Giddy Up!

Felt like taking some outdoor shots before the long and dreary winter hits. Don't you love his tongue? It's a new thing he does ALL the TIME! Cracks me up, he smiles with his mouth wide open too, and that frown is so him. So perfect, I love that shot because it will always remind me of that sweet little frown he does.

I was asked by April Oaks, the owner of Digital Scrapbook Memories to help out with her Photography class this week. The lesson is on Natural light, finding it and looking for those Catch lights! Head on over here if you'd like to participate, the class is free!

Pure Sweetness

He is such a loved sweet baby, every time the kids get home from school they want to hug and kiss him and make him smile. Three brothers and three sisters make some pretty big smiles. Just feeling extra grateful today for my kids, the most fullfilling, wonderful things in my life. Used Colorful Kick.

My growing baby

Just a quick baby photo update. Boy is he getting chunky, I love a chunky baby. I'm exhausted, I've been going solid all day long and just finished helping my son with a rock collection, we had to identify all of his rocks. So I spent a few hours looking up rocks and trying to find pictures of the ones he collected. It was tedious, and I'm still not sure we got them all right. Ugh, I need sleep. I used the Subtle color preset number 1 and Colorful Kick on the color photo and light and airy bw from colorful kick action set. Also, right now there is a free digital scrapbook memories photography class going on, head on over, it's free and there will be alot of great photographers helping out! Link

My Girls

I took these the other night of my girls with their Parasol. The cute little dresses are handmade, I bought them from etsy here's a link if you are interested, I think she makes such cute stuff! Love how colorful they are, and how well made. Wish I could sew. I'm working on my website for the actions which will accept credit cards as well as Pay Pal. Hopefully I'll have that up and running soon, I'm excited about it. Loving the gorgeous weather right now, it's so perfect out and I'm looking forward to Fall. For those wondering I used my subtle color preset along with Colorful Kick action with this one. More later!

My Crazy boys and a family picture

Took these tonight, our first family photo in years!!! I have been meaning to take a family photo and it feels so good to have finally done it!! I got some cute ones of the boys, but the one on top here I love the most, just all the silly expressions. Top photo is using the Cocoa Shine from the remarkable set and the second one of our family was done with the light and airy bw from the colorful set with the BW depth added, and I duplicated the BW depth layer too darken the shadows a wee bit more.

This smile brightens up my day. She is so funny, when she gets in trouble and I'm scolding her she says, "but mommy! I love you!". She is almost 4 now, boy it's gone fast! More soon!
