My daughter Kanah is one of the reasons I began to take photography as seriously as I do today. When she first came home to us from China about four years ago I of course was taking pictures of her about every other minute. As the days and weeks went by I started to try to make them more than snapshots. I began trying to compose the shot and do all the little things that make a shot more artistic. I have literally taken thousands and thousands of pictures of her over the past four years. This one is my favorite so far.
