Living Arrows Week #1

I have decided this new year to join more blogging linkys, in order to discover more blogs, find more engaging readers and also of course create more content for my followers. The Living Arrows linky by Shutterflies blog is a good one as it is mainly about a photograph. A portrait photograph at that, and I like this because for me, it is where I need to learn the most in my photography! I am very much looking forward to taking part because I want to improve my skills when taking photographs of my children, and understand more how my camera works- so this is the perfect way to learn new tricks and gain inspiration from other bloggers taking part in the project. I’m also really excited about gathering more quality rather than quantity photographs of the children and perhaps some of them being good enough to enlarge and display at home (hopefully..)!

Below is January’s Living Arrows photograph. I took this shot of Gabriel on New Years Day during a walk at a local park. I love the way he has now automatically began to pose for photographs, shouting ‘BLUE CHEESE!’ and it makes me smile every single time!

Gabriel’s infectious grin and the way his personality shines through in the photograph is perfect to me. The weather was super windy, and he has crazy hair, but words just cannot describe how much I adore his little face.

    I’m so pleased you’re joining in, Michelle! I think it’s such a lovely project and it was so lovely to look back at a years worth of photos. You really don’t notice how much they change in a year! I love his little scrunched up face. What a cute photo x
