I heart faces week 12 kids entry ~ Pouting


It's time for a new contest over at I Heart Faces, and this week's theme is pouting. The photo I am entering is of my daughter when she was 9 months old. I had just started playing around with manual mode on my D80. I took this photo along with the rest in the shoot in my daughter's room using only natural light from her windows. I wanted something different for her 9 month session, so I made the flower cap from a newborn cloth hat, TONS of fake hydrangeas, and a multitude of hot glue. The pot, though decorative, was made of light weight plastic. My baby girl was able to pull up and kept tipping herself over in the pot...I caught her, but it was enough to make her very mad. Yes.....I did this to my daughter.....I know it wasn't very nice of me, but she looked so cute! When I saw the theme of this week's contest, I knew immediately which photo I would be entering. Thanks for looking at my entry. Click on the link or the iheartfaces button to view other adorable pouts or enter one of your own.

  21. Your light in the picture is absolutely wonderful. And the vibrance of the pinks is quite lovely. Though I think I would get a tad angry if you stuck me in a pot! :)
