I've learned now by photographing other people that they are never going to pick the photos that you think they will. Like this one. If you didn't know that when he concentrates (like on buckling his swing) he juts out his bottom jaw like this, you might not understand why I like it so much.
The focus if off on this one, but I like it anyway too. This is such a genuine smile.
Showing me how old he is.
Cute, sweet, precious little face and dirty knees...love it.
He always makes this face. He's thinking about doing something "full of meanness". I can tell.
I've been accused recently of "editing people's eyes to make them look more blue" but I never edit eyes. It's sort of a pet peeve of mine. Sometimes you catch the right light with the right reflection (from say a blue sky, like here), add that to a nice blue shirt and they just pop. But I don't ever want my kids eyes or anyone else's to look fake. My kids really do have eyes like this in this light. And I hate that she is wearing a hot pink bow with that shirt...but there I go nitpicking with the wardrobe again. Let it go, Shawna, let it go... Other than that, I adore this picture and it's my new desktop background.
A beautiful tree in my neighbor's yard that I've never noticed before. I love how the camera can make the ordinary stand out when you look through it.
Look, God put bokeh on the side of my house for me. Had to snap a shot of it. Beautiful light that I would not have ever appreciated a few years ago.
Eyelash shot of my girl. I love her dark lashes so much.
I think this might be my favorite. I love that you can see his dimple!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
