Got Molly to stay still long enough to actually focus (manually) on her eye. The strong, but big, 'even' light really helps catch these flighty little animals

Absolutely enchanting. I would be very pleased to have a portrait like this of my own children.

Mark, beautiful one. Love the lighting and Molly is an absolute doll, look at those eyes , she looks very sweet.
The focus on the eye makes the portrait really outstanding. How old is she? I guess its going to be an avalanche of portraits for the next few weeks from the proud dads including yours truly here huh?
Well done, let's see some more. I am processing a few more of the little one, coming up soon.

Thanks for all the nice comments folks!
It holds a special place for me but I just assumed that was because it was Molly. Nice to know that as a portrait it works for other people too.
