Playtime | Grand Rapids Family Photographer

It was so fun to take photos of my friend and her daughter as they played outside their apartment when I was recently in the Philippines. This little gal takes in the world with such curiosity and fearlessness. She is carefree as her mom works as a midwife at Shiphrah Birthing Home (part of Help International Ministries) nearby. Their bond is so strong, and it was a joy to hang out with them in a place so near and dear to all of us.

My friend told me that this has been a treasured time of their lives, and I'm glad they will always have documentation of this season and these memories.
