, without electronics, just painting, reading and writing stories all day long. It made me realize just how different childhood is now, except for Miss I and her boutique. Oh, to be 11 years old again!
Miss I introduced me to two new book series for my own girls, and I bought every single book in both series! I couldn’t help but be inspired to photograph a story of the lovely Miss I and Talulah Jones. Such a world of imagination and fearless creativity!
