First Candle – My Son’s Birthday Portrait
My son Luke recently celebrated his very first birthday! Someone tell me, how do they get so big so fast? Slow down already!
Happy birthday Lucas! Daddy couldn’t be more proud. I always thank God for you!
Want to see the original shot before my Photoshop magic? It’s a lot messier! Keep reading.
I’ve posted a tighter crop of the original image below. As you can see, he had already gotten into his cookie before I could capture the shot. He’s fast!
It took some time, but I managed to clean up his face and shirt. I also added the lit candle you see in the final image above. It had to be afterwards. Otherwise, this curious monkey would have tried to eat the flame!
Did you see Luke’s 9 Month old baby photos? They were adorable!
I have some cute ideas for his official 1 year old portraits. Hopefully I can create them this week. Stay tuned for a preview.
