A boy and his lights...

This was the first Christmas that Mason was able to 'help' decorate (and subsequently UN-decorate) our Christmas tree. After I spent some good 'quality' time untangling the lights, Mason promptly jumped right into them and tied them all back up again!Lucky for me, I had my camera and tripod standing close by and I was able to work on my LOW light / fast child photography. That's a tricky little buggar!



I am just in love with the above photo.

What beautiful photos. I do have a question...how do you get a little one to sit still long enough to take such amazing shots?

Crystalyn Thorsen said...

Oh he is sooooo sweet!! That middle photo is amazing! The first one... gosh that could be Trevor looking at me, he has that same look. And I love how he curls his toes... again reminds me of another little bubba that I know of.

Love that 2nd photo! Amazing!!

Did you use a tripod here? The lighting and composition are awesome.. it looks like you have a tiny little bit of motion blur. I did these a few years ago with my daughter and found that cutting out the camera shake with my tripod helped eliminte most of it.

Great shots.

All of these pictures are amazing, but the one of just the hand is EXCEPTIONAL!!!! That one looks like a photo for an ad!!! Beautiful tree/ornament pictures too!! I tried hard to get some shots like that, but as you have seen, my tree has been violated by three little girls. It's just not pretty anymore.

Just beautiful!!! You are such a pro with your camera now!! Keep up the great work!!!
