Happy Halloween 2011!

Baby Walter's First Halloween!
Hi Everyone & Happy Halloween 2011!  For those who have been following my project, I so appreciate all the wonderful comments and suggestions!  I actually made it into the October project of the month finalists on my fave design website, Project Nursery!  There's about 32 hours left to place your votes, and Walt's room is in second place.  I know, right?  I need your help now, so if you love my design please go vote now!  It is super easy and only requires a couple clicks.  No registration or sign on necessary.  Just scroll down the page and go to the poll.  You'll see "Walt's Tropical Oasis" on the list, just click on it and then click the "vote" button.  It's that simple. 

Thanks so much!

My DIY Photo Shoot!

Please VOTE for me!

I kept trying to do this when he was a lot "newer", but these were taken at 5 weeks 5 days old.  I prepared the crib with his blue blanket from his MawMaw, and dressed him in a comfy white sleeper before I nursed him to a deep deep sleep!  I placed him in his crib after he fell asleep, and crossed his feet and placed his hand under his head.  That's about all I could do without waking him, so I just started shooting.  I have an old 2003 Olympus 5 megapixel with wide angle.  Nothing special.  The key for all you DIYers is lots of natural light and a steady hand.  I have lost my tripod, but I just steadied my shot with the crib rail.  I set my camera to "no flash", and this was the best results for the time of day and the abundance of natural light my nursery gets.  I love him and I love these pictures.  I think I will do a weekly photo session :o)  The hat is from etsy: BostonAveBabies
