D-205 Tea Time . . .

It's been 2 weeks since we've had Isabella here. Our schedules just haven't worked out, but we had her tonight and she's spending the night so we had time to visit sick friends, a great-grandpa who's on the mend (still in the hospital) plus we had time for a nice tea party. We enjoyed Tea by candle light with a special princess. She just warms my heart.

The Daily Shoot: "Turn the tables and make a photograph of a light source today. Light bulb, window, or even the sun (be careful!)."
Well obviously I didn't make it in time for the sun so candle light worked out just fine.

and she made all kinds of wishes before blowing out the each candle. I know she wished something about her mom but I didn't have the heart to ask her to repeat it.

and now she's sound asleep, probably dreaming about her "perfect little tea set" as she says it.

Beautiful! That candle light is wonderful for the tea set shots. Fabulous job, again!

The tea light shot was wonderful, but the image of Isabella pouring the tea was so sweet.

That was the image that said everything. Very nice. said...

Isabella playing with her princess tea set reminds me of my daughter when she was that age. She used to have similar tea set and she was really into princess stuff as well.

These shots are awesome. I like the glow on Isabella' face lit by candle lights.

Wonderful bokeh and a nice shot of the concentration of your daughter as she is pouring out the tea

The soft lighting is quite intriguing and the light on her face in the last one is beautiful
