Default First try at Portrait Work, w/22 month old none the less

Yes, I'm crazy! I was told these little guys will move around on you, but I had no idea how much!

So, today I took my first stab at some portrait work. I generally shoot sports and events/concerts so in the beginning I felt like a fish out of water.

I'm going to be delivering 10 or so shots for review it is tough picking which 10 to deliver. I'm fairly happy with them so far. Here is the first one out of the bunch. (He was predicting the ND victory over Tennessee today).

Mk2n w/50 1.4
