Emily Ulmer knows how to capture children in an image without any staging. She says, “In my photographs, I attempt to show the beauty of childhood in its most natural state, without the romanticizing interpretation of the adult eye.” I love that thought. But when I posted about Emily’s work on Design Mom, it got a big and varied reaction. Some people think she doesn’t make childhood look happy enough. What do you think?

By the way, she’s just opened up an Etsy shop that I am fawning over.
