    A series of portraits of my daughter in the pool. She loves spending hours in water, whether it is the ocean, lake, pool or bathtub. This summer her dad and I have tried to show her how to float and completely relax on the water surface. And since she's been swimming in her fancy dress again, I decided to use some hydrangea petals to capture her floating attempts.

    I love Your Shot photographer Elizabeth Paoletti's comment: "[T]his is my favorite of the series. I love your use of diagonal lines. I see them in your daughter's position in the water, the water reflections and all the gorgeous flowers. I also like that it's all color coordinated and that she's not making eye contact with the camera. She looks so serene, in her own world. I have been following you for so long now that I see such growth in your daughter. She's growing up before our eyes :)"
