That was a cute little experience. :) I'm a sucker for photography simulations and game mechanics anyway, so I enjoyed your game very much. The whole art style fits perfectly to your main character, the little girl, as well. Absolutely adorable. Thanks for that jam game, happily I recommended it in a little article on our blog and also uploaded a playthrough video for it. <3

Best wishes,
