When my grandson comes to visit, he and his PaPaw love to play a special game and I love to photograph it.
Today I was editing the pictures from one such visit and I realized how much Ami must trust his PaPaw, I mean really really TRUST his PaPaw. Even us on the outside watching are not sure we trust PaPaw as much as Ami does.
Jim used to play this game with each of our kids in different ways, but the main result was always the same, tons of giggles, lots of laughing and a ton of TRUST. To trust that PaPaw is not going to let Ami fall also takes some faith.
You can see it in Ami’s eyes, and the huge smile on his face and the laughter that comes out of his belly. Ami trusts, loves and has faith in his PaPaw!
Ami believes that no matter what PaPaw is not going to hurt him. He’s not going to fall, he’s not going to get hurt, because PaPaw has Ami’s trust.
Did Jim have to earn Ami’s trust or because of the love Jim has for Ami that trust and faith was just instinctively there? I’m voting on the later! Ami just knows that he knows that he knows, that Ami is safe! Ami just relaxes and enjoys the “ride”. He smiles, laughs and enjoys every moment even asking for more (up,up,up,go,go,go)
I ask my brides to have that same kind of trust in me. I know I’m going to capture the emotion and intimate details of their wedding day. I want my brides not to worry about their photography. It’s covered.
