With the OI image going viral the subject seems to keep coming up about my daughters well being/self esteem.
Those few of you who do follow my work know her well, have seen her grow up and grow into a hugely self confident, well balanced wee lady with a strong mind of her own and pretty damned snazzy acting skills.
You will know that she is a decent little actress, her ability to emote for camera wasn't just something I picked up on, its a deep love from her, one that's taken her not only into acting but also into film and photography clubs in her own right and she is just now beginning her first photography portfolio.
This isnt something I 'use' my daughter for, this is something we work on together, shes full of her own ideas and concepts and when asked to 'play a part' throws herself into it with gusto and the amount of extra fun and 'us' time we have had is priceless..
She is massively proud of the work shes done..don't try taking that away from her by underestimating her..
