Yet another from HB’s birthday party last weekend. HB has 3 particular little friends from her nursery, and Maya makes up the trio of friends. She is the sweetest little girl, and although I have talked about how nice it is to be greeted with their big smiles, Maya was the little angel who actually exclaimed with pleasure when she realised who the photographer was! I just love her earnest and open expression here!
I made a (excusable in the circumstances I hope) blunder in that I photographed little Maya with a particularly strongly patterned bag behind her head. It is also a strongly coloured bag and between both elements I confess they distracted from Maya’s face. Reducing the bag clarity with a local adjustment brush and converting to black and white really reduces the problem.
