LIFE | Meet My Kid

Photobucket

This is Lois, she's four years old. Posting a piece of text about her and me doesn’t make sense. It is too complicated to put into words. The only thing that comes close to describing my relationship with her is that she is my life. And even that phrase has lost its meaning and seems like an understatement. I guess the easiest and only way to put it is just; I am her mother.

I did these portraits of her for a school assignment. Normally I hate shadows on someone's face. It reminds me of the phantom of the opera. My photography teacher however is a big fan. In an attempt to influence my grade a bit, I used the lightning of his taste. But by doing so I went out of my box and discovered shadows.

She is beauty, like her mother.

I like the picture, sereen, simple and true.

Astrid Anna said...

She's beautiful! and the shadows look really cool, although I think she would look sweeter with the sun in her eyes. :)

Elina said...

THIS IS MORE THAN ADORABLE. I THINK NOONE IS ABLE TO PUT IT IN WORDS.

Nomadic D. said...

your daughter is beautiful! (so is that leather jacket). I love the first pic, but I do sort of agree with your first instincts that the shadows are too much on the second one. She's just so pretty that it doesn't really matter though.
