Group Description

My name is Holli. I am a writer, an artist, a photographer-for-fun, a horrible housekeeper, a loyal friend and an amazing mother to my daughter and our dog.

I used to teach. I also spent a decade doing graphic art and web design for a large company based out of Dallas. The three years I spent as a completely single mother gave me the utmost appreciation for the time I can now spend staying home with my daughter, Faith. I now get paid to write about our lives. But I was doing that anyway. Along with photos - my journal is a gift I am leaving to my daughter.

I believe that all children are beautiful in some way, shape or form. This group was created to showcase beautiful, artistic, creative photographs of children.

I write about life. I like pictures that speak about life. It's as simple and as complex as that.

The photographs will be added to the pool by invitation only. They will be selected based on several factors. Do they portray something about childhood, innocence, youth, purity, curiousity - some quality that is so special it NEEDS to be captured and shared?

This is NOT a group for portraits. This is NOT a group for parents to compete about whose child is the cutest. I'm sorry - that's... not normal. Your child is NOT YOU.

And there are umpteen bazillion groups where you can display those photos all over flickr.

If this group ends up with three fantastic photos by true artists that understand the nature of childhood - I'll be happy.

I'm not looking for numbers here in regards to membership. I'm looking for quality, artistry, creativity - and people who actually..

CARE.

This is probably going to be the slowest growing group on flickr - but I'm hand-picking each image myself and now they're all going into moderation. Honestly, I know what I have in mind - and it's exceptional.. the best of the best. So maybe this group is small and not well-known, but if your picture was invited - just know it was picked by an incredibly picky individual.

And if images are invited that I disagree with later - they will be deleted after one month.
