I Heart Faces: Completely Candid

This week at I Heart Faces the theme is "completely candid." I couldnt really think of any particularly wonderful candid shots, so I thought I'd go ahead and pose a candid shot. Oh wait, that doesn't work? Right.

Anyways, I looked back through my pictures and found this shot from when I took pics of my sweet friends and their new baby (see more here). I love it for the same reason I love all candid shots: it captures the essence of who they are so much more authentically than any posed/smiley/cheese picture ever could (did you like how I couldn't exactly find the right word so I just used three? I'm such a good writer.)

*I think this week's theme at I Heart Faces is so fun - go check out all the entries. Come on, do it. Peer pressure.

  12. I love this picture! It really makes me wonder if the baby spit up or if it burped or if it belted out "Whaz up!" Okay...maybe not the last one, but it sure does make me wonder. You made a great choice, Becca :)
