I Heart Faces: “Over My Head”
It’s been a while since I’ve participated in an I Heart Faces weekly photo challenge… and I know I just shared this photo in as part of my Scavenger Hunt Sunday items, but this week’s theme is “Over My Head,” and it’s so appropriate and current. This photo is also perfectly appropriate for The Paper Mama‘s challenge this week: action! With that said, I’m happy to re-post this picture.

My husband now tells me that my niece is wearing her mother’s shirt from when they were children (my husband’s family has been going to the same beach for close to 30 years). We were throwing a ball back and forth when she started to get silly and threw the ball straight up – I encouraged her to keep doing it so I could grab my camera.  So, in this case, although you can’t see it, there is a ball over her head! I love her beautiful ringlet curls…as a girl with straight hair, I’m seriously jealous!

By the way, if you’re visiting my blog for the first time – Welcome! I hope you’ll stay awhile , look around a bit and enjoy yourself. Have a great day!


    I love this photo! I was just thinking that this also could work for “happy”, then scrolled down and saw that, silly me, you had used it for happy!

    And, as a girl with naturally curly hair – I’d give anything to have straight. Don’t know what I’d do without my CHI!

    So sweet!

    cute shot! And I’m so looking forward to the photowalk this weekend.

    cute expression on the sweet little girl’s face!

    I love her happy expression!

    Cute! I love her expression as well! PURE JOY!

    Such joy in her expression!! nice shot!

    Love her expression!! I have really enjoyed your vacation photos thus far…and a little jealous! Hope you had a great time!

    Cute! And love her curls!

    She is the cutest thing!

    great capture for sure!

    I love her curly hair!

    I love photo blogs. Your’s is great. I can’t wait to see more.
    Found you on Southern Reflections MGM.

    she looks like she is having so much fun!

    This photo is so cute. My sister has lovely curly hair, while mine is VERY straight. I’m jealous.

    Love those beautiful ringlets and gorgeous color. That’s sweet that she is wearing her mom’s shirt :)

    great photo for over my head…love the story behind it :) her hair is seriously beautiful!

    what a beauty, i love the expression on her face.

    You GO with your button! GREAT job! That’s awesome. That seems totally like your personality…you’re not going to give up until you figure something out – I love it! :-) Me…I’ll try for a half hour and then I’m like “that’s it!!!” Good job, it looks awesome! I would LOVE to do your scavenger hunts (probably one of the most interesting blog hops around)…but I’m reeeeeally trying to watch my time on the computer and taking pictures in general. 3 weeks until school starts…I can’t believe it. I’m going to be so sad when my boys are gone, and I want them to remember me being “present.” KWIM? Happy Monday! :-)

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! And thank you even more for following–let me return the favor. Who doesn’t love followers? Have a lovely day, lovely lady! :-)


    She’s a little doll! I love her curly hair too! My step-son had hair like that, we were all jealous of it. :) Fun shot!

    I love the action-blur and the total anticipation expression of joy …

    What a cutie! Thanks for sharing this great pic!
    I am a new follower from Meet&Greet Monday, so glad to have found your blog. Hope you have a wonderful evening!


    I’m coming over from Inspiring you 2 save and am going to sign myself as a follower. I love the photos! I take my camera everywhere I go and have so much to learn. I think I could learn a thing or two from you!


    This is a great photo. I love the motion feel. And that expression is perfect. And what a great photo for her Mom, talk about hand-me-downs! I love it all!

    Insanely jealous of the curls myself. Never had one single wave in my hair. She looks so happy!

    Oh & forgot to say that I just got the blog a few weeks ago. I still am trying to make time every morning to post; I didn’t realize a blog was so much work! I’m glad your following, that way I make sure to keep up on it because I have important people to impress. Your blog was a huge inspiration to me, so I also wanted to say thank you. :)

    Have I said how adorable she is? ;)

    Love the curls. She looks so bouncy – in motion, and in personality. :D

    my hair is bone straight too, and I always wanted a little girl with curly hair. Well now I am getting one, and let me tell, it is not easy to tame. I may be eating my words in a few years.

    She is so adorable. I LOVE naturally curly hair (mine is) and I’m so jealous of her beautiful locks. What a great capture! I love it when children look like they’re being children in photographs! (As opposed to sitting and smiling fakely at the camera.)

    This is a precious shot! Funny about the shirt too and love that hair!
