This little girl was about 6 weeks old. She is adorable and just starting to smile and show her burgeoning personality. The session started late and it started to rain. So much for natural light. Refusing to use a flash, we got a little creative with shutter speeds and iso settings.
I had a teacher in high school that we affectionately called Mr. O. This little guy here though doesn’t have a beard and doesn’t teach listless sophomores about details of Modern European History. This new Mr. O has only been around for about two and a half weeks. Isn’t he adorable? It’s usually hard to keep a newborn awake for longer than thirty minutes, but this sweetie stayed awake and alert the whole time.
So, I am sitting here in the kitchen of our lake house at Smith Mountain Lake and editing photos before the kids get up. Here are a smattering a photos from the vacation so far. There may be more tomorrow if I get my bum out of bed early enough.
This is my first entry in i heart faces Fix-It-Friday. Since I haven’t done this before, I didn’t realize that they wanted step-by-step instructions and I didn’t keep track. So, next time, I’ll be more attentive to my steps.
I enjoyed this exercise, taking a nice, but drab photo and turning it into something nicer. I hope I did that. Enjoy. SPL
I couldn’t get together with her until today. I have been avoiding all household responsibilities to get this in on time. Clair Bear here loves the color purple and was more than willing to oblige my happy snapping. Patient until the end, she made it so easy for me. So, check out the entry…
I took the kids on a field trip the other day, because it was 102F outside and I wanted to do something fun, but indoors. We have been having what feels like record-breaking temps recently. I’m sure that there’s some Nino/Nina something-0r-other to explain the wacky weather.
However, for our outing, we decided on the Virginia Aquarium. It’s recently renovated with many more interactive exhibits for the kids (and parents, too.) Yes, I touched the snake, too.
