V is for...

I saw this great photo yesterday and wanted to do one like it, so I asked V to lay on the floor of the foyer and let me take a few pictures. Before I even laid down I realized that it wasn't going to work because I had my 50mm lens on the camera and I couldn't back up far enough to get the shot. I also quickly realized that she would not be patient enough for me to go get the best lens for the job and switch them out, so I just went with what I had.

I shot these in color, but b&w white really works best. Normally I might think a shot I take is decent or pretty good. Rarely do I think, oh yeah, I totally nailed that one. And if I do, I even more rarely say it out loud. But for me, this one is one of those perfect shots. Wall worthy.


V is for Violet

If you look at the large size, you might be able to see that she has Topaz written on her arm and the remnants of a kitty nose and whiskers on her face. She was pretending to be a cat I used to have named Topaz. Such a sweet girl. Today she's off with her daddy to ride the merry-go-round while I get some yarnie stuff done. Gosh, at the love!

So beautiful. Wow! Her expression says so much. Good job for catching her in that quiet moment of reflection and loving regard for her mother!


Beautiful! I so wish that I were rich enough to have a private plane to swoop you guys up, and have you take pictures of my kids! Maybe a road trip to Georgia in our well-worn mini-van will have to do?


Oh, yes, you definitely nailed this one! What a beautiful shot, Maya!




Gosh, what a photo! Breathtaking!


Definitely wall-worthy!

Wow! that is a beautiful picture. I need to try it. But for sure neither of my kids will stay still long enough, especially A. Nope she won't.
