We Picture {This} (Mamarazzi) Hats

Nikon D300, f/10, exposure time 1/400 sec., ISO - 200, focal length 105 mm

This is Dahlia, my little girl who made me a Mommy more than four years ago. I celebrate this everyday. I am endlessly fascinated by her growing personality and character. She is so courageous yet oh so tender. Blissfully joyful and yet an old soul where waters run deep. Each day I see little flickers of who she may become and I'm honored to be the one she calls Mom.

These two photos were taken within minutes of each other and speak volumes about the many sides of my wonderful Dahlia.

Don't forget to hop over to the mamarazzi site to see all the other "hat" entries this month.

I love the contrast between the two photos. She's definately a "hat" girl! Gwen is like that but Maddy (usually) isn't. Me? I can't wear a hat at all! I look like a dork!

These are both beautiful. And those hats are something else! Great job capturing a few of the many facets of her little personality. :)

HI Wanda,

Dahlia is so great! You can see the girl she is and glimpses of who she will be, you are so right!
Her name suits her perfectly! Love your tribute to your Mom, too!
