Haley (Serious)

Yet another photo of my niece Haley, but this time it's not one of those 'all-happy-and-cutesy' types. What I enjoy about this is the serious, intense facial expressions and the close-cropped composition. I shot a number of photos up close, similar to this, and this was my favourite.

Usually when Haley realizes she is being photographed she smiles and hams it up for the camera (and not even 2 years old yet!). I was happy to catch her off-guard.
