Last week my husband and I decided that we needed to get Levi's haircut again. So I called and made an appointment and the morning that we were going to go I gave Levi a bath while his sister was napping. After his bath, I got him dressed and combed his hair and he just looked so cute and was giving me some really good smiles so I grabbed my camera and started shooting.
I got a few good pictures of him but then he started to get fussy. I'm not sure why but I remembered this post I read and wrote about last week about how mom's need to get into pictures with their kids. I asked Levi if he wanted to have his picture taken with me and he got excited and said yes.
So I plopped down on the couch next to him and turned the camera on the both of us and shot this picture. It was the first one I took and it was by far the best one. It is definitely not easy to do a self portrait at arms length with a DSLR but I am so happy that I tried! This is a photo that I will cherish for years to come!
