You've Got Mail



Whose got mail?
Bennett!!!!
Every morning when he wakes up, it is waiting for him.
A purple one, a orange one, and a blue one.
Who doesn't love receiving a letter?
"To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart."
-Phyllis Theroux
Bennett says, "Send someone a letter today (via snail mail or email)! Let them know you are thinking about them.  Tell them why you appreciate them.
Your words will put a SMILE on someone's face.

***This week I learned that I need to stop worrying about how my pictures look.  I started capturing Bennett in everyday life, so that I would remember the things he enjoyed during each stage.  The above photos are full of noise, but I shot on manual with a high ISO and just gave them a 70's look for fun.  
Click it up a notch
Hopefully next week I will have a better photo to share.
Be sure to check out the other posts.  I learned a lot this week even if it doesn't show in my photo.  
Thanks Ashley and Jill!!
***The you capture theme was doors.  I had good intentions when I started shooting, as the toy you see above is a door.  B loves it, but his favorite part is the mailbox.  Sorry!

Love the story the pictures they tell! Maybe I'm just partial to the 70's look- I love all things vintage. All you need are rounded corners!
Great job!

I'm with you on that! I'd rather make sure I capture those little moments instead of worrying all about the quality of the photo. Cause granted you don't always have the best lighting, angel and focus all of the time! I am totally with you on this one!

Cute photos! I love that toy! My girls both played with the same one when they were younger. Now I think I am going to mail out a letter to someone I know who will appreciate it today, thanks!

Kindra said...

These are great pictures of him in action - and I love the look you gave them with your editing. I'm so glad to see how much Bennett enjoys this - now I know we must put this on Anlon's birthday wish list for the grandparents!

Ashley Sisk said...

I honestly didn't see the noise and it's much more important to capture a moment for sure. Great edit work!

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

I really like how you have edited the shot - I use the 70s action alot. Your last photo really brightened up with that set of edits.

What great shots! I definitely don't worry as much what the photos of my kids look like. I'll keep ones that are out of focus or have a strange exposure if I capture something unique. I'd rather keep the moment forever than scrap it because it isn't perfect!

julie said...

Great shots...nice edit! :)

Janell said...

Love the vintage feel to these and I honestly didn't really see any noise. Here's a tutorial to turn your lens into a macro. hope it helps!

You are correct we all love to get mail, so long as it's not bills!

Nice job with the editing. Photoshop can be so fun.

Wendy said...

Look at those chubby little cheeks! I bet you just kiss those all day, I definately would.

Debb said...

Bennett is SO CUTE!!! I'm squeezing his cheeks from here! Gently, of course! :D

Courtney said...

Who doesn't love getting mail?? I sometimes wish email wasn't invented so people still mailed letters. Oh the good old days :O) I love these photos and the sweet exploration you can see on his face.
