Priceless

I just love these two babies.
If one and three count as babies.

Brother G and Sister C

Wow. 
Isn't this girl pretty?
She is such a sweetheart.

And look at her brother!
My son LOVES these two.
He is always asking to go play with them.

Baby Ro

Those pretty blues belong to my baby Rosalee.
She is coming up on 9 months.
Really?
Wowzers.
It goes fast.
One tooth.
Who only gets one?
And that red hair? It's going to curl.

Baby C-- 5 months old

This sweet boy is 5 months old. 
He was so kind to come and let me practice { snapping } their pictures.
Both my babies stayed blue.
It was so fun to look into these pretty dark eyes.  Just like his Mama's.
I forget babies eyes change color.

Dressed in white: baptisms and blessings

This sweet girl got baptized a member of
last Sunday.

The same day her darling baby brother blessed.

I learned something while photographing them:
I love taking pictures of 8 year old girls.
Old enough to pose and love every second of getting photographed.
Young enough to not be embarrassed.

In short, a dream.

Daddy Walks


Every evening as soon as dinner ends all we hear is
"Daddy walks? Go on a Daddy walk?"

Dad is always willing to oblige.

be in a picture twice--without photo-shop

Looks tricky, right?
It really isn't difficult at all.
Using a tripod, set the shutter speed on your camera to be between 10-15 seconds.
{Depends on how fast you can write backwards in the air.}

Start with a dark place.

Press the shutter release.

Use a flash light to write your message backwards in the air.
--The light should be facing the camera.--
--Be sure to turn it off between each letter.--
--Don't stop to think with your light on.--

If you want to be in the picture:
 Pose, then have someone flash a light on you for 1-2 seconds.
--The person behind the camera flashed a light in the first two pictures.--
--The person in the picture did in the last one.--

Be sure to hold REALLY still.
{I was moving a little too much in that first picture.}




Be careful, if you get too much light you will drown out your letters.


Not enough light and you will look like this.

Loving my new bed.

I know I just posted a similar picture on my regular blog,
but they took a little bit of work, so I wanted to document.

It's raining and raining today (Hurricane Alex didn't hit directly, but he gave us a storm)
and I didn't like the look of the overhead light (shadows)
so it was pretty dark when I { snapped } this picture.
