Anyway, at the party I tried to take pictures for my friend, and since she was using her point-and-shoot camera (with the flash) I decided to use my camera on manual and NOT use my flash. I hate how washed-out and one dimensional pictures can be using my big ole' on-camera flash. And I wanted to take amazing pictures for her, of the sweet and precious party she threw for her little girl.
This picture is of my princess, posing with Princess Rapunzel. I asked my girl later what she was feeling when this picture was taken. "Sad?" I'd suggested. "Mad? Nervous? Okay?" I tried to give her the right emotional vocabulary to explain to me why, in the party of her dreams, she was so blank faced most of the time. She can be such a mystery to me! Her answer to what she was feeling? "Kinda happy, Mom." Sheesh. A mystery she shall remain.
