It only takes one

When I got Eli dressed this morning it was in one of my favorite outfits - an understated apple one-piece from Gap (OK, from a second-hand store for me, but the initial owner got it from Gap). I happen to have heaps of green apples at the house, and Eli's been needing a photo shoot for a while, so I set up a quick background and got to it. Patrick wanted in on the action - he was working hard to pile all the apples back into the basket while I was working hard to keep him out of the shot and keep the apple pile looking strategically disheveled. When Eli got grumpy, I swapped in Patrick and had him do what he did best - eat the props. Although I took about a gazillion (in actuality, about 50) photos, only a few turned out, but all you really need is one of each! But I'll post two anyway :)




I liked the decolored look, especially for Eli since his outfit colors are so muted, but I also enjoyed the pop that the green apples give. What do you think? Favorites? Tips? Want to babysit? ;)
