Hi Roger,

She is a beautiful and photogenic young lady. As usuaal, your portraiture is superb. I saw some of your earlier photos of her, which were very nice as well.


Hello Roger

A really wonderful portrait of innocence.
Perfect light, perfect pov.
Amaya is so nice like a lovely doll.
Absolutly amazing result.

Happy new year 2010
All the best

And... my sincerely compliments for your clever and EXCELLENT work every day

Oh wow, this might well be my favorite of the three ... just such a photogenic, beautiful little girl. Just a great shot Roger.
(sorry to see your photo disapeer yesterday ..)

Hello Roger,

I am in awe!
This is a delightful shot!
The expression of an angel!
Her skin has a tangible softness, whilst the sharpness of her eyes and details of her hair are superb.
The b/g complements the colours on the model which makes it an intergral part of the overall shot.
Just great! What a start to the New Year!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Roger,

Elle est vraiment très photogénique comme tu le dis si bien, des yeux magnifiques et tu les as vraiment bien captés!!!
Elle aussi a de l'avenir par son sourire non figé et sa jolie petite bouille!!!
