Gee whiz, she's a pretty lass.
I remember when your daughter, then a sub-10 year old, came on a GTG to Mt. Diablo.
Ready for anything, she was (and undoubtedly still is.)

Beautiful portrait of a lovely girl. Photography is a wonderful way to capture a fleeting moment. A photo burns the memory ever deeper into our consciousness each time we view it.

This is such a lovely, appealing portrait. This photo captures the fascinating beauty of redheads. The viewer first notices the striking hair but is immediately drawn in by her sparkling blue eyes. The freckles give this a playful quality and her direct gaze and hint of a smile make it special.

Wow. wonderful, "real" capture of skin tones and hair, right down to the vaguely "bruised" look under the eyes that's so characteristic of some redheads. Beautiful framing witht he hair, as well.

What a beautiful portrait! I love her peaches and cream complexion with the freckles. She may one day hate them then learn to celebrate them. Only thing, I wish her eyes were less shadowed so they would pop against the red hair. 8

This is my ribbon winner. I don't know if it will do it, because people seem to like the angel-effect, but I like realism. Everything about this portrait is classy and sharp as a tack. If this girl is a family member, this one is for the wall...10

Very striking. Natural look to it. Beautiful eyes and hair for sure. I think a smidge of post editing would have helped soften it up just that little bit that would send it over the edge for me. Lovely girl!!
