iHeartFaces - Week 17

It's time for this week's photography contest over at iHeartFaces. I was so excited about my Top 10 finish last week, that I couldn't wait to get started on this week. Thanks again to the Angie, Amy, and the judges for making this contest possible each week. I truly believe it is making me look at my photography much more closely.

This week's theme is "Hats." I am submitting my kid entry and my adult entry in on post this time. So here goes...


I just love this photo...it is one of my all time favorite photos. The toothless grin is absolutely priceless. Generally, especially at this age, she was such a serious baby...so capturing a huge smile was like winning a huge prize.



Here's another self-portrait. I really cheated one this one...I just had nothing of an adult wearing a hat. And I had no creative ideas to go out an shoot a new one. But I love this picture because it is me wearing my new Barry Manilow hat at a recent concert (and mind you I am wearing it with pride!).
