Default Exercise in makeup

Only yesterday she was napping in her pram. Now she's practicing makeup with her mother.

This is a quick grab shot on the balcony. It was -10 C so sorry about not bothering too much about the background and stuff. They are not perfect but she is.

Oh my gosh! You are going to be pacing up and down, looking at your watch, looking out to the moonlit street, tired, hoping that boyfriend will bring her back this timecwell before her curfew of 12:45 am!

Enjoy this stress-free period!

This now is heaven!

.....and she's a delightful pumpkin!

Nice light, nice, pretty, cute model to adore!
Great shot, we don't care about bg in such case!

Actually, this natural bg works so well with a young daughter, a real person, a treasure. We don't have to present young girls as glamorous Fadhionistas, LOL!

I personally love the technique exactly as you have executed your ideas for this picture. She is shown as a little lady, in her home, being a child and in safety. That makes me feel far better than if she is weaponized in glitter and the background is creatively slick and perfect!

Too true! Right now she thinks boys in her class are idiots (and stink) but that will change. I'm going to have to build a porch and buy a shotgun.

Jarmo, she gets more and more adorable. She seems so confident and I imagine can sometimes be a handful to handle, but that only means that she's pretty smart. She is just lovely and the light is just as pretty as she and the background really doesn't matter - it softened out, in any case.

Since I've been here, I've slowly seen her growing up. How old is she now?

Thank you Antonio!

Ahem, I'm the father, LOL! I do feel like a grandpa sometimes, though.




Maggie,

that is so nice of you to say. And that's right, I've been here for quite a while, as well.


She's nine, would you imagine! As I'm writing this, I'm having an argument with her about MY iPad and her right to use it. And I'm losing.
