The shoulder still isn't strong enough for me to go on my usual walks with my camera, which is (still) why I'm not posting much.

This is my daughter, Hayley, and her boyfriend, Joe. My sister bought Hayley some school clothes while she was here, and she wanted some pictures of Hayley wearing them. Since I DO have a camera, I can't bring myself to fork out money in order to pay someone else to take school pictures. So this little photo shoot serves as a double purpose. I will eventually take a few of the shots I took today and print up some little photo packages for friends and family - just like the school pictures, but much cheaper!

I like it! Great shot! Natural and fun!

@Magda: Thanks, Magda. It helps to get a somewhat natural look when both my daughter and her boyfriend have acting experience. I've noticed lately, though, that - as teens - they try too hard to pose, which sometimes results in not-so-natural shots. I liked it better when they (my daughter in particular) just did "whatever" with the posing.
