I had an amazing photo shoot tonight for my child portrait of the day. My co-worker’s daughter Lacy has Downs Syndrome, and she has one of the most energetic and contagious smiles. I knew when I started this challenge that I wanted to have a portrait of her as part of the “children” week.

I took over 75 photos in just a matter of minutes as she danced and explored around the field near my home. It was very hard, but I had to select just a couple to post, so I chose two from when she was discovering some of the small flowers in the field. Even though I wanted to capture her smile, and did in other frames, these two were my favorites.

I need your help deciding which of these two should be the “submission” for the day! Weigh in on your choice of this one or the next. Thanks!
