Levi, 6 months old, in Joshua’s hands.

I thought I might do a series of these ‘baby in hands’ images, as Levi grows and changes. He is sitting now, and is a constant joy to all of us.

Both images were taken with my Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/125
Av( Aperture Value ) 5.0
ISO Speed 400
Lens EF50mm f/1.8 II
Processed in Photoshop CS5, Topaz B&W Effects also used, along with some of my own textures and one from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    A precious and darling image, micklyn. You did an earlier one with Levi in hands. You could do a series of these, they would make an awesome calendar. What a beautiful little fellow!

  • Thanks so much, Seth, I would very much like to do a series… or maybe I could do similar images for other moms with babes. That would be fun. : )
