Month: March, 2011
It is too much fun keeping my camera by my side ALL day long with my family and shooting everything that made me smile. WAY too much fun. Like I could do it everyday. And that would be the only thing I would do. No laundry, no dishes, just shooting and laughing and loving it all. So I guess its a little unrealistic to think I can spend everyday like I did last Saturday. Boo. But I do want to try and do it at least once a month, and hopefully spend a few hours with other families capturing the same moments for them. This is a little Saturday morning moment. Love that the light hit his one little dimple just so (and helps me ignore all the clutter in back.. ugh.. we’re packing, so its ok 😉 …)… and that Duckie is on his lap. Sweet, sweet boy.
I’m excited to see everyone else’s slices of life… go brighten your day at I Heart Faces!
Any minute now it is going to warm up… and stay that way. I noticed that Chicago, IL and Wilmington, DE are both much warmer today than we are in the Central Valley. Now that is just weird. My cuties aren’t complaining in these images, but in other shots and between shots, they were cold. And hungry. And tired. 😉 Good thing sometimes the camera just brings out the goodness of their hearts, going along with Mom’s strange plans and requests to play board games outside and look at each other and actually smile… I know they really did have fun, though, even if it was for a few brief moments. Someday when its warmer, we’re going to make a whole family date day of playing board games outside while having a picnic. Can’t wait. 😉
Sun flare can make for some AMAZING photography images. I have had fun playing around with sunlight and the affects it can make on an image, but I still have so much to learn and practice — which makes me excited! Love experimenting with my camera ;-). This week’s I Heart Faces sun flare theme gave me an excuse to get out and do that! I have one of my favorite photos ever that I took about 9 years ago of my daughter — it was taken with film, and it is of her dancing in our backyard. Then I had no idea about sun flare or how to use it to my benefit, but I was completely giddy when I got my prints back from that roll and found the gorgeous photo of her holding her sweet little tutu and this perfect sun flare appearing next to her face! I will have to post it sometime… but for now, I’m sharing this one. Same sweet girl, but a little older… We played around with the sunlight this weekend and this is our favorite from our little shoot — the flare is subtle, but pretty just the same ;-).
Can’t wait to go see all the other entries and see all the flare! You should go be inspired, too: click here!
So I may be a little biased, but this girl is gorgeous. We had a little fun (well, I had a lot of fun… my kids would say otherwise…) out in the last of the evening sun last night. We were trying not to make it obvious that she has a huge cast on her broken arm… she hid it well ;-). And even looked amazing in the process.
