when all of the great elements of a beautiful portrait come together, it really is quite stunning. each & every day that i photograph children i seem to fall into a deeper love and fascination of their spirits. the honesty and quite peace that is within them, it really is something amazing.
this lil beauty came in to have her portrait captured in a dress that was made in the 1800′s by her great (many times great) grandmother in England. every child in this family has been caputured in this dress since. i was amazed and felt very honored to be apart of such a history rich portrait. the dress itself is stunning and to run your hands over the soft material, you just think about the many generations. its pretty amazing!
i love her somber look, those big blue eyes. she is perfect.
