I love my daughter. She is simply awesome!

[Oct. 19th, 2013 04:43:20 AM]

As there has been some concern expressed, the child was not actually chained. The child is my daughter and not only is she used to her mother's crazy ideas, but under no circumstances would I cause actual harm to her, especially not for the sake of a picture. For those who are still concerned, she is actually lying down with the chains draped over her face, the ends tucked behind her head, which was resting on a soft support. I had a fully qualified first aider present during the entire shoot (which lasted mere minutes) and we both continuously asked her if she was uncomfortable or if anything hurt in any way at all. I regret now that I was remiss in doing a 'complete' photo shoot - you know, include the shots where the chains slipped, she was laughing, she tried poking tongues etc etc.

In short, she was fine, is fine and will continue to be fine... it's her mother you should all be worried about! :)

probably my favorite in this challenge, but i m a bit concerned that chaining the child that way may be a bit much. Please write about that in your description.
