I am sure this will get hammered, but I love this picture. My little Doodle Bug has started to become this wonderful little girl and this picture captures the wonderful sense of humor that she has already at two years old. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life watching her grow into the wonderful person she will soon be.

By the way, I am not sorry that I only submit pictures of my family. As a matter of fact, I won't ever stop because they are what drives me to take pictures. I sometimes get a little depressed when I see some of the very artistic pictures on this site and wish I could have opportunities to take such pictures... then, I take a picture like this of one of my daughters and I that all goes away. Pictures of children may drive some people crazy, but I would guess most of those people have never had a child and felt the power of true unconditional love. I am lucky enough to have two daughters who love me more than life even if I do something stupid, have bad breath, or a million other things that other people would judge me on.

Wow! What a rant! I feel good!

I find the light a little too flat here, it's not warm enough.

I think to have the whole face in focus might have been nice.But she is gorgeous.
