I look at photographs like this and feel so very proud.
The eyes, the half smile, the way her hair falls around her cheek, the Look, contrast of her black-as-night eyes with her beautiful olive skin; THIS right here is the very essence of my little girl.
And I took that photograph.
I have always always had a passion for taking photos over the years but it’s only since I had children I decided to up my game and improve myself.
Through trial and error mainly. Through experimenting and getting my very willing volunteers to help me out.
And now I can take pictures like this? Well, I am really quite proud of myself.
I’m no expert and barely a hobbyist truth be told, but it’s something I really enjoy and I am chuffed to bits and pieces that I can hold my hand up and say ‘I took that’.
