Photographing our little toddler can be challenging.. he is constantly on the go and doesn't really care that I would like for him to play in some pretty light by our living room window.  I have learned, however, that I get the best photos when I let him do his thing and be himself.. and sometimes bribe him with chocolate!

When I am processing and editing photos, the first thing I do is something called "culling". During this process, I go through each photo on my computer and flag it as a "yes" to keep or a "no" to get rid of. Seems kind of harsh but considering I have taken thousands of photos this year alone, it is necessary. Culling helps me to build a story with photos as well and sometimes that includes "blooper" photos. I cannot help but save these little gems!

To me, bloopers are photos that either have something really goofy going on (this happens A LOT with our little guy) or they are technically imperfect (out of focus or bad composition-thank you quick toddler!), or both!

So, for your entertainment and to give a little "behind the scenes" look at some of my photos from my 365 projecthere are some of my favorite bloopers of our son from the past 6 months. ENJOY! 

 He was SO excited to run around at the park last fall.. we could hardly contain him!

 Self portraits are hard.. and even harder when you throw a toddler in the mix!
