It is a magic combo, isn't it! Cute son BTW!!

I like the images very much.

I think the next 'challenge' may be to get some 'eyes-on' shots possibly - photos where baby is looking at us (into the lens). This may require an assistant, or using the A7 one handed (while holding Teddy, jangling keys, etc. in the other hand).

Please keep up the good work and post some more images!

Thanks for your encouragement, I really appreciate that!

As for the "eyes-on" shots, I tried something like that a couple of weeks ago, although I must admit that you need a lot of patience for that (also as the autofocus as not the fastest...). This one was originally taken as a colored image, then post-processed via LR4. With regard to the expression captured I am very happy, however, not so much with respect to the overall composition. In my opinion it would have been better to have positioned the head to the right side...
