One of the reasons I was itching to get my hands on a better camera this time last year was so that I could take Christmas-y pictures of Jayce. My other camera literally would not let me do what I wanted, since it couldn’t focus unless I was 3+ feet away, and not using a flash with a wiggly 7 month old made for super blurry shots. But this year I have my camera, have been learning about it for almost a year now, and sometimes my pictures look like this.
Sometimes I get the lighting and the softness perfectly.
And sometimes I catch the personality, curiosity, and cheek plumpness dead on.
Merry Christmas from our little model, who ate more glitter while I was taking these photos than I care to admit.
