My husband and I had some time to spare at Navy Pier a few days ago, so we walked around a bit.  I have driven by before, but have not ever been inside!  We toured the Children’s Museum (and plan to go back soon WITH the kids!! 😉 ) and checked out the different stores and vendors.  It was a bit chilly and foggy the day we were there and I am excited to go back in the summer when we can be near the water and enjoy all the outside fun, too!

i heart faces ~ beautiful black and white

I love how black and white processing can make just the right image even more powerful ~ like it makes the story of the photo jump out of the image even more.  It isn’t for every image, but many times when I am editing, I just know… this one needs to be black and white.

I had trouble choosing between two different images that I wanted to enter into I Heart Faces this week.  They were both of my boys just playing in the backyard, so I had my family vote for which one they liked best.  This was the winner, especially because it was my husband’s vote ;).  I think this guy has just about the biggest smile ever.  And he definitely has handsome covered.  All the boys in our house absolutely love to laugh and find one of life’s best challenges is to make others laugh, too.

So excited to see all the other incredible black and white images over at I Heart Faces!

    Love this! I think the best part of being a photographer is getting to photograph our own kids. And he does have a great smile!
