I ♥ Faces~ Let's Hear It for the BOYS!



This week over at, I ♥ Faces, they are celebrating the BOYS.

For the Child's Category, I'm sharing a photo I took for a friend's newborn boy back in 2007. Sigh....I rarely get the opportunity to capture newborns....and almost just as rarely do I get to photograph boys. I was so honored to photograph such a precious time for my friend.

For the Adult Category, I'm choosing a photo from a session I did with one of my friend's son. He was a willing subject, and we had GREAT things in mind, but time, weather, and illness kept us from accomplishing our pre-conceived plan. This is one of my favorite close-ups of the day though. he has VERY expressive eyebrows. I look forward to another day of shooting with him sometime soon.

New born babies are so precious! My word, your friend's son has very expressive eyes too! Wonder what goes on inside that young head? It's special to be young and starting out isn't it?
You have a great week too!

nothing beats a newborn's pictures...

I wish that I had such beautiful photographs of my children. The newborn shot is to die for. I have "acceptable" at best. Of course, I am to blame, I could take the time to learn, but don't. I wish you were here taking the photos for me! :) And, well, to just visit.

I love the photo of the baby - just so stunning. The photo in the adults category is also gorgeous, clear, vibrant and he looks so thoughtdul.

The one of the baby's just too cute! Look at that cute little mouth. Don't you just want to kiss him all over!

Lori said...

You are right he does have expressive eyebrows. Great photos.

Michelle said...

wonderful shots!

Beth@Pages of Our Life said...

That baby looks like he is posing for you. : ) I'm sure the mom was thrilled about that picture. Both are wonderful.

Mommy Rachelle said...

I like the adult entry. Teens and "new adults" are such interesting creatures. It's so hard to get them at ease so you can get the great shot that doesn't say "cheese". Nice.

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

The light in the baby's eyes is perfect. Now, if you happen to be in Seattle in about 6 weeks, there will be another newborn in town...and a boy at that!

drewmark19 said...

Both of your friends must have been so happy with the pictures from those photo shoots. I adore baby photography. Now that I've learned a bit more about photography, I really want to try my hand at photographing newborns. There's a couple new parents or soon to be new parents at church. I haven't gotten up the nerve yet to ask them if I could practice on their babies. :)

Joye @ The Joyeful Journey said...

What a precious newborn! His eyes are so clear--I love how sharp this photo looks--wow! Great job!

Perfect baby shot! He really is a cutie-pie!
