This little sweetheart is the big sister to a newborn that I got to photograph recently.  She is so much fun to be around and while still a challenge to get focused before she took off again, the ice cream cone worked well here.  She wasn't even upset when the two Golden Retrievers ran over and managed to lick the whole scoop of ice cream off her cone in a flash. At only 3 years old she has the most beautiful hair I think I have ever seen on such a young child --- thick, long, and a wonderful red/gold/brunette, and her eyelashes are to die for!  But her personality is even better --- I had to laugh at her crossed eyes, whistling, choking, etc etc when she was tired of posing.


  1. What's not to like about this photo? Nice exposure, pretty subject and ice cream. I hope you did shoot a few without the ice cream. The colors all work for me as does the tilt of her head. Framing works well here too.

  2. I really like the color combination and the controlled background, however, it seems that her pose is a little off--you have movement from left to right and then her head takes you radically back to the left. Great expression.
