  1. I love that she is so serene, feminine and lovely and there is a little blur of the buzz of a boy (ezra?) behind her.

  4. I love closely cropped photos, but sometimes I feel as if people think they are accidents. I mean, why can't I get the top of my kid's head in the frame?

    Oh well, it's not about what is expected, it's about what connects.

  7. Yes, I agree, photographs are the wonderful. I look at so many photos online but feel like we loose some of the magic of having the actual photos in our hand! Great capture!

  15. I used to have a top like that when I was about the girls age, my grandma embroided them herself... :)

    It is an intense capture though, like if we are allowed to focus on something more personal than the "big picture".
