Daniella, thank you for your kind comments and ovservations on this image!

At this session I actually used my monopod instead of my tripod and found that it was not a good idea... I guess I am a little more rickety then I use to be...Next time MUST USE TRIPOD!! lol Once again thank you! Have a wonderful night :) #6412970

Gena, in my gallery I answer to a comment in this way:

I don’t think there is a great difference in amount of smiles between boys and girls.
I think we prefer to see the smiles of girls (or women) because they do it so attractively and with natural beautiful expressions that it can be compared to the gorgeousness of a flower: the rose.

Thanks Gena for sharing this great portrait! #6419245
