I heart faces...Viewer's Choice

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is Viewer's Choice. It is fun to participate in this theme, because everyone gets a vote. I love taking portraits of Paige and this one is my newest favorite. We were out and about shooting at different locations and while we were sitting and pondering where to go next, I called her name and she looked up at me and I snapped. This is what I got and I love it and love her! Moments with my girl, posed or not, are what memories are made of. 10 I (heart) her to the core! I_Heart_Faces_Photography_125

Girl with many faces

So, I generally post posed, edited, serious pics of Paige. While I love those, that is only one teeny tiny side to her personality. She is suuuch a trip! She talks nonstop and is a clown...clown, I tell you! Here are some favorite memories as of late:

  • She still calls things "ImportNant". She doesn't realize that she is making a mistake and who am I to tell her? It's CUTE!

  • Last night she told me that she only wants to adopt and wants boys. Girls are TOO much trouble. haha

  • She has a boyfriend and talks about him nonstop. Tonight they are going in a big group to the movies. Remember my last post where I said "a simple hello in the hallway?" Yeah, not so much! Good news is that five of us adults are going to the movie, too, and are sitting ohhhh about two rows behind them :)

  • She is a tomboy to the core. She dislikes all things pink, girly, fru fru, or prissy.

  • Her friends all wear make up. Paige, no, she wears a little foundation on blemishes and chapstick... atta girl :)

  • She loves modern and hip hop, but detests and I do mean DETESTS ballet. She is only sticking with ballet because that is a required class in order to take modern (her love) and jazz.

  • Little sister can move like nothing I've ever seen. She has gained confidence this year and others are noticing. I am proud of her.

  • She spends way too much time on her ipod touch. She loves the game, "Angry Birds".

  • Her favorite food is ramon least she'll be content in college, right?

  • She'd prefer boyfriend cut jeans, an Abercr@mbie tshirt, and sperrys any day.

  • Her ears are pierced, but she doesn't wear earrings.

  • She pulls the skin off of her thumbs. They look like she was in a fire. She does it while she sleeps. It concerns me.

  • Her voice is getting deeper and she is sounding and acting more and more like a teenager. Stays up late and wakes late as well :/

  • She likes to get to school at 7 a.m., even though it doesn't begin until 7:30. She goes to talk to her friends.

  • She is one of two sixth graders who are in the Cougars Don't Do Drugs club and doesn't care if it's not "cool". She went and competed with other schools last weekend and had a blast.

  • She wants to be a basketball player sooooo badly! She walks, talks, swaggers, dresses, looks like and moves like a "baller", but the child can't make a basket to save her life. She is short and that bothers her.

  • She is looking forward to running cross country for her school next year and continue on with dance.

  • She asked me to buy her a purity ring for Easter! She said she didn't want to "kiss" until she gets married.....PRECIOUS~!

Here are some straight out of the camera pics of my girl! Love her!
