Wow... What a GEORGEOUS LITTLE GIRL!!! She's a doll! I really LOVE this pic too, Michael! I love the way she's to the right side of the photo, I love her hair falling in her face, I love her expression, and the love the clarity and softness of the photo... It's just too beautiful!!! An excellent portrait! :D #1007481

Wow... thanks to all of you, I really appreciate all your kind words.
This is a friends's daughter, and i've been very patient with her trying to find that "natural look on her face" I was looking for. #1007580

Tammy L. Bevins January 01, 2005

Beautiful. I think you succeeded in finding the natural look. So much more appealing than a posed look.... #1007669
