Patrick's 3rd Portrait

Since I started photographing Patrick a year ago, with the Growing Baby Portrait Package, he has grown a lot. Take a look at his first and second slideshows. I can't believe how much he looks like a little man now! After about 15 minutes of unusual quiet, Patrick became his usual playful self. We played throughout the whole house, including golf in the backyard, so it was an active morning. Aside from some beautiful close-up portraits of Patrick, I think my favorite image is of Patrick standing with one hand on his hip and the other holding a bag of Goldfish crackers. His adorable attitude made me laugh at that moment and each time I see the image.

In the after-processing stages, I added some fine art textural effects to some of the images of Patrick and I love how they turned out. It adds something antique and rustic to these emotion-filled images. These type of effects can be added to any image and look especially great on our fine art canvas pieces, watercolor paper and in our custom-designed albums.
