Inspired by Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Babies
Super cute, super funny, super whatever, human, animal, or whatever, we want to see your babies!
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES BABIES.
I don’t need much inspiring when it comes to baby pictures. And there’s no way I can limit this post to three photos. Be warned.
I have always believed that babies are the most fascinating subjects for photography. They are just…who they are. Their faces…their expressions…. Transparent. Open.
Happy. Sad. Tired. Bored. Sleepy. Curious….the list is endless.
Choosing just a few family photos for this challenge was…challenging! They were all taken with a Canon 35mm (film) camera – except for the last one which was with an iPhone.
When my kids were babies, I took a weekly photo during their first year. I think they got used to it…all I know is I got some interesting glimpses into their personalities.
For instance, my 10 month old son first thought it was hilarious…then not so sure……then I’m outta here.
My daughter loved getting her picture taken anytime, anywhere.
Although easily distracted by rug or blanket fibers…
…which soon became an afternoon snack…fine motor skills already well developed.
When my grandson was 10 months old, he enjoyed his first tour in a shopping cart up and down the toy aisle with Grampa and me…
…clearly amazed at the experience.
