Yesterday after school, Dominic was feeling particularly playful. I got some hilarious shots of him eating Smarties (which he swore made him smart when he was four) and he was convinced they were sour. I'm hoping to get a few "sour Pickle" face photos up soon. I also captured a rough-housing session between him and Jenny and he definitely came out the winner there. ;)
This photo though... it captured my heart. He was laughing so genuinely (tho' I can't share why, he was being inappropriate... boys!) that I got this moment of him looking up at me. He seems so small, young, innocent, and happy. I wanted to try out the black and white conversion technique that I created earlier this week for the Clickin' Moms Photoshop 15th challenge so I used it on this photo. There is something timeless and precious about black and white photos, isn't there?
I love being a mom. I love being their mom. :)
Thanks for looking!
