Okay my archive has been 'dry' for the past few days and that's because I haven't been putting enough time into my work... So I decided to work hard on this shot.

This is a good friend's niece, and I can't remember her name, so I've left this title-free. I haven't done children's portraits in a while even though I quite enjoy them.

For the "finicky" ones, yes I took this at f/2.8 instead of f/4. But consider the lighting conditions - they were very poor!
