More Birthday Celebrations on I Heart Faces – Week 2: Best Face Photo

20 responses

I’ve been away for week or so as it is summer holidays here in Australia so have nearly missed out on entering this weeks competition. And boy are there a lot of entries! 700+ – must be nearly a record?

So, the rules are as follows: “Best Face Photo.” You should enter the face photo that you love the best that you took either in the month of December 2009 or in early January 2010. This is not the week to look through your archives for a favorite photo! We want something that is fresh and new and that shows off where you are in your photography journey right now.

I think this photo of Bronte really fits the criteria. My photography has evolved over the last year and I am loving where it is at at the moment.


I love this lazy, hazy summer days look (on the day this was taken it was just over 35 degrees celsius!). We were lying on a blanket in the back yard of where we were holidaying.  Lying under a big tree in its shade, just trying to cool down. She {we} had a snooze and this is just after she woke up….smiling at me when she realised that I was taking her photo….


I love her eyes. I love her emerging grin. I love her smattering of freckles.

  8. Thanks for the comment on my spagetti face girl. Australia. Wow. I can see the happiness in her eyes. It oozes love. Just beautiful.

  9. Oh K8 : ) I just want to say how much I adore this picture. Her first waking up smile is precious : ) I am glad she has a Mom like you who is taking pictures of her as she grows. I love her name, did I ever tell you!

    How can I ever thank you for your positively delightful comment today. You totally made my day. Yes, I have never had 134 comments before. Someone else asked me how I did it : ) I think some people come to visit me because they remember me from previous visits. I really love meeting the photographers and looking at their pictures. I know some people don’t like to go thru pictures because they all aren’t professional quality, but to tell you the truth, I ADORE the non professional pictures. I like the real moms with the real images that speak of their love for their child : ) Those are my most favorite. Of course I learn and glean knowledge from those professionals, but real mommy photographers are my most favorite kind : ).

    You always leave me lovely comments and I appreciate it! Thanks from the bottom of my heart! : )
