We all have instances as parents where we become acutely aware of the speed with which our children are growing. Flashes in the day where we catch a glimpse of our little ones not in the way they are but people they will soon become.
For me, photography has always been a way to capture subjects in a way that helps them be seen as they are. Ironically, these portraits of my 9 and 11 year old started out with the same goal but looking at the faces of my children in these photographs brings into stark relief the young adults they are becoming all too quickly. -Hayley
