Edit Me Challenge: My First Try!

So I stumbled upon the Edit Me Weekly Challenge today and was totally intrigued by this. It is a weekly link-up for people to take a photo and give it their personal touch through editing. This week, Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming shared a picture of her beautiful baby boy, and although I don't think he needs to be edited (this little guy could be a real life doll!) I decided to give it a shot!

Challenge Edit: 

He is already a darling, so I tried to keep the essence of the picture the same, but I'm a total sucker for black and white so I just had to switch it. I also used a smart fix type edit to make it look a little clearer. I cropped it, added a black and white layer, let the eyes and some cheek color show through, and finished it with a lens flare. I really hope you like it! I'm still new to editing photos and I look forward to practicing some more next week :)
