While spending time at the lake with our family, I observed my
10-year-old niece Hayley trying on her dad’s cowboy hat. The
moment I saw her wearing it I knew I would be using her as a
subject. I asked if I could take a few pictures of her. Of her
many ‘poses’, this one was the most natural and unintended. She
just happened to glance down at her side. This was the image
that I chose – young innocence at its best.
