Coming from one who does not do well with portraits, still lifes are more my thing, I really like this shot. It gives me some inspiration to keep trying to get my little one to smile! Great shot... #1654269

Description

My youngest Elijah while trying to get a picture of him for our Christmas card. My son Andrew was doing his best to coax a smile out of him and this is the fruit of his labor!! Taken with "studio" lights. Background color obtained from darker color in Elijah's lips.
