Help with Words

Hi All,

I need some words and so far the thesaurus has only given me the obvious. I need positive words to describe a 13 year old girl, words that could be used to describe a pretty photograph of her. Nothing too old for a 13 year old like stunning, sexy, etc.

So far I have words like appealing, refreshing and engaging. Bright, sparkling, even beguiling.

Come on all, whatcha got?

Matt and I are brainstorming this one together. Lovely, beautiful, plain. I'd go into specifics: neat or sloppy, fair or tanned or freckled, wide-eyed or with almond-shaped eyes, smiling, scowling, or unemotional, well-dressed or tailored or trendy or bohemian. Also, I'd consider how the physical description fits the story you're telling.

Who's describing this girl? Her friends, adults? That's going to influence the words you choose.

Adults might use: cute, lovely, winning,

kids: so good!, gorgeous, amazing,

That's all I could come up with spur of the moment.

And what specifically about this girl is pretty?

Okay, I'll spill details. It isn't a writing thing really. My daughter is entering a contest where she has to send in a photo of herself and three words to describe her photo. The contest is 40% on the words, 60% the photo. Three separate individual words, not phrases.
