Life Stories Series: Oh, the Places You’ll Go! | Kitchener-Waterloo Child Photographer

If there’s one thing I adore, it’s baby toes and feet. I always take numerous pictures of feet/toes during a newborn session because there is something so very special about those soft soles that are perfect and precious and not yet hardened by life’s rough roads.

When I saw these three pictures I took the other day, they made me think about my favourite Dr Seuss book: Oh, the Places You’ll Go. I wonder where these precious dancing feet, playing feet, thoughtful feet will take my two munchies. I know that as they grow, their soles (and souls) will become a bit harder, more well-traveled. Hopefully not too hard, or beat up by life. I hope that they live. I hope they’re not afraid to try new things, explore all their opportunities. Travel new roads. I hope that they respect themselves and other people regardless of their differences. I hope they walk with integrity, knowing that they’ve been true to who they are. And most of all I hope that they never stop dancing.

What is it that these life stories are about, you might ask?

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy!

The next story in the circle belongs to Amy Lenhart, Windsor Ontario Photographer . I can’t wait to see what story she has to tell this month!
