black and white Wednesday

It's the 4th week of black and white Wednesday.


A few days ago I managed to capture these of my 4 year old son Will. If you don't know Will already he can sometimes be compliant and let me take his picture and sometimes not. I really can't blame him, it's much more fun when you're a little boy to play with your toys or pretend you're a super hero than have your momma follow you around with a camera.



I took advantage of the natural light and reflection off the snow
coming through the windows of our master bedroom to take these pictures.

These were processed in Lightroom first where I converted them to black and white, then brought into PS to sharpen his eyes a teeny bit. Will has very 'sparkly' dark eyes that definitely show his personality. I love these images because they have a classic, timeless look to me. I'm delighted to have some new pictures of my sweet little man!

He is adorable! My little man runs away from me now when he sees the camera in my hands. He is so funny. I'm hoping with time he will allow me to take pictures again.

Love the way you processed them. Beautiful...
