And she has a heart of gold, too. by 

This is my daughter, Perrin (15). Just a simple portrait in late afternoon sunlight, using some textures of my own and some from Leslie Nicole’s website French Kiss and processed in Photoshop CS2 using my own actions.

Shooting Date/Time 2011/08/31 05:18:53 PM
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/200
Av( Aperture Value ) 3.5

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.

    She is gorgeous and you are far too young to have a teenager! She hasn’t aged you one bit! Mine…well, that’s ancient history! Great portrait…love all the work I have seen of yours lately, have wanted to comment on all of them but sometimes I have to take a shower. RB has me seriously addicted!

  • ‘sometimes I have to take a shower’… lol!! your comment made me laugh. I started young, I was a teen mom for just two weeks : ) Then I turned 20. But I have 4 teenagers now. The little ones keep me young! Thanks so much for your kind words, Karen!
