11 months and counting. (And P52)

Insert the tears here. Time flies and we’re along for the ride.

I took these of Miss E last week. These are two of my favourites. I feel like I still need to master white balance. But I know I’m learning. I tackled colour casts this week, and I’m getting better at evening skin tone and a few other things. And contrast. My nemesis.

What to do when your model doesn’t cooperate?

It’s happened. Miss E reached the age where she wants nothing to do with sitting still because the world around her is full of amazing, interesting things. Like electrical cords, door stoppers, and anything that moves.

I got her dressed and then sat her down with a “high interest” toy – her stuffed lamb. Who she loves. Then I put her sticker on. It lasted all of 8 seconds. Even with me peeling her hand away while singing and dancing and making stupid noises to distract her. Then she ate it. Then I chased her around the room (score mommy for having the door closed!) while she completely ignored me.

I posted a few on FB. Here is what most of the rest looked like. (Feel free to leave your tips in comments.)








In good news – she’s getting visible hair! Woot woot!
