Day 8 - Natural Beauty
This is my 5 year old daughter, Erika. I wish I could look so beautiful first thing in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening....well, anytime, really. I always emphasize to my girls that their true beauty is on the inside. And we try not to over do telling them how beautiful they are on the outside. The last thing I want my girls to do is be overly concerned about their looks (or anyone else's for that matter!) as they mature. We don't even talk about makeup until they're at least 15 or 16, and then it's only used on a limited basis. But on the inside we all see that natural beauty our little ones possess and want to bottle it up for them so they can keep it forever. Wouldn't that be nice? Instead, I'll stick with capturing these moments with my trusty camera. It's almost as good.
