Almost 6


My little sister Meiling is almost six.  Her birthday is next week.  Today I dressed her up, and we went outside and took pictures.  There were plenty of flowers – some on bushes to use as a backdrop, and some to pick.  We had fun!

This was my first time doing portraits with props.  We collected some different items – some that Meiling liked or that matched her outfit – and threw them in a big plastic bag so they wouldn’t get dirty.  I carried that around while we were taking pictures.

The wind was blowing, and Meiling was joking that she would let go of her parasol

“Tut, tut, it looks like rain!”
