(I’ll be taking a photo of Calvin sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also took monthly photos of his sister, Eleanor, and his brother, August.)

*A technical note on the photography: I had been using my 24-70mm f/2.8L lens for these photos. It’s a very nice (and very expensive) lens, so I’ve been trying to force myself to use it more often. Today, I shot with the 35mm f/1.4L lens, and yep. Still my favorite. Still the best I’ve ever owned. If you’re looking to invest in a Canon lens, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    Thank you for sharing the tip. I am always curious about what other lenses photographers use. =)

    p.s. Love the once a month shot. Even though my kids are a bit older it would be a good tradition to start.

    I love photo series like this. He’ll love to look at these when he is older! Good work.

    Curious – what makes you like one lense over another in this scenario? Cute baby btw!

    Calvin is so adorable and he looks like a peaceful soul. I look forward to these photos each month and love to look at E and August’s also. Such fun to see the similarities and the differences in siblings and the nuances of their personalities at each stage.

    Just so adorable, how are his brother and sister responding to being a little displaced by a new star of the show? They are so sweet they probably aren’t even jealous
