Victoria O’Leary: baby love

Is that even a word?  Who knows?  Oh well, it absolutely describes this photograph.   We have been shy about sharing are own work.  Mostly because we have set very high standards for the work we want to feature on this blog and its really all about showing you guys the best and most creative honest photography we can find.  We have our own blogs to show our own work.

But that said, I cannot resist posting this image.  Tory took this and I had to literally twist her arm to get her to let me feature it today.  (as a side note, Tory is like the baby whisperer of photography. She has all these little tricks to put those babies to sleep and pose them just right, but that is another post).  I LOVE everything about it.  I want that green wall in my house.  And another baby?  Well, four may be enough, but there’s always room for more, right?  Although, my husband says Four and NO MORE. And I do believe he means it.

In any case, here is a beautiful baby.  And a gorgeous image.  And we need more of them.  PLEASE  PLEASE keep your submissions coming in.  We do have a bit of a backlog, the response has been terrific, but we need submission constantly.  Especially BABIES!  And Seniors!  And anything out of the box and creative!  Send it in to us.

Please don’t be as shy as we are.

    perfect shot tory! love it, and thanks ladies for a chance to win $150!!

  • I did both! I love the idea of honest portraits. We are surrounded by overphotoshoped images that bare little or no resemblance to the subject. I’ll have to start submitting. I’d love to be featured.

    I love the site because it helps me remember that it’s not about the clothes.. it’s about the KID! 🙂

  • I already liked the page on facebook, but I posted it for all my friends to see.

    I LOVE this blog because it feels like it’s the truth, you know? Honest and creative photography is often hard to find, mostly because big blogs like to publish stuff that isn’t necessarily reflective of “real life.” This blog is. And I love that.
