I had mentioned that I would try using a green backdrop to photograph Jack in his Santa constume. I attempted it last week, dressing Jack in his little Santa outfit, and even getting our beloved pooch Maisey in on the action. However, the two of them would not play ball. Jack was by far the worst offender - he was busy pulling his own hat off, and then Maisey's too. Maize just wouldn't look at the camera. Too bad. The green turned out well though!
Since I took this portrait last week, it has really grown on me. I sent it to my parents and grandparents, who both printed it out and are displaying it, (It might be down to the fact they're all very fond of Maisey and dote on Jacky) and a friend of mine thinks it works well because it isn't 'posed'. So, with all these lovely compliments, I don't feel the need to hide it away quite so much!
I was delighted to win fourth place
with this photo on The Paper Mama!
Thanks so much!
