I was looking through the grandmother's club theme and had one I wanted to add. I hope you don't mind. I haven't much time anymore to stay caught up. I do look through the gallery from time to time and enjoy the great shots I find there. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. Take care!

As always, a beautifully composed shot, and an adorable baby!

A great shot Shelly! Adorable kid! That FACE!! Any woman would be proud to have a kid that handsome in their flock! This is a nice shot, very nice colors, and he has a great sparkle in his eye.

This is very nice, Shelly! Lovely sharpness in the eyes and curls, good composition with some nice space on the right of the shot, great catchlights and the overall exposure looks good to me. Lovely, sweet shot.

hello Shelly,
you have a beautiful grandchild! What big brown eyes!And his trusting smile is heart melting. I like your composition with the blanket behind creating a neutral space to the right.
Thanks for adding this to the theme.Have a lovely Christmas time in the centre of your family.
best wishes

A sensitive and expressive portrait. so clear and tender. How can we resist to such a smile?
Very good composition and framing, a real pleasure to see.
Best wishes for the coming season,

A nice natural looking portrait - an unposed look on his face and superb catchlights in the eyes which really bring his eyes to life.
Thanks for sharing

Hey Shelly!
I've decided to take a look at some of the photos within your gallery and I've come across this one and I must say, that your grandchild is quite adoreable.

On the technical side, I love the brownish background and although his hair is brown the lightness and difference between the two colours provide enough contrast! He's got quite spectacular eyes! Alas, the crop, lighting and the pov is quite excellent! Well done!
