This shot was completely by accident!
I saw my daughter sneaking into the peppermint sticks and she grabbed the green blanket and covered herself so no one could see!
Needless to say, she was pretty shocked!

Lena -- great shot. I wonder about making her skin tones just a bit less green? Love the peppermint. Janet

This photo shows the brilliance of the surprise. Sometimes the best photos are the once that were accidental. And this proves it. Awesome job, and keep up the work. The lighting was great too! :D

Simply AWESOME capture.. Congrats on POTD also, what about creating something in her eyes using photoshop or something? Just something to pull you in, I think that would be fantastic. But even how it is, this photo is Great!!
