This is my first entry to Tara Cain’s Gallery and yes, I’ve cheated already. I didn’t take the photo myself. When Madame was 15 months old I arranged to have some photos taken of her as a gift for her Grandmother’s 60th birthday. We really weren’t in a position to afford it, as hubby had just gone back to work after being off for over a year, but I’m so glad I pulled out the credit cards as we now have some great photos. I’m not a fan of ‘stiff, hands-folded in lap’ studio photos so arranged to have a local photographer meet us at the park. She followed Madame around for and hour catching candid photos.
It was hard to choose just one but I love this one as I think it shows just how much her dad adores her!

I love the look on his face. And what a good idea to have someone "lurking" to catch the perfect moments. I like it! ;)
as long as no one else was lurking taking photos! Eeek! ;-)
She really did capture some great ones.

Nothing like a daddy's love for his little girl. I can see why you think this one is so special xx
What a beautiful photo! What a great idea to get a professional photographer to go to a park, much better than in a stuffy studio!
