Ethan's Baptism Invite Photo

 

I wonder where the past several months have gone!  It seems like it was just yesterday that our first child was born and I accepted a new position, nearly simultaneously.  Now six months later, after having had the chance to settle into my new routine, I finally managed to dust off my camera and take some photos of my little one.  I was never one for taking portraits of friends or family but seeing as Ethan is growing and changing on a seemingly daily basis I felt I had better get to work.

I always knew that portrait photos would require an entirely new set of skills to capture the personality of the subject but after years of photographing wildlife I thought I would have a good starting point.  After several attempts with lackluster results, I realized just how much I still had to learn!  After a couple weeks of experimenting, shooting and reviewing the results, I finally feel that I am starting to get some things correct and am much happier with the finished product.
