just making sure here. You don't mean a blood-sucking leech on sting's little girl to make her anemic and passive, but a leash as a metaphor to keep an eye out for her? Sorry, couldn't resist..lol.
Gave me an excuse to chime in - you have an extraordinarily beautiful little girl sting and if you parent at the same level you do portraits of her, there will be no need for leashes - but perhaps a warning "World Beware!" lol.
This second shot is excellent and shows her beauty in a very natural way - very well done!
