So I’ve tried not to overload you guys with pictures of my baby boy because I don’t want to annoy anyone. But I took some recently that are just too good not to share!
A couple weeks ago, I got a new toy: a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II camera lens. And to make a long story short: I’m OB-sessed with it! I just took Roarke out into our backyard, laid a blanket down and started snapping!!
He’s started teething, so he’s constantly running his tongue over his gums and sticking it out. Most people might think, “He’s got his tongue out..that’s not a good picture.” But, for me, that just captures ‘him.’
Excuse me while I melt into a puddle on the floor.
I was actually just testing my camera settings on this shot, but it ended up being one of my favorites!
Notice that bright blue blur in the background? That’s actually a kiddie pool in our neighbors yard (a.k.a not usually something you’d want in the background of a picture), but because of the large aperture on this lens, it just sort of fades away!
Baby boy in a chambray shirt? Plus that adorable grin? Be still my heart.
I’m so thankful that I’m able to capture these casual moments with my sweet little guy. Honestly, if you’re a soon-to-be parent, I would highly recommend getting a nice quality camera. Even outside of taking pictures for the blog, I use mine ALL the time…it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made!
