When looking through my photos for inspiration as to shooting bright, I noticed that my brightest photos were of my daughter. I generally dress her with as much color as I can put together "without looking like a Christmas tree" (as Veronika once said of my own clothing choices). These photos were all taken this week, on various outings around our neighborhood, and Genevieve was usually more than happy to pose. The last photo was taken on my last attempted shoot, by which time Genevieve had gotten tired of standing against walls; she wouldn't stay put for one second. Here she is running toward me brightly, lips puckered, hoping for a kiss.
