Yesterday my 'little girl' (of 12!) attended her Grade 7 dance.
That's the last year of 'Junior School' here (she is actually a
year young for her class as she started school early as we were
living in Zimbabwe at the time, where we start them younger!)
I don't get to use my 50mm portrait lens often enough so I snapped
it on & headed into the garden with her at 5.30pm, just before she
left - a perfect time to shoot on a Summer's evening in Durban :)
She has poker straight hair but it was in need of a trim
so we got the hairdresser to curl her hair at the same time.
As soon as Summer comes & she spends her afternoons at the
pool her hair lightens up to a gorgeous golden blonde.
She chose her own dress & paid for it herself with her Christmas
money from her Granny. She looked a million bucks I think!
They had a lovely time! Aaaah I can't believe that next year
I'll have FOUR teenagers & all my kids will be at High School!!
