the towel series

Okay folks, I'm calling on you all for some help here. I recently snapped a few shots of my little babe right after he got out of the bath thinking that maybe I would want to frame one and put it in our extra bathroom as a little personal decorating touch. But now I am having a problem. I cannot for the life of me decide which picture to use. I like them all for different reasons and I dislike them all for different reasons-- the lighting is good in one, his facial expression is better in another, too much towel in some, not enough in others, bad composition but great face in some, decent compostion but eyes closed in others... you get the idea. So here is where you come in. I have narrowed them down to the eight that I like best. From here I leave it up to you to help me decide. Please cast your vote in the comments portion of the blog and let me know which one should adorn our bathroom wall. Or maybe your answer is that none of them are that cute and if that is the case remember the classic one-liner from Bambi: "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." Just teasing-- you can say whatever the heck you want.

Pretty soon the towel was making him mad so I took it off and got a couple of pictures that I loved because look at how awesome his little fingers are in this first one:This one is kinda cute solely because you can see the chub of his arms and chest:
And seriously, though probably not bathroom wall worthy, this face is completely classic:
So do I go with a towel one because that fits the bathroom theme? Or choose a naked one instead? Please help. My future bathroom occupants thank you for your time.

Seriously liz...your baby is freaking cute as heck!!! i really like #1 an #5...but i can see why it's such a hard decision.

That is funny because I was also thinking #1 or #5 also. But I am leaning more towards #1. I love the one with his fingers together. It reminds me of Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Excellent.

Lizzie,

This is your dear mother. I am certain you know that the only possible proper usage of the word soley could be,"Hm, this fish tastes rather soley. I thought I ordered salmon. Oh well, sole it is."

I vote for #5, or the first naked one, based solely on his cute hands, face and nakedness.

I love #8! If you think there's too much towel you could always crop it before you print it. I love it as is though!

My vote is for number 5. Although, you really can't go wrong! He is such a beautiful baby. Good luck!

Channa said...

My vote is number 8 - He's such a cute baby!

#5

I love #5...I think #8 is precious, but the towel is covering up too much of him...but cute expression. I'd go with 5 though. He is precious!!!

5!5!5! Beth and I love it! Seriously little george is so cute i want to nibble his big fat cheeks.

Fabulous pictures! I vote for number 1 and apologize for not calling this weekend. We are leaving to go to Idaho... wahoo. But I will call when I get back.

i guess i'm going to be the odd one out.. i like 2 and 7.. but honestly it totally depends on what your decorative theme of your bathroom will be??? I mean, if you are doing black and white then the naked pictures would be really cute, but if you are using blue in your bathroom then the towel ones. So many decisions. You are a great photographer-- did you take photo in highschool or something? ;)

G&J said...

We like little grin on #8. That is our vote but he was hard to choose out of so many cute pictures.
