In the digital age, many parents choose to document their children's lives through the lens of a smartphone. These striking portraits offer a more artistic perspective on the lives of young children.

Cavanaugh's series is called 'Immerse' and it consists of a series of watercolor portraits of young children. Each stunning illustration captures a different childhood emotion, including surprise, curiosity and trepidation. These expressions are painted using pale blue tones, which gives the portraits a soft and gentle look. The overall effect is a series of intimate portraits that convey the innocence of childhood.
