I ♥ Faces ~ Happy Birthday to you!


jordyn 2


I was going to take the perfect picture tomorrow.  I have no idea what that picture was, but it was probably going to involve my kids, snow and the perfect light hitting their eyes.  (At least in my mind’s eye, that is!)  I just haven’t taken many pictures lately. 


Well, tomorrow just isn’t going to become a reality because I just remembered I’ll be at college all night.  Blah!  :( 


I dug through my December photos to find one I haven’t shared yet.  Perfect photo?  Nope.  But it does have one of my favorite people ever in it! 


Thank goodness for Photoshop’s ability to clean up boogers.  I didn’t even dare try to tackle the hair matted to the side of Jordyn’s cheek.  I’m just going with this.  When you’re up against 600 (and  counting) awesome photos, I think it’s time to just sit back and enjoy the inspiring photography of others. 


Thank you, Angie and Amy, for providing an amazing community for photographers!

  • Jen - that is AWESOME!! Love those huge chocolate eyesReplyCancel

  • Christal - I can't believe those eyes! I think it is a great shot! It is something to remember!
    I agree with you on just sitting back and enjoying the inspiration.

  • Becca - Oh I am SO glad to have met you on I Heart Faces this year :-) you are truly a blessing and encouragement and just a joy! every time you leave me a comment or I read your blog, it makes me smile!

    And this picture is too cute with those big brown eyes! :-) gorgeous my friend! (even with the matted hair — and that's the only reason I finally cut Jayci's bangs . . . they kept getting stuck in her boogers)ReplyCancel

  • EL at Through My Own Lens - I love this!!! Are you kidding?! I'm SO glad you didn't mess with her hair. I love the matted part on her cheek…LOVE it!!!

    I'm taking my perfect photo on Tuesday too…ha ha ha! But, I have another in mind (already uploaded and saved as a draft on my blog) just in case the stars don't align today. Which, I'm not holding my breath for!

  • Pam D - She is just gorgeous! (yay for the booger clean up, though.. thanks!). You have "the touch" to go along with "the eye"! I'd put your photos against anyone on that long (and getting loooonger) list, Andrea. And the fact that you are always willing to share your knowledge and help others just makes it even better! I heart I Heart Faces, and I heart you!ReplyCancel

Have you decided what kind of cake you are baking on Monday to celebrate? : )ReplyCancel
