I heart faces - creative crop

I've been meaning to enter a photo for the I Heart Faces contest, but didn't get around to it until now. This week I'm entering their Creative Crop category with one of my favorite shots from Henry's 9 month session (He was the young piano player from a few days ago) You can click here to get more information on this fun contest and see other entries.

I often will include 'bits & pieces' of parents in my children's portraits for a couple of reasons:
1) mom and dad are usually the ones behind the camera so any photo with them in it is a treat
2) you can see just how small the kids are when you use adult legs to frame the child.

Henry's grandma made him this BamBam costume for Halloween. Don't ya just love that little smirk on his face?

How cute! That's a great idea for a creative crop - and for adding interest to a kid's picture.

I did this for the first time this week too. My friend Melissa does it sometimes and I kept saying to myself that I wanted to do it. We've beena bit distracted lately, but today I was looking through photos anyway...so I quick did some editing in Storybook and wah-la! I had an entry. You (of course) have a great picture!

Hi! I found your blog through MckMama's blog forum. You suggested a blog layout to her that had the sidebar links up top. I clicked on that link and I have been looking everywhere for how to change my layout to look like that. Do you know how or can you point me towards someone who does? That was exactly what I've been looking for!

That is SO cute! There are so many entries now that it's impossible to see them all; glad you got a top ten finish so I could see this one. I know the parents LOVED it! Congrats...

This is such a beautiful photo.

Wow....how exciting.....winning with your first entry! Bam Bam did a bang up job in the photo. So cute! His grandma is so talented. She deserves an applause too! BTW....please join me for Scenic Sundays - a photography meme I created. It focuses more on the beautiful places rather than the beautiful faces. Hope to see you there!
