I Heart Faces: Best Face Week






This image was taken on December 18th, 2009 during a rare South Carolina snow.
Canon Rebel Xti, 50mm lens, f/2.5, 1/400, ISO 800


When searching through my recent picture files from January 2010 and December 2009, this image kept standing out to me. I know, since I'm a mom, that all pictures of my children are beautiful in some way. But there is just something about this image that strikes a chord in my heart every time I see it. So I picked this photo as my entry for the week.

  1. Jaina's so beautiful in this photo (as she is in pretty much all her photos)! I love how natural she looks... with wisps of her hair across her face. :) Great capture.
