Franny is like a breath of innocence and wisdom all wrapped up in a bundle of serious cuteness!  She was shy at first about having me take pictures of her, but once she saw herself in my camera, she was totally into it.  Yay for digital cameras!!  I am so completely in my element when I'm able to photograph children.  There is just something about them that makes my job both simple and delightful.  I think it's because children know how to just be.  They're comfortable in their own skin and are not afraid of expressing themselves.  To me this creates natural, authentic images.  A single glance can say more than what words will ever have the chance to say.
