i ♥Faces: Week 15

Well, i didn't think that I'd have time, energy, or ability to make it to this week's contest. But, here I am! This week's contest at I ♥ Faces is all about self-portraits (ugh!--one more reason why i almost didn't post an entry!)

Kid's Category

My first entry is with Me and C. She wasn't taking her morning nap so i plopped her in a black onesie (courtesy of Caroline!) and away we went...into the bathroom. We live in a really old apartment (don't worry, its been updated!) that has a great bathroom mirror. C, being the vain child that she is (i jest), loved looking in the mirror and tried to attack that baby! I took more than 200 photos but this was my fave:



Adult's Category

Channeling C, i stole her headband and took a few snaps of myself. Why not? I think the mirror is a great frame! If I had enough time, i would have cropped out a few elements in the photo (like the towel hook on our door!)...oh well!



as always, click on the button below or on this link to see more entries!

I LOVE the way you used the mirror as a frame - beautiful!

Mommy said...

However you can get the kids in the shot is wonderful. I have found if I get in with them they like the camera more...I don't though. Great job!

Jessi said...

I love these. They are pretty and different :_)

Esther said...

Sweet connection in the first picture, and love the flower in the second...it totally makes the shot. Nice.

I adore your quirky, candid (I love how your daughter is reaching out, touching the mirror, checking out that "other baby"!!), pink-pop-of-color first picture. It's just darling!!

I love both of these, but your Kids entry is awesome! Love everything about it.

I wouldn't PS a single thing out of your adult submission. I like the way it is frame and "raw." And that is a sweet little kiss you are giving your girl in the child picture.
