This is a re-edit of my original “Beautiful” image, I was never entirely happy with the original but didn’t know how to fix it before. I’m happier with it now!! :)

This is my gorgeous daughter (original photo taken by my mother, used with permission), the background is Paekakariki Beach in beautiful Aotearoa, New Zealand. :)

Proudly New Zealand-made. :)

Featured in Solo Exhibition Jan 25, 2010.
