Uh, didn’t I talk about avoiding border mergers before? Gasp! I cut off her head! Well, sometimes, for artistic reasons, it’s ok. But keep in mind the old adage, you have to know the rules to break them. I actually shot this as-is, without cropping. Focusing on her hands holding onto the keys with just her open-mouth-expression clearly told a story. “Uh Oh! Am I not supposed to play with these?” So today, I broke some rules and feel pretty good about it! Do you have any photos to share where you broke a rule and it still worked?

I must be one of those laid back moms. I like let her ‘explore’ as much as possible.
