This child is a NUT, and she only agreed to let me take pictures of her if I would take a few "serious" shots of her first. What? She's 5. Is this normal? Nevermind, I'm pretty sure I know the answer to that.

I just love this....
And this is maybe my new favorite picture of her. I love the light behind her head, the look on her face, the pretty green background. I love it....
I even like the black and white of it:
