Sometimes I dream about catchlights!

First things, first....Thanks for all the comments left in the last post! I love hearing what everyone loves to see concerning newborn photography and, even more, I LOVED hearing about all the great places to buy beautiful props! I will choose a winner tomorrow and get to making some headbands!
When hubby gets home from work, Haleigh RUNS out to be with him. Tonight's dinner finally included our VERY favorite summer side...FRESH CORN ON THE COB! Haleigh and daddy were out shucking the corn (is that the right term for it?) And I couldn't get over the amazing catch lights in Haleigh's eyes. All of my kids have dark, dark eyes (just like daddy) and sometimes it is really hard to make their eyes look amazing in pictures. Tonight's lighting begged for a quick impromptu shoot. The background is simply a lounge chair she was sitting in while helping her dad.

I feel like sometimes the best photos are the unplanned ones.

These are all straight out of camera. Nothing done to her eyes. Nothing enhanced or changed. Just re-sized and sharpened for web. The catch lights were just that amazing tonight! Sure, they could use some the green cast to her skin...but these summer days, who has time for that?

She's pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Although....I am her mother and I could be just a little partial.
