The fun begins TODAY ...

at I Heart Faces. And here is my first submission for their "kid's faces" category:

IMG_2014


Portraits can be such a subjective matter. I picked this particular photograph because it encompasses everything *I* like about a good portrait. It's clean and simple. The focus is completely on the face. It's quite natural - his hair is messy, as per usual, and the expression on his face is one that he wears regularly. In other words, this picture, I think, "captures" my son. Plus, dont'cha think he's completely adorable?!?

In fact, don't you find it hard to believe that just this morning this angel said the following: "I have a giant stinky poop that's going to explode like a BOMB!" ???

Boys. Boys with their potty humor combined with violence. You gotta love it. Or not.

Anyway, head on over to I Heart Faces (click on the graphic below) to see all the great portraits and to submit one of your own, if you like.

OMG, that photo combined with that quote is HILARIOUS. What a funny kid. And such a BOY thing to say.

My boy told me today that he picked a booger and Annie ate it. I don't know who to be more disappointed with, him or the dog.

So you're saying the potty talk is never going to get better? I have a 4 year old who has some pretty priceless quotes of his home. I figured he'd grow out of it...guess not! :) I love the composition of your photo...and OH MY! Those eyelashes!
