{where has my baby gone???}

I was looking through some old photos the other day, came across these, and fell in love.  This was literally about a week or so after I got my DSLR (all taken with my kit lens).  I knew *nothing* about photography at this point and Kaydence was only 5 months old.  I have never posted these anywhere because it was literally just me "practicing" in manual mode.

I don't care about any of the technical stuff in these photos because all I see is my baby being a baby.  At the time, these were just "throw away" shots to me, but now I adore them so much that it hurts a little.  So a little word of advice, sometimes it pays to keep the throw aways...I'm so glad I never deleted them!  And the miraculous thing is that these somehow escaped my epic hard drive crash of 2010, so I will treasure these forever and always.

Where, oh where has my baby gone???  ::weep::

Sweet sweet KK. I absolutely love how you can see the big girl in her now from these photos. That scrunched up nose and that curious look. Love these and love her!

Love these! I love how you can see her big girl face now in these images when she was so young. From her scrunched up nose to her curious eyes...so much the same but so different. Love these and love her!

Oh my gosh. These are so lovely. Can you explain your processing?

Jodi said...

She's obviously younger in these - but to me she looks exactly the same, if that makes sense...she looks like "her" even this little!

Thanks! Claire

Oh these are so beautiful! You just captured so much about her little personality. I'd love shots like this of my little ones :)

Claire -- her little "K" necklace is from Urban Outfitters. :-)
