Seems like last month I was posting her newborn shots.

The story with that darn blanket is that it was mine as a baby - I promised my mother I would take some shots with it and in my old dresses, so don't complain about blanket overdose, ok? :lol:

A couple have background issues I may try to sort out later.

I'm going to try again soon (same blanket, same dresses) - she turns 1 next week and I thought it would be nice to have some from right around her birthday, so any suggestions will be incorporated into the next effort.

Sorry for so many at once. :blushing:

Thanks for the comments.

I hesitate to admit it, but she had a black eye recently from leaping into a coffee table, so I had to lighten the bruise and redness left from the healing cut under her left eye. :blushing:

But yes, I also increased the contrast a little, removed shadows, and did a slight unsharp mask on her eyes, depending on how much was needed

She is forever tearing up (not crying, just teary eyes), so I had to fix that in some of them as well, but that's par for the course for her - otherwise every single shot would look like she's been upset.

She takes after my 5 year old with the big eyes - here he is in a snapshot making a silly face last week:

Thank you for your input - much appreciated. The rocking chair was an afterthought when we were almost done - funny that they came out so well, considering.

It's good you added the rocking chair, though. I am still learning about photographing babies and older children myself, my first newborn shoot back in January, did not go so well. So I am always amazed at people's photos of babies and children, and yours I think are just really great here.

lvcrtrs and taknbyd, thanks for both of your comments. Much appreciated.

I know I need a better background...hopefully I'll be able to work on that this week. I don't think the taupe one was too terrible, given the coloring overall?

Thank you Blondie.

It's a Panasonic DMC-fz50. I haven't upgraded to a DSLR yet, but I've been happy with it for the most part.
