A little cherub. That is the most fitting description of my latest little subject.
14 months old, serious and charming. She was a dream to photograph. The intensity in her eyes came through in every image.
The only time we had to expend any energy was when it came down to getting some smiles. Those were hard won until Mom and I got our silly on!
The resultant hard-won smiles were just adorable.
What a great family!

On Saturday October 2, I visited my least favorite place in the world. No, it wasn’t my dentist’s chair (I went today), or a squat toilet in Beijing (ack!). It was Chuck E Cheese, my version of hell on earth.
Yet the reason for the visit was a good one: a birthday party for my friend’s young daughter.
The kidlet and I showed up that evening to get our party groove on. I brought along The Precious to see what I could capture in that evil boisterous place. Surprisingly the results aren’t too shabby.
My kid, of course:
Back to the party:
I even got some good portraits:
This shot was worth the whole headache of being in Chuck E Cheese in the first place:
It even looks good in B&W:
Pretty good for no flash and hellacious lighting, right?

Well that was pretty darn easy for me. My favorite face belongs to my absolutely adorable daughter, Zara. And last night during bathtime, I couldn’t resist getting some new shots of my favorite face ever.
These shots were tricky considering the typically abysmal bathroom lighting, but I shot at f1.4, SS1/400 & ISO 1000. There were terrible color issues despite my having used my BaLens for a custom white balance, but I think I got most of them worked out in PS. I also wanted to make sure that there were no, um, bits showing. But other than a little midtone lift, I processed them clean.
Can you see why she’s my favorite face?
