Dance like nobody is watching...

That is what children do. I adore that about them and wish it could stay with all of us when we grow up, and for those who never lose their inhibitions, I am envious. I love to dance, and I love how music moves us to get up and dance. It is an amazing human trait.

I heart faces' challenge this week is "I Wanna Dance". I adore this image of Meghan. Her sweet expression and that amazing movement of her dress is beautiful, not to mention, her parents looking on in the back ground is so tender. Watching your child get lost in a moment is as much a part of parenthood as carefree dancing is a part of childhood.

This little girl was such a joy to shoot - she just beamed at me from the moment we met and was full of glee. I think this image captures all of her zest for life, especially when given the chance to dance.

Please head over to i heart faces to see what other images have been submitted this week or better yet, enter a dancing shot of your own - it is a fun community for all photographic levels to enjoy.


  1. Wow. This is amazing. The light, the colors, the little girl. Great job!

  2. Love the moment you captured! And I really love the parents looking on in the background.

  3. So pretty! I love that you can tell the parent's are so proud by their smiles. What a creative beautiful shot!

  4. This is an amazing shot. I adore it. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I love the creativity of this shot--and the colors are gorgeous, too. Great capture of the little girl's personality.

  6. OH this is so PRETTY!!! I love the blues and pinks... and it truly looks as though she didn't have a care in the world (or care that you were watching :-))! I'm jealous of that swinging skirt... wonderful job!!


I'd love it if you left me a note!
