There’s something magical about the hands and feet of a little person — I just can’t get enough!!! 

I am just starting to experiment with my new macro (close up!) lens.    This is only the beginning…

With the blog promotion going on, I’m REALLY excited to take macro photos of a sleepy newborn…and maybe a prego belly button?  Oh, the possibilities.  🙂 

The sweet one-year-old pictured here was SUCH a busy little crawler.  She was tearing up the sidewalk and even my keys didn’t keep her still for very long.   I got lucky when she paused for a moment. 

In this picture above, I love the texture of the ground with the various nooks, crannies, and shadows & think it adds so much to the image.    I think her hand, all stretched out, is super cute, too (those tiny wrinkles and dimples always get me).   

Thanks, C, for letting my borrow your little cutie for a couple minutes.  🙂

{UPDATE on BLOG PROMO}  Thank you everyone for your submissions.  I’ve read though them and really appreciate you taking the time to write a little about yourself and send pictures.  I don’t know HOW I’m going to decide at this point because all your emails have been super sweet and interesting.  Pics great, too.  🙂 

For those of you that did not send pics with your submission, please do.  Your picture, along with your written portion, will help me decide whether our personal styles will mesh.  Some of the pictures taken at the free sessions with me will go on my website, so I really feel like I need a grasp of “you” before I decide.   I’m going for unique!  

If you’d still like to send in a submission, just check out the post below this one and follow those directions — you have until next Wednesday night.  Can’t wait to hear from more fabulous moms-to-be.     ~m
