I loved this photo the minute I saw it on my monitor.
This is our first grandbaby. Our only grandbaby.
This is Crew.
It still amazes me how I instantly fell in love with him.
I don't think I ever had so many pictures of my own three kiddos and I have never been a fan of family pictures everywhere but sometimes there are moments or expressions captured that I never want to lose. This was one of those moments.
My daughter who has her own photography company, Clicksmith Photography, took this picture while they were visiting us this summer.
I love the subject matter, love the photographer, and I was really happy with mpix that processed the print for me.
The composition of this photo reminded me of Andrew Wyeth's painting of Christina's World.
I remember liking that painting when I was in school. The idea of the subject matter looking into the distance and the perspective this allowed is intriguing to me.
So when I saw this photo of Crew, I knew it was one that I would need to frame.
I went with a simple and inexpensive frame from Home Goods that allows me to easily change out the photo as our little man grows and changes but it might be awhile before I change this one out. It has that timeless appeal and looks right at home on that sea glass painted wall.
I don't want too many pictures, but this might be a sweet complimentary piece framed on the nightstand?
