This is the third post in our portrait series, Show & Tell, which features children ages 4-12 photographed with their favorite object.
Meet 5-year-old Mika who loves her baby doll named Ella. When Mika started sleeping in her own bed, her aunt allowed her to choose a toy as a reward–Mika chose Ella. In many ways, Mika is growing up with Ella.
Whenever Mika leaves the house, her parents created a rule: She has to leave Ella at home. Sometimes this rule makes her sad, but she knows Ella will always be there when she returns to bed. And Mika will tell you that Ella seems happy when she comes back home.
Thank you for sharing, Mika.
