Favorite Photo of the week.. {i think?}

One of my favorite things about snapping pics of my sweet boy is...
when I  capture just an ounce of this little monkey's character, & his silly... one of a kind Jaxy personality.
Plus when those eyes smile... (sigh)... I'm done!


I experimented w/ Ashley Sarah's Tutorial Tuesday Post, (just a tad late)
 Low Key Photography.
I sat Jax in the dark kitchen, on top of the kitchen table, just using very low light from the adjacent glass door. (Wow. that was a mouthful!)

His eyes are hypnotizing! Seriously the most beautiful shade of blue I've ever seen in my life. Gorgeous shots, per usual. His tongue sticking out is so adorable.

BTW, I kinda sorta really love you girl! You're so sweet and such an awesome photographer. I made the video on my page myself. :) I'm glad you liked it.
