**************************
alex of course - 13 months

this may be my holiday card this year. :nod: he's getting harder and harder to photograph b/c he's wanting to be so independent and challenging. :| i had him with a giant red candy cane stick but once he threw it on the tile floor and saw how it broke, he found it much more fun to throw it and break it on the floor than put it in his mouth. :shrug: :| :lol: but he lets me get a little here and there. ;)

he's got such a sweet baby face profile still :aww: in no time he'll lose the look of "baby" altogether :cries: so i'm happy to get a sweet :aww: baby like image this year. :floating: and the hat was perfect. :D

i'll post the original image in scraps tomorrow night - i cropped this for a compostion for a card i'd like. i also might post a black and white (not this image but from this shoot) we're considering too.

:blowkiss:

He's adorable! You can tell he's such a sweetheart, even without the full view on his face.
It's hard to believe 13 months has already passed since he was born!
I wouldn't know what it's like trying to get babies or children to pose for photographs but I can imagine it can be quite difficult at times with their focus and attention constantly jumping. But lovely work Mary, this would make a sweet holiday card! :heart:

you learn to work with the child like you would a cat or dog - you can't control them very much so you do your best to distract them in the setting you want with the props you want and then just start shooting with little expectations. :shrug: sometimes you get lucky ;)

any time we try to get our three-year old to pose, she says cheese and smiles and squints! Argh! In order to get a good shot, we have to get her doing something spontaneous, it seems.

This IS an adorable shot. I really like it because you can't see the face, which would be a typical baby portrait. There is something so much more tender about this because he is looking down. Great capture! =D

that would be a nice feeling...we've never thought about using our kids to get card photos before. That might be some fun. Thanks for the inspiration. =D

Aww, very sweet...and I know your frustration of trying to pose babies for photos. My 11 month old just won't sit still, and when he does look at the camera he has the open mouthed 'catching flies look' :lmao:
You must be excited this year, with him finally being able to get into christmas this year :nod:
