This afternoon Piper and I had the house all to ourselves. It was a bit of foreshadowing- Grace starts Kindergarden in just a couple weeks and we are going to have lots of afternoons all to ourselves. I decided to take Pipey (her endearing nickname given to her by cousin Reagan) out for a couple snapshots. We are just two days shy of her being 11 months. Monthly birthdays always mark a good time for a photo update!
I am normally not a fan of Photoshop actions. I tend to like photos crisp, clean, and true- to- life color. However, I thought the photo below did call for a little bit of a vintage feel. I tried for 4 or 5 minutes to get this little rascal to look at the camera. Nothing. She wouldn’t so much as glance up at me. Little Stinker.
That is, until I called it quits and we walked inside. I sat her down to close the patio door , still had my camera in my hand, and she looked right into the lens. Gotcha. Maybe she just didn’t like me trying to take her picture in 110 degree heat. I get it.
