"Completely Candid" Photo Challenge

I just recently stumbled upon the "I Heart Faces" blog, while blog surfing on a rainy afternoon... I've always loved photography, and it's only been a few years since I bought my first camera and starting taking pictures of my family and friends.



I love looking at other people's photos, to get inspiration and to learn from them, so the "I Heart Faces" blog is absolutely perfect to help me develop my photography skills!

This is my entry for the "Completely Candid" photo challenge.



I'm so nervous! Haha! This is my first ever entry, so I'm feeling a bit squirrely. Here I go.

This is a photo of my youngest brother Christopher, who, while still in my Mommy's belly, became an Uncle. My oldest nephew is 7 months older than him. Christopher is now an Uncle to 18 children, and since we're a closely knit family, he has contact with many of them at least once every week! He's so relaxed with babies, he can pick them up, put them down, hold them, change them, feed them, anything.

He's holding my nephew Wesley in this picture, who is 6 months old. I think this picture is so candid because it shows how gentle Christopher is with the babies, holding Wesley like an expert, making sure his hood isn't covering his face so he can see what's happening on the deck.

Hey, my peeps, make sure you go check out the other pictures on the "I Heart Faces" website, they are so good! They will definitely make you want to pick up your camera and start snapping.
