I heart faces: best face 2010

Ridiculously difficult choice to make! Ultimately I chose this photo because I don't know that I will ever capture another picture of Mira that is this relaxed and genuine. Mira has autism and in most photographs she's looking away or noticeably tense. I wouldn't wish my child to be different then she is  but I wish I could help her feel this at ease with the world every day.

Beautiful! I can see why it's a favorite, in more ways then one! The light is amazing too; so warm and I love the sun flare.

Not only is this a beautiful picture, but I was so glad you mentioned her autism. That makes it even more impressive!
