I have been unable to choose a favourite portrait from Mila’s little garden dancing session the other day. My camera was set to continuous shooting mode and this shot was taken immediately after Catch Her if You Can as she spun around – in fact, the camera’s exif data records it as in the very same second… Isn’t it wonderful when everything just works out – right place, right time, right light… a kind of magic seems to take over and you end up with a wealth of images, each one as good as or better than the last. I decided to have some fun in photoshop and give my little model the blue hair she might have in an alternate universe. : )

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
