I had the pleasure of the company of this little miss for an afternoon over the weekend. Reading books, piano playing, blowing up balloons, dog and cat petting, baking…all those fun things. When I pulled out my camera she seemed years beyond her ‘almost 5 years’.

My direction was simple… I’d love to take your photo…………and she did the rest. Such a little professional. I guess the fact that her mum is also a photographer says that she is well practiced at striking up a pose. :-)

    You’ve done very well indeed. My 5 yo still pulls faces at me when I take her photo!

    Great key and tones, suits the expression perfectly.

  • Aren’t they funny. Mine used to do that when they were little…in fact they still do it….lol

    Thanks Tim

    What a little treasure!! Not only is she a gorgeous little thing but she obviously loves the camera.
    This is gorgeous, love the catchlights in the eyes :))

  • She is such a cutie. I might have to have her around more. Her hair reaches her waist and it’s all in ringlets. I was blown away by the way she looked right into the lens and didn’t move until she knew I had finished with the shot. What a natural!
