Just because...


Last night I felt the need to take a photo of my daughter.  It had been awhile and she’s getting to the age where she’s a little more willing to work with me.  I knew I only had a few minutes….in really bad light…to make something that captured the spirit of this little girl growing before my eyes.

So where did we go?  The bathroom of course.  I took a seat on the throne (and yes, it was closed)…and asked her to come over.

She’s funny.  She knows me.  She said, ‘Do you want me to look this way?’….and turned her head away.

I laughed.

‘Look back toward me….up, at the window’.

…and a second later I got it.

Far from perfect technically, but then again, I could say that about most of my work. 

…it’s her.  A bright spark on a cloudy day.  Full of creativity, energy and emotion…

Always my little girl….but growing nonetheless.

I love you Madygirl.
