Beautiful Messes

I actually do comb her hair and yet, no matter how many bows, clips or ties I try - this is always where we end up (and usually in less than 5 minutes). :) Another photo from a session with my daughter. Converted to black and white. Enhanced her eyes, enriched the black and softened the tones.
