This photo is emotional for me. The more I look at it, the more it says to the father inside me. This shot is of my daughter Lyla on Easter, just walking down the yard, seemingly oblivious to anything but where she wants to go.
And that is exactly her. She is always walking…always moving…always headed somewhere. Nothing will stop her. She’s going to do great things one day.
When I see her in this picture…it’s a foreshadowing of what the future holds…something that every father likely never looks forward to. His little girl leaving.
Sure…I want nothing but the best for her. I’m so excited to see what she becomes and where she goes. I’ll be her biggest fan, I know it.
But moments like this, captured in a photo…will forever be in my head. Memories of when the world was new to her and the future was a place she was already longing to be.
