GIRL POWER [Austin Child Photographer]

As a child, I was the consummate tomboy. So it often surprises me how much my daughter embraces anything and everything that screams, “GIRL!” Pink is good. Frilly is better. Sparkles are awesome. All three together? You have made a friend for life.

One of her favorite activities is Spa Day. This was introduced when her older brother went on his first sleepover and she was devastated that he was gone. We gave each other mani-pedis and applied face masks. It was a major success and mitigated all sadness from her brother’s absence. Now she asks for Spa Day at least once a week.

A recent discovery of hair rollers, I purchased for a costume, has sent the game into the BEST GAME EVER category. I don’t know how I’m going to top it.

    LOVE IT!!!! Those photos are just too awesome for words (and will definitely reappear years from now for her wedding, I’m betting 🙂 I’ll send my daughter over and the two can fix each other up while you and I go climb a tree or something. Oh and next . . . foot scrubs.

      Thank you Karyl!

      Hmmm… good question. I am still really happy with my D700. It is an amazing camera. Though, I have been watching the D800 too and it looks very promising. The silent shutter mode is an intriguing feature, if it works the way I imagine, it would be really nice during those quiet moments at births. How about you? What are you shooting with these days?
