love your shot: link-up – favorite faces

This is my first time participating in the Love Your Shot! | Link-up. I only recently discovered the site (I must have been living in a hole) and so excited to see that Amy & Angie from i heart faces are the guest judges this time around. I’ve done a few ihf photo challenges and always love seeing the entries so this should be another great opportunity to learn & see some fab photos.

We were at my nephew’s soccer match so I was armed with my Nikon D40 and 55-200mm lens to catch him in action. Then we heard the sound of an ice cream truck coming through the park and my niece squealed with delight. I turned around and captured the shot. I love how her eyes are lit up with excitement and that little grin…*sigh* what a cutie. Often my best pictures are ones that are completely candid… unscripted… unstaged… life as it happens.
