Sophia was by far the easiest child Iíve ever worked with. Sheís the daughter of friends of ours who live in Melbourne. For a two-year-old she listened to instructions well. Thatís very rare...but she does have great parents. I bought this beautiful red dress and beret a while ago and was waiting for the perfect model. I thought our yearly get together in South Australia would be just the place this could happen. Every year a group of friends from all over Australia get together in Robe, itís a beautiful beachside town. I organised before hand with my friend, that I would love to use Sophia to promote this dress for any other future portrait shoots. Of course her mum was thrilled to bits with this prospect... and she loved the photos immensely.

Do you often buy clothing waiting on a model to wear them?

This gorgeous image and this beautiful wee girl could have come straight from a fairy tale book.
Absolutely wonderful work, Anita.

Fun place to capture this image. Colors seem a tad warm - little too much perhaps?
