Finding the Catchlight

You know the term "baby blues"? Something about that description makes me think about those big ol eyes looking up at mama and for the first time recognizing her face as a familiar safe place. And there is just something about those eyes that I want to always remember....that excitement for learning and that naïve love for life doesn't last forever.

I recently learned a great trick to make sure those big, beautiful eyes can stay with me forever - FIND THE LIGHT. Find a space that is naturally bright and get at an angle where you can see the light reflecting from those eyes - this is called catchlight and will make eyes pop in your picture.  It's so important to create a tangible reminder of these fleeting moments.
