out of the mouths of babes…

What did the alien say to the garden? Take me to your weeder… If you didn’t laugh at this, it’s safe to say your childhood is behind you.

Children possess something that all adults have lost, the quality of innocence.
I can remember with clarity when my youngest daughter started to lose that quality. She was playing with dolls under our bay window, hidden from the outside world. When I asked why she was huddled with her Barbie, complete with pink VW beetle in such a tight spot, her answer was that she didn’t want to be seen by other children (she was 21 years old after all, that’s an old joke, but still funny).
When I’m walking down the street listening to my tunes I’d love to burst into song and even bust a couple of moves, but sadly my childhood innocence is long gone and has been replaced with adult self-consciousness.
I’m going to blog a selection of wedding based questions that I’ve asked children who have been at weddings I’ve photographed and I’m hoping some of that innocence shines through. The first lot of my wedding based questions have been answered by 8 year old Mia. I photographed her Mum & Dad’s wedding at Wynyard Hall earlier this year.
