...totally cooperated for his first ever Christmas picture!
I love these so much because they show his personality so well.
I really wish I could bottle him up and keep 5 month old Grady forever
but these pictures will have to do.
And still cute even when he was done smiling.
So here are my Christmas picture taking tips:
1. Take pictures after your baby is well slept and fed - it's much easier to pull smiles out when this is the case.
2. If you're looking for nice bokeh (blurry background), in my case a Christmas tree,
pull your baby up a few feet so they will be nice and crisp and the background a beautiful blur.
3. Use a portrait lens - I used a Canon 50mm lens - f3.5, ISO800
4. Download a fun free Photoshop action like this one and edit your photos in one click!
