This clinches it for me. I was torn between the big eyes in 1 and the big smile in 2, and I was wondering which shot is really her. That makes the choice easy. You can't go wrong though. Three great shots.

We had a pro shoot our daughter around this age. Nothing nearly as good as these.

edit: Darn it, I just went back and looked again. # 1 is so sweet and innocent. Maybe one for Mom and one for Dad? ;)

I think we're on the same wavelength here mpix... I like them all for different reasons. I think they all show different sides of her character. I think #2's the one tho'... Appreciate the comments, thanks.

I'm going to go against the flow here. Number 2 is indeed a great, and fun shot, but number one for me is just precious.

Thanks KTC, as I said, that was initially my favourite out the box... still not sure! By the time I make up my mind, she'll be at school! :)

I have to agree, this look will follow her all her life.
Her eyes Rock in this one.
#1 gets my vote.

No ducks jack, but fluffy teddys, animated parents and a photographer making all sorts of noises and gestures that I don't really want to go into!! :) Thanks mate.

Photographing small children is not a job for someone who has a firm sense of their dignity.

That new crop is great! The issues I mentioned are "cropped away". I think you've found your winner.

I'm torn on 1 and 2, Jim...they're all adorable, and you'd be hard pressed to go wrong with any of them, really.

I'd second the triptych idea, myself :)
