Having fun with Jackson

I wanted to finish up the stocking for Jackson and take his photos with some of his Christmas finery. Above is a shot with him and the little ornament I bought with his name. This is an example of using depth of field where the focus is sharp on the ornament and you can still see him though he is a little out of focus.
He turned six weeks old last week and he is really changing. He makes little faces at you and loves to make shapes with his mouth!
I cross stitched his name on a bookmark and am sewing it on a purchased stocking....with a little company as you can see. His Dad and Grandpa always loved a good Sunday afternoon nap! I am sewing the bookmark on and then I added some buttons.
Beside a sunny window is such a great spot for photographs. There is nothing like natural light! I folded up some new white towels on which to place him and bought the nubby throw to use for photo shoots. I figure I better tie in some photography tips rather than just being a doting grandmother! Many more outfits were photographed and will be shared!

What kind of crafting are you doing this month?
