Willette's Joy of Love - Days 1 through 5

I have undertaken a month-long challenge by Willette Designs entitled, The Joy of Love.  In typical fashion, I am a few days behind...  Here are days one through five:

 Day 1: What They Do- our assignment was to capture our subject doing, simply, what they do.  We bought Caleb an amazing train table for Christmas, and he so enjoys driving his train around the tracks.  He's quite serious about it, in case you can't tell.

 Day 2: How They Look- our assignment was to capture the TRUE essence/expression/attitude/posture that SCREAMS your loved one!  This cheesy grin is just... Caleb.

 Day 3: Then & Now- our assignment was to capture the difference between how our loved one looked when we met him and how he looks now... to truly get the essence of the changes that have taken place.  One suggestion was to have the subject hold a picture of himself "then"... after several attempts and zero cooperation, I happened to snap this shot as he threw the "then" picture on the ground.  Little did I know how much I would LOVE it!

Day 4: What They Wear- the assignment for day 4 was to capture my subject's clothing, on or off of him.  These are Caleb's everyday K-Swiss sneakers.

Day 5: What You Love to Hate- the assignment? Capture something about your loved one that drives you NUTS... if not a physical characteristic, something that embodies the idea.  One thing that drives me bananas is Caleb's ability to completely tune. me. out. as if I'm not in the room.  This facial expression pretty much says it all. :)
