Photo of the day: Little angel

Sometimes you capture an image that just makes you smile, deep down in your toes. This is such a shot.

This is the son of a good friend of ours, whose candid portrait I captured during Vacation Bible School at Bethany Lutheran Church. He just has that perfect mix of Angel an Dennis the Mennis, doesn't he? And I love the shallow depth of field, with the eyes and mouth and nose in sharp focus and the rest of the image in blur, and the beautiful catchlights in the eyes. Best of all, this is entirely natural light, which gives the skin such a wonderfully soft tone and color.

It's one of my first photos with my new Canon EOS 5D Mark III. I'm going to love this camera, I can tell.
