i ♥ faces week 9 - creative crop

Update: How exciting!... My pic won eigth place at i ♥ faces! How fun!




Here is my weekly entry for the www.iheartfaces.com contest this week. The theme this week is “creative crop".

I really loved this picture of Ethan because it makes me realize how much he is growing up. He's not a little boy anymore. I loved the original, but I knew it could be better by cropping out some of the distractions in the background so all you focus on is that beautiful face and those amazing eyes of his.

Love the freckles! His eyes are the same color as my husband's. I call them "cat eyes". His look is so unique and handsome. What a stunner!
