Baby Pictures

Hi, I'm Candace. I just joined this awesome group yesterday and I've yet to post my self-portrait, but I wanted to go ahead and complete this challenge.

My current favorite tradition is monthly baby pictures. This picture is of my 8 month old son, Noah. He's our second child and with our first child, Emma, we did monthly pictures with her to document her monthly growth and changes, so of course, this tradition has continued with our precious new son. We have these pictures organized into great oval frames (one per child-- it documents the whole first year). These frames were the first things I purchased for each child upon learning of my new pregnancy, so they are very special to us and will always hold great meaning for our family.

I'm so excited to be a member of this group and I look forward to learning from and getting to know each of you!

CUTE LITTLE BOY!!!! Love his eyes, he's precious! That's such a cool tradition to do with your kids... being one of the last kids in the house, we didn't really get much "face time" with the camera! Very very good picture!

That boy is absolutely adorable! I'm trying to keep at that tradition, but I don't think I'm nearly as dedicated or accomplished as you. Cute picture!

Can I kiss your baby's cheeks? :) Adorable! I wish I had done better at taking pictures of my kids when they were babies.

Thanks for all these wonderful comments!

Yes, Mindy, of course you can kiss his cheeks, I know he's absolutely irresitable to the ladies! :)

I am such an amateur who feels like I know almost nothing about photography, so thanks so much, everyone for loving my picture! I'm so happy! :)
