Ellie Kate, by Ellie Benfield

Hey everybody!

Because we knew our subject so well, we decided Ellie could do a photoshoot of Ellie Kate alongside Daddy (that's me!). It was a fun shoot, and my Ellie did such a great job. I gave her the old backup 40D with a 50mm 1.8 lens (so she could handle it easily for a long period of time), and it totally did the trick. Here's a shot of her getting low to snag the shot (she's even rockin' the vertical!):

And here are some of hers: **note: I didn't do anything special to these or any artsy crops - she's straight up developing the eye!

Totally cute, huh?! I'm a proud Daddy!
