Laughter : 2009

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
love laughter. I love the way it looks, I love the way it sounds, the way it makes the soul shine. Laughter betrays the happiest part of a person and I'm attracted to it like a magnet. As a photographer, when I'm able to document laughter, I feel like the luckiest person alive. Based on the following selection of photos, 2009 has proven to be my lucky year.

With many thanks to my clients, I've captured a piece of their soul. And I'm incredibly thankful.
