Creativity Challenge: Up Close Portraiture

I’m back with my CMpro friends this year!

We are doing a monthly challenge and this month’s challenge is….

…well, you can read the title.


I am so excited about this project with my oh-so-talented buddies.

On the second of each month we will be linking up to share our images with you.

I had a great time photographing Emily this month.

She was happy to do it and I was elated!!

I love that little face she has.
