Tricky Photographing Children

In case you were wondering, photographing children can be awfully tricky. Yesterday I photographed 4 grandkids; 3yr old, 2yr old, 4mos and 3mos. Propping the babies was the most challenging but thankfully we had several adults to help. I thought these 2 pics were pretty sweet. Especially the first one.

Beautiful!!! I love them both--but the second one makes you wonder what's ahead because you can sense the anticipation of the older girl even though you can barely see her face--you can just tell by the curve of her cheeks she has a big smile on her face.

(And probably too because I would have to admit that I was the kind of big sister who would let my sister become hung up on a fence and I would still be more focused on whatever I was looking at ahead of me.)

Those are wonderful!! Did you make the edges darker? Was that w/ the camera or photoshop? Just curious and always trying to learn the new tricks......

These are great.

Beautiful. You have a promising career ahead.(In case you missed that in your last fortune cookie.) Have a lovely week.

Thanks for the kudos & the fortune telling.

bek-I've emailed you details :o)

And one more thing - since I'm blognically challenged - I don't know if I missed it or if I just can't find the logo and name you settled on for your photo/etc. business . . . can you help?

Dream dinners - thank you, thank you, thank you. It sounds like a dream come true.

P.S. nevermind about the logo thing. I went back and read your comments on the "Help Me With a Name" blog. I'll wait for the unveiling at a later date. See, I'm learning.

Melody, You're cute (blognically challenged) and practice makes close to perfect. The logo is coming; it's at the "shop" until Wed. The first round came on Friday and they SUCKED so bad I called and got the entire team (including manager) changed. PLUS, I drew up a mock of what I had in mind (I am pretty artistic anyways) and emailed it to them so there can't be ANY way that they'll miss the boat. I should've saved those 1st proofs. They looked like clip-art (which is good if you're using it in a document but not for a custom-designed-one-of-a-kind logo) and 3 out of 4 were primary red when I specified NOT primary red... geez. When I did the mock-up I almost figured to trash the whole thing & get my money back because I came up with something pretty darned good. We'll see what they bring me Wednesday. I'll post a separate blog for the unveiling.

Great job on the kid pictures! Since the pictures are always so good, you REALLY can't have a stupid, generic logo.

Thanks, lowla. No stupid logo here.
