Mr. E. loves the camera. What can I say? His mom is a photographer. As soon as a camera or phone is pulled out, he is looking right at and grinning to high heaven. I couldn't get the same angle as the original picture idea, but I think they still turned out great!
Black and white...

I wouldn't call this a win. Maybe a so-so. My little guy was ready for a nap and didn't want his picture taken. Consequently, I only got the one good one. But, I think with some more time and better timing for the little guy, this could be fantastic. Good thing is, this requires no special equipment of any sort! I just laid him on his tummy on our bed and draped the towel over him. Normally, one would use a blanket, but his newborn shots were with this towel, so I wanted the age contrast.

My Mister E. isn't big enough to sit up on his own, which makes my choices for photo shoots pretty limited. You can only do so much of a baby lying on the floor, especially as it seems that half the photos are up the baby's nose!
But, I came across this idea and decided to give it a try. I have a few crates that came from my mother-in-law when we moved all my husband's books (well...not all.... like a tenth... yes, I married a nerd) out of his bedroom after we got married.
Score! These are some of my favorites! I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to find a cute way to prop baby up for another angle. Here's a few more shots of my little hunk...
That face, though!
Well, there ya' have it, folks! Another Pinterest success.
