I Heart {Messy} Faces!

Time for another I Heart Faces Contest, and this week's theme is "Messy". I had so many great natural light messy shots from the little Beast's first year of life, but lost them when my computer crashed last summer. So here's a more recent one of him playing with his ink stamp set. Not a great picture because I used the flash, but it fits the theme! And captures his impish personality!


Now, head over to I Heart Faces to check out all the other messes!

Proof that the desire for tattoos must be innate :) Always the face isn't it? I lost all the MIDI files of my older 2 singing a few years back after a rash reformat and my stomach still sinks when I think about it - this digital stuff is so quick and easy to make and so quick and easy to lose - by comparison my Mum still has cassettes of me singing from over 35 years ago - I'm that ancient!

I love this photo. His smile is adorable and those eyes are amazing. The colors just pop on his little face.

You can easily remove the yellow cast in photoshop or photoshop elements. I'm sure in other programs as well, I've just been learning in photoshop.

Great photo!

You have one cute boy and I love his purple nose! Yes, why do they go for the face?! Have you tried to shoot in low light without the flash? It requires steady hands but can sometimes work.

Stamps are not just for paper! You captured a great grin and his eyes are beautiful. The purple nose goes well with his green eyes.
