In Edmonton, I didn’t have to look far to locate a tree-climbing princess.

Absolutely beautiful. I love how the background sparkles and her dress is luminous.

Magical ๐Ÿ™‚

Very clever contrast to have her climbing in that pretty dress. She looks lovely.

OK, you’re going to get bored of me always saying the same thing, but your photos are just SO AMAZING!!!! LOVE THEM!!! The second photo is especially awesome — the lighting and the softness of the background against the sharpness of the dress…. just stunning!!

Good to hear you enjoyed my trulli post. Aren’t they the coolest houses?! And the interiors are totally unexpected ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful portraits, awesome lighting. Dang, I wish I had a dress like that!

Your photographs of this beautiful little girl are fantastic. She looks like a wee woodland sprite full of life and merry mischief. I love that you photographed her in the tree. Both photos make me think of Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night Dream.

The top photo is stunning. Your usage of the light was excellent. I like the way you kept the exposure on her face perfect.

Wonderful sweet images of such a sweet little girl. Love the sense of nostalgia and romance…and the light as it filtered thru her white dress.
