Finding the catch-light in the eyes was my first lesson in photography. No matter how awful I mess up the white balance, or overexpose the image, or capture the moment relatively out of focus – I cannot stop looking at their eyes.
When we go outside and I say “look up and give mommy a big smooch” – I see it – that light in their eyes. And I melt a thousand melts of motherhood.
It doesn’t get much better.
