Purity can be very timid, but when she is needed to help she becomes more confident and in her element. One thing we learned by watching Purity is when you give her a camera and just let her go at her own pace she is poised and self-assured, however if you try to show her what to do or give to much direction she gets a bit nervous and self conscious. After realizing this, we changed directions and would talk about concepts and ideas casually and later would see Purity capturing the things we’d talked about. Everyone learns differently, and when it came to Purity she wanted to forge her own path at her own pace. And she did it just as she does everything – with grace.
