Sweet Innocence


I just love the simple pureness of a baby’s eyes. This photo is my entry into the I heart faces monthly competition. It’s my second time entering this and I’m so excited as it was loads of fun last time. I saw some wonderful photos and some new blogs/photographers to follow. This time the category is Beautiful Eyes. I think Junebug has beautiful eyes… she has her daddy’s eyes. 

She is standing near the window which allowed me to capture the catchlight in her eyes. It is shot on my Sony SLT-A35 at ISO 200,  f/1.8 and shutter speed 1/250 second. I edited it a little in photoshop elements, just evening out the shadow across her face. 


Just look at those eyelashes! A thoughtful moment – probably wondering how she can create more mischief! 

Thanks for looking I hope you enjoyed the photos.
