this or that thursday: josie

Last week my niece was in town for a few days and she let me take a few pictures of her while we were at the park. Portraits are not my strong point. I have trouble figuring out the lighting and posing and composition. But Josie makes it a lot easier. She is so beautiful inside and out. And I love those freckles!

  10. Good morning Deb,
    So many members in your family seem to have such fine and delicate features. Must be a delight to have those for models.

  11. She's so pretty!

    And your photos came out beautifully. I need to work on my portraits too ~ lighting and posing are hard for me too. Also cropping, I've seen people partially crop faces to get close ups and I love it but when I do it to my own, I cringe.
