girl interrupted

She was watching her favorite show, Johnny Test and I wanted to check some settings on my camera. I asked her for one  minute...she wasn't too happy with me. I love this pouty little face. 

project 12 portraits - out of focus

"The art of being happy lies in extracting happiness from common things." Henry Ward Beecher

In case you are new here this is the Project 12. We are a group of photographers from around the world who get together each month to challenge our creativity with a different project. This month our assignment was out of focus. I really wanted to get Leah outside for some pictures but she never wants to cooperate. One day after gymnastics I noticed her dancing in the office and I knew I had my chance. I only had to bribe her with two suckers.

project 12 portraits - soulful

"She dances to the songs in her head, speaks with the rhythm of her heart, and loves from the depths of her soul." - Dean Jackson

This month's theme for our portrait project was soulful. While this image does not exactly scream soulful it does speak to me about Leah at this age and I will always cherish it. I asked Leah if I could take a few pictures of her she thought it would be fitting to take them of her in her leopard coat because she loves everything leopard. Leopards are so much a part of who she is at this age. So much of what she loves to wear has some sort of leopard design... from the tips of her toes to the top of her head. When I look back at this age I will always remember her love of snow leopards. I will also remember how this was the first year she really enjoyed playing in the snow. In years past, it would take at least 10 minutes to get all her gear on and she would be back in less than that asking for hot chocolate.
