      it is a wonderful twosome, a loving portrait! What is really striking (to me) is the expression of the girl, she seems so at ease, almost casual with the task at hand, one wonders if these little ones know so much more already than we grown ups dare to think...

      As I am not good at taking a portrait, this photo gives me food for thought. Very natural and sweet expressions.... Wonderful!

      It's the simple moments like this which parents remember the most but rarely is it ever photographed for posterity. A class portrait shot of a mother and daughter, and so much more a better image because it shows them doing something together. Wonderful!
