Looks like a poster you'd buy in a store or something you'd see in a museum, doesn't it? The color is so vivid. The sunlight and shadow are beautiful. And the old barn and weathered fence backdrop is just amazing.
It's my niece, Tatum, running though her backyard wearing her ladybug tee and tu-tu. It was taken by a professional photographer who'd come to my sister's house to take some portraits of the kids. She just happened to snap this at the right moment. It was completely random and not staged at all. I thought I'd share it just because I love it so much. I think it perfectly captures that childhood feeling of the pure freedom and magic of summertime.
