Seeing this lovely portrait, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the photographer is from Dublin – tho’ in fact there’s only one other shot of a freckly redhead in her portfolio (and it’s the same girl):

The photographer’s name is Greta Do, and she’s a remaining Flickr stalwart – under the name of Memorybeans (like her photography business). She has two daughters – here they all are, minus car wash-owning Lithuanian husband Vytautas:

One daughter has just taken up Irish Dance, leading to these two lovely portraits – both entitled Jigs and Reels:

…….and on Facebook Greta adds:

I never thought that I would think that there might be anything close to ballet with grace and beauty. But I do…I do I do I do…… My lovely girl…Jigs….and…Reels..” (Facebook: see image-link below)

…….here’s a closer look at those unique shoes – this style apparently called “pomps”:

……and sneakily I introduced her (unnamed) daughters above, so you have the same chance as me at distinguishing them from her clients:

…..as you can see, a wonderful fine-art vision rather wasted on babies and weddings – this is what she says about the last portrait:

They say my girls are very alike…. my girls with their father’s eyes…. I know every line…every dot…every wiggle..” (Facebook)

Lucky guy…..it must make every rainy Dublin day when no-one wants their car washed that much happier……
