One of the perks of getting into photography is that I will never have to buy those school mug shots. This year (which just so happens to be her first) I dressed her up all pretty on school picture day, but when the pictures came out I wasn't happy, her hair was messed up and she didn't look like herself at all. So today she came to me asking if I would take some pictures of her, so of course I jumped at the chance to photograph a willing little girl. We took tons of shots, but I can't get over this one. I can't decide if I like it better in color or black and white, but it is her... all the way. She is usually so busy and wants me to take tons of action pics. so I was pleasantly surprised when she was sweetly sitting still and gazing up at me. Ahhh. 2 of my joys in life, raising my gorgeous kids and taking pictures to remember them as they truly are.
