Valentine's Photo Shoot

As Joseph has become mobile, he has also become harder and harder to photograph by myself.  I knew that I wanted to set up a Valentine's day shoot for him so we could send cards out to our family, I just didn't realize how hard it would be. 

The original "plan" was to take his pictures outside.  After many failed attempts during which he was constantly trying to crawl away, I finally grabbed my heart buntings off the mantle, decorated his crib, and threw him in there.  Luckily, his crib is next to a window and it was a beautiful day so I had decent lighting to work with. 

He is quite the ham and prefers to give me his closed lip, stretched neck smile over a genuine one. 

He also likes to talk a lot, even during photo shoots.  I'm not sure if he gets that from me or Sam, but it allows him to fit right into the Parks family.

 The finaly product was this sweet little Valentine's Day card that I think really captures his personality.
