2013 CM Blog Circle: January-Close-Up Portraiture {Lisa Rappa Photography}



      This year, in addition to a few other projects/challenges (yes, I have a project addiction...let's hope I can complete all of these this time!) I have joined a group of fabulous ladies thru Clickin Moms in a blog circle. Each month we will all focus on a certain challenge for inspiration and post our interpretations and images on our blogs. I will link to the next talented lady at the end of my post so you can view her work as well and so on.


    The first challenge of the year was "close up portraits." Of course at the beginning of January I thought, oh I'll have plenty of time, this will be a slow month...ha! January got crazy to my happy surprise, but luckily my son allowed me to pull him to the side to snap a few quick close ups. And honestly I am so inspired to do more of these. I know I will love looking back at the details of his sweet face as he grows and changes. I know before long there won't be much "baby" left in these cheeks. I chose not to process these much. The light was pretty and I love viewing him just as he is, chapped chin, cheeks and all. He will always be perfection to me.









                          His tiger face ;) 

     


 Yep-  it's hard not to spoil this kid ;)
