Default Puppy breath....

My wife is always asking why I don't take her pictures.....I do, but then she picks it apart to the point of no fun. Its not my lack of skills that get hammered, no, but what she thinks of herself. I'd love for her to just sit, and listen, as I try to capture her, but no, I guess candids are it, which really is hard for me to get right when the target is moving about and I have PS lag, arg!
Took this downstairs in her studio, where lighting is non existent (unless you're on her work station). I had one stupid light bulb overhead, no flash, and hand held to work with. I'm happy with the shot, I think it has a puppy softness about it, but she thinks not. What do you guys think?????

I feel yer pain on this one. I have VERY few pictures of my wife.

I like it. Works well with the b&w treatment, and the puppy element does the trick.

Ditto here! I always get the hands-over-face or quick head-snap. Even though she tells everyone within earshot how proud she is of my photography. Women... go figger.
