A little boy's (almost) smile

He's shy!


and a sweet little girl's crazy curls...

These made me smile today.

Linda lets me borrow her kids from time to time, to amuse myself from behind the camera. I love the open, unguarded faces of children. I love these particular children for their brown skin and laughing eyes, for the babytalk we share in Spanish, for the silliness they're learning from their mom.

What a pair of cuties!

The nice thing about borrowing kids is that you get to return them. Nice pics!

I like that idea a lot. They are sweet. Are they aware of the camera yet?

Nice pix. BL brings home ones like that for awhile now and then too.

I have a long piece of paper taped on the wall and I measure them all now and then. They like to see how they have grown!

Nice shots. The shy boy shot is particularly well done.

(And you claim you're not a real photographer! Pfft!)

So so sweet.
Lucky kids, too, to have a loving mother AND a loving "aunt."

These are beautiful children- and photos. We have a wee one in our extended family of friends with this same coloring and she is just stunning. Nice that you can take them out on loan!
