Dear friends,

Meet Vincent, my 3rd grandson. 2 years old on next January 15. He passed the New Year Holidays with us at home.
This is a lovely baby, sun is there, everywhere he is!
Oh my! Now, grandmother is stiff, it's a gymnastics for this photo session. Here, I was lying on the floor at his level and the sun was shining on the floor.

We are waiting for Thomas, our 4 rd in few days!We are in hurry to see him! What a great joy of being grandparents!

Raw photo post-processed and converted in JPG with Digital Photo Professional. I did just minor adjustments with Photoshop CS 5, cropped and framed.

PS/ Sorry, it's not the good version I posted. I cloned a little car behind his hand and the mark of the selection is visible.

Hi Annie,
A very nice portrait of your grandson. You have managed to capture the portrait of a gentle boy. A very tender & loving effort.

Very natural, great uneven moment, excellent bokeh indeed

Very beautiful shot of little Vincent! What a joy these boys must bring to you .. and another on the way! Exciting.
Really great detail here, and a nice moment and expression captured. Well done.

A lovely shot of Vincent captured with beautiful high key kinda light and nice focus on his facial feature with graduated shallow depth.

Hello Annie

A superb profiled portrait with good sharpness & excellent use of a shallow dof. I like the warm colours. Nice reflections in the eyes. Merci!

Bonjour Annie,
J'ai connu, les joies de la maternité et j'attends avec impatience celles de devenir un jour peut être grand mère...
En attendant, je m'occupe des petits bout'choux à la crèche, ils me manquent beaucoup, étant en arrêt depuis une semaine....
J'ai hâte de les retrouver, voir leurs progrès, ce sont les plus petits et ils sont trop mignons...
Ton petit fils est superbe, il a des yeux magnifiques et je comprends la joie que tu peux éprouver lorsqu il vient te voir...
