Photo shoot with Deanna

A couple days ago when I was photographing the roses my youngest daughter Deanna wanted me to photographer her as well.  She is still at the age where she likes to be in front of the camera.  She was a real trooper during the shoot right before helping to hold the reflector and to mist the flowers.  When that was done, and before we started to tear everything down she really wanted me to take her photograph.  This shot was my favorite from the session and just looking at it makes me smile.

One thing everyone has probably noticed when trying to photograph children is when you put your eye behind the camera the expressions and poses are lost in that very fake smile and pose.  What I did to get this shot was to pull my head away from the finder and interacted with her.  It made it a little difficult because I was hoping that I didn't move the camera around and mess up the framing or the focus.  A better solution would have been to tripod mount the camera but it wasn't in the cards.  The other neat thing about this is that my wife Denise is hold a small piece of black foam core right behind her to make the background go black.
