Under My Umbrella

I haven't felt this happy about how a group of photos came out in a long time.  The perfect storm of photographical elements.  Which is why I submitted this first photo...


to  Photography love... 
for their show and tell photo challenge for "under."

Show a blue-eyed boy under a brand new blue umbrella which matches his blue rainboots.  Tell you that he is as beautiful as he looks.


The day was perfect for these photos.  The white slushy snow was not too blinding thanks to the rain.



Warm enough to go out in just a sweatshirt, no hat.  No mad dash to the car.  Time to linger and capture great moments.  My amazing little boy.


The biggest question is


which one(s) do I frame?


I'd love your input because I can't choose.  My heart is too full to have any discretion.

Write it in lipstick

I love them all but my personal favorites are the first one, the one where Jax is standing in the street looking off into the distance, and the last one. Although they are all quite gorgeous and adorable :D

Tammy said...

All of them! =) HeHe... That probably didn't help. I like the first one, if I'd have to pick. He's so cute!

MamaTales said...

Don't pick just one! What about doing a collage with your top favorites. These pictures all turned out great! My two cents, the first one (close up head shot), third one (action shot) and eight one (him being silly).

bernie said...

I like the close up of his face as well. What beautiful eyes! He is going to be a heart breaker.

Picture #7 is my favorite because it shows your cute boy along with some beautiful scenery.

Just stopping by from FTLOB weekend wander. I think your pictures are great. I lived in Boston for 2 years...such a great town...San Diego would be lovely ....but Vermont has beauty of it's own!

Cheers!

No. 7 said...

Hey! Gosh, he's a cutie. It's a lovely day in New England today :) YAY! I love the very first and the very last for framing.

Cherie said...

I always use these type of shots to frame, these are just gorgeous! I would use the one that captures his personality the best! If shy, pick the one hiding his face, or if he is a little goofy funny, pick the one with his head tilted to the side. Just a thought!

I'd frame them all, such an incredible little face! But..the one where he's incognito under the umbrella...adorable!

Just loved your photos; so glad I stopped by from FTLOB this morning.

Holy cow that's a cute kid!!! I'm stopping over from FTLOB and I must say the last picture is my favorite though the close up one is very cute too. I can see why it's so hard to choose!

Marjorie said...

He is so cute!! And these pictures are perfect.
My personal fav for framing..
The first one.
The fifth one (where he's holding the toy car)
and the Last one.

I couldn't narrow it down further than that though :)
Happy Comment Love Day!
