Here you go – my monkeys at 11 months old. I don’t know what it is, but when I set them up in the chair each month, they get both excited and serious. Most of the photos are insane and/or blurry because they’re flinging themselves all over the place and I’m shooting in low light. But when they do calm down for a second, their expressions are so serious! This month they were really sweet with each other; they sat next to each other, often hugging or patting one another on the arm or leg. It’s so much fun to see them start to recognize that this other screaming, giggling, kicking blob is something interesting – perhaps even something just like me.
UPDATE: After I posted the first image, I started editing another one from the same shoot and think I like the way it turned out a bit better. What do you think?
