This past spring, I had the privilege of attending a photography workshop hosted by the lovely Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography.  Since then, I’ve also had the privilege of connecting with some pretty incredible photographers through Michele’s online photography community.  A few of us decided we’d like to try six months of themed shoots, each working from the same theme idea, and sharing the resulting images in a blog “circle”.  I was having quite a bit of trouble coming up with an idea for “Perfectly Imperfect” – until my daughter ran face-first into a door that was opening from the outside.  So off we went to capture that big black eye in all its glory!

But of course, in keeping with the theme, once we got out there the bugs, heat and “itchies” were pretty distracting…

However, the promise of an Icee when we were through helped her perk up a bit…

And to wrap it up…this face, whether laughing, crying, bruised or perfectly unblemished, never fails to melt my heart…

And last, my fave from the afternoon:
