I am not ashamed to admit, I am such a wanna-be photographer. I have such a vision in my head of what will look good, but then when it comes to executing my idea.... well let's just say I have a long way to go before I can consider myself even decent. But I love to practice!! Anyway, my Mom and I are always looking online at photographer's websites to find cool pictures to try and do ourselves. And my Mom sent me this first picture this weekend, and I fell in love. So this morning (I couldn't wait until night-fall) I took Evan in my closet with a strand of Christmas lights (luckily I have a giant closet). Well, he wasn't as intrigued as I had hoped he would be. So almost within seconds, he lost interest. I kept trying to get him interested, by putting his teddy bears underneath the pile of lights. But again, very quickly, it was over. Well, during a split second when the door was open, as I was getting more props to entice Evan's curiosity, Corky strolled in. So when I had lost Evan's interest all together, I had a new subject. One that wouldn't move, that always looked cute and that was very cooperative (she has been my subject now for 6 1/2 years). So it was not a lost cause.... just a little different than my inspiration picture!!! But all caveats aside, I did get a cute picture or two of Evan as well.
PS. If anyone knows how to do captions and its fairly easy to explain, please leave a comment. I can't figure it out for the life of me, and this post in particular would have been so much cuter with captions. Thanks!!!!
