Spring-themed garden portrait of three-year-old Amelie

Natural light, a few daffodils and a slightly reluctant toddler were all it took to get this spring-time portrait.

I’m no fan of daffodils but I do admit they lend a spring-time feel to portraits. Of course, as garden flowers tend to be just a foot or two from the floor, you need to get low down in order to include them in the frame, as I did here.
