Click...CLICK!!


Last week I got one sweet surprise in the mail.
My sweet sweet Bestie (you know who you are hot stuff) sent me this GEM.
I've been shooting in manual for the past month... doing ok... but still a LOT bit frustrated.
Praise the good Lord... HALLELUJAH.... it all just clicked after giving it a good read!
Thanks to my lovely friend, Love you like crazy hon. xo
THIS sweet face is the reason I fell in love w/ photography.
My new favorite Jaxy picture.
I'm so thankful I get to kiss those plump lil cheeks every single day,
 & turn into a big pile of mush, from those baby blues.
Good thing you're so cute Jaxy, cause boy, you sure are one naughty curious lil monkey!

Love the shot- isn't shooting in manual so liberating?!! Once I turned that dial to M it's never gone back.

Mona's Picturesque said...

Okay,I'm in love with your Jaxy ♥ Can't get any cuter!

Jaymi said...

oh wow, I love both of these versions! I think normally I prefer your color versions because I love seeing Jaxy's BLUE eyes, but something about his expression in this shot makes me really love it in black and white!

Desirae R said...

Oh my goodness look at those eyes! I am so jealous!

Mallory said...

Wow- I love it! I need to get the manual because I have been having the worst time shooting in manual. I felt like I got really good for awhile and now I think I suck and have been shooting in auto and P way too often.

Mallory said...

Shit I just saw that it was $95- boo!

Susan said...

WOW!!! Nice one mama :)

Cropped Stories said...

Always love his eyes -- amazing. :)

Sarah said...

Those eyes! Sigh. Good luck with the manual. I've seen that one--looks perfect!!

Not So Super Scottish Mummy said...

Lovely blue eyes. I've got two pairs of them in my house too. Each pair a slightly different shade but both beautiful. They are both framed with beautiful eyelashes better than any falsies I've ever seen!

Ulina / Apricot Bubbles said...

Great portrait!
I like the coloured version best - stunning blue eyes!

Vickie said...

Wow!! His eyes just pop!! Wonderful!
