“What a blessing it is when you come across a photographer that can take the fantasy one has in their mind and create it in real life."
Lisa Rodriguez

“Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'” The Velveteen Rabbit
