It was her mother that e-mailed me about Hebe. That she wanted to give her daughter the feeling she was special. Extra special for one day.
And on this very rainy day, I photographed a little girl with a big, honest smile and a lot of looking forward to this world and everything it has to offer. We conquered a thousand raindrops, searched for crocodiles and played games while we walked in the mud with our fancy shoes on.
She was fearless. The kind of kid you wanted to wake up with on a summer sunday morning and explore the day with.
