The other day I photographed a child for one of my school assignments. She played with the dogs and jumped on the trampoline and searched for the perfect apples under our apple tree.

I couldn't help but notice how sweet everything seemed to her. The way she jumped at sticks she found on the ground and laughed as she played tug-a-war with the border collie. Even when she first arrived, our jack russells were jumping all over her in excitement. Where most kids have gotten very nervous and run away, she only giggled shyly and stood by my side as I tried to control the dogs.

She reminded me of a whole different kind of fearless that I'll like to get back to.
