My 4 year old daughter Emilie is fond of chocolate. She really does love it. When she asked me for a portrait, it didn't take long to imagine this little scenery.

Let me tell you that she was delighted with the shooting session! My wife prepared a jar of some hot, creamy chocolate... it was not too difficult for Emilie to pose and laugh as required ;-) We quickly had several good candidates for the main photo, and had great fun reviewing them. From there, I photographed various chocolate candies and used them as parts to construct the castle on the computer. And here is my little chocolate princess!

Thanks for watching, much appreciated.

Oh my goodness, Emilie is 4?! It doesn't seem long since she was a new babe. Congratulations on the HM. This photo will always be a treasure. Great work, I love that you let her get messy.

I think your "flaw" was making the tower of chocolate so believable.

Dang it.

It probably cost you some vote points.

Emilie looks like a bundle of fun, Christophe! I'm so glad you have such a willing model. It doesn't hurt that she's beautiful either. Ha!

Congratulations on your HM!

Wow, that's Emilie? I know it's trite to say but has she ever grown! And I can definitely see you in her features :-) Fun shot, lovely. Congrats on the HM :-)

Not sure how much "joy" there was for mum washing the chocolate out of the dress ;-P, but the model sure had lots of joy - you can see its real! :-) Very cute image.

I never expected this to be yours, she is such a little cutie and canít believe how big she is now., But I guess it does happen.
