Top Photos of 2013: 16

So I tried to take pictures of Stella every month for the first year.  I believe I got about 9 or 10 months.  Not too bad.  Some shoots were easy and I got a boatload of great pictures.  Other times she was difficult and I only walked away with a few decent pictures for my troubles.  

Today's pictures come from her 7th Month photos back in January.  It was one of the times when I had many great pictures to choose from.  She was in a happy mood, smiling and giggling the entire time.  Easy.

I'm a big fan of black and white pictures, especially when it is for landscapes or portraits.  I am also a fan of high contrast in black and white pictures.  Today's picture is an example of both.


It was one of the final pictures I took that day.  I love everything about this picture I think.  The fact that she is offset.  Her eyes.  The contrast.  The black and white.  The look on her face.  It is one of my favorite pictures of her.  From this shoot at least.  There are so many pictures of her; it is hard to choose which are favorites.  But this one would be up there.

Winding down the count now.  The heat is on.  What can top today's picture for Day 17?  Hmmmmm?  I'd better start hunting.

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.

    1. Thanks so much. Sometimes I get addicted to B&W but often find it changes the tone and mood of a shot dramatically!

  2. Very nice shot! Yes, I'm with Duncan (and you)--B&W does this photo good. In the white background (and I like that some of the wrinkles in the fabric are visible; adds depth) your daughter's expression really shines. She looks like an angel :)

    1. Thanks so much! It's funny you mention the wrinkles. They used to bother me, but obviously not enough to iron out, but sometimes I guess they do work! :)

    A very nice portrait.

    1. Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it!
