close up

I often wish I could capture every single tiny detail of my beautiful boy
and preserve them forever so that I could never forget;
the way his hair smells,
the way his skin felt when he was a newborn,
the look on his face when he first felt the wind.

That's sort of why I started blogging
and is probably why I love photographing him so much,
in some attempt to catch that moment
and then keep that memory.

Take pictures of him in close up isn't as easy as it once was.
He's so wriggly now,
and cheeky.
As soon as the camera appears
he is desperate to grab the lens cap,
and then it's hard to focus.

But to get this picture
I let him hold the lens cap.
It kept him close and still(ish)
and pretty happy by the look on his face.

I love that you can see the length of his lovely eyelashes.
I love that it's captured the exact colour of his chocolatey eyes.
I love that you can see how incredibly perfect his skin is,
and how he has a little blue vein visible across the bridge of his nose
(and I especially love that because I have it too!)
