Dua is my 6 (turned 7 today) years old niece with a mind of a 12 years old & is absolutely lovable. You know the type of personality that can light up the whole room? Yup! She’d be the one. Hands Down. No, Seriously! I’m not saying that because she’s my niece and I adoreeeeeeee her to pieces. Well, that too. But I’m saying that because she truly is a extremely smart for her age, is a character & has a personality with a spark.
Since the day she was born, I made it my mission to document her entire life. With cell-phone camera, to point&shoot, to my 5D Mark III, she never fails to pose with her endless expressions – spontaneous smile, broken teeth, questioning eyes, turning the computer with her toe, Lady Gaga style – she’s certainly my favorite model & it has always been a trip chasing her with my camera. I can never get enough of her photos & she knows it very well. It’s like I want to capture and save her smiles, evil smirks, bewitching laughter, sparkly eyes – her entire childhood. Part of it is also because I hardly have any of my own childhood photos.
So before you scroll down, let me WARN you. Do NOT be deceived by that innocent smile. She’s a little fire-cracker who adds flare, colors, festivity, and magic to our lives…
Dua is answer to our prayers, smiles to our blues, spark to our eyes, life of my life, … & of my photos as well <3
