It is week no. 2 for our Me & Mine group. This week we were to take faceless portraits. This is such a great concept–I love that I had to think of how I wanted to communicate the important details about my children right now without showing their faces.

1.) a little guy who is new to wearing underwear, but doing a great job 2.) the same little guy wearing some converse sneakers holding a favorite stuffed animal 3.) my middle guy who is obsessed with all things WWE  4.) my oldest who is currently learning to play the recorder 5.) my sweet scruffy Maisy Daisy

Now you can enjoy viewing the other photographers in our circle, beginning with the incredibly talented Orange County Photographer,  Allison Jacobs. I can’t wait to see her faceless portrait.

    oh gracious. perfection. I love each of these so, so, so much! the underwear shot though is the most awesome. And we have the same pig! Cora named him “Wilburt”. not Wilbur, Wilburt. Your processing is utter perfection.

    I adore your work. Truly. That first image where you can see the indents from where his socks were. Be still my heart.

  9. ok, i know this is a little strange, but my favorite thing about the first shot is the little indentions of his socks on his leg! Love it! great captures this week!

    I have to say the first one is my very favorite. I pray to take pictures of my son like this soon. 🙂 (We hope to do some potty training this summer) It just reminds me of laying around as a kid and how I see my kids do now. Love your black and white processing!
