All About Babies

Speaking of Babies...

This weeks photo challenge for the website I HEART FACES is "All About Babies!!"

So I dug into my archive and pulled out my favorite baby picture. The story behind it goes something like this:

I was 9 months pregnant and researching baby photographers online to find that ONE that I wanted to take pictures of my new baby. And low and behold, I found her. I was in love with her work. I even contacted her regarding the potential newborn session.

Then our beautiful baby Brady was born. It was then.. at that moment... the husband and father of our bundle of joy, chooses to break the news to me. He proceeds to tell me that he bought me this nice, fancy, expensive camera for Christmas so that I could take my own pictures.

My heart was crushed.

Wow!! I am not a professional photographer. How was I going to get those adorable, once in a lifetime shots?? The pressure was on...

But I attempted.

And this is what I got.


  1. You did a great job for a first attempt! He's so cute!

  2. so cute! I had to comment because your photo is SO similar to mine!! even down to the blanket he's laying on!

  3. Beautiful sepia in this photo!

  4. Great story and a beutiful picture! The baby is extra beautiful too. We mommies are so blessed ,huh? Soundsl ike you got a good hubby too! ;)

  5. I think you did a great job! Hopefully your photos mean more to you because they are your own and you captured everything about them. It's not just having a great camera, you have a good eye.
