Here are the last few pictures of Rachael and some of Courtney. I finished just in time to take some more this weekend. I am going to try the railroad tracks this time and I am going to take Courtney to the swings. Thanks for looking! See you back in a couple of days.

February 23,2009 -Late, Late Post

We went to the Crawford Boys Playoff Basketball game tonight. We had a good time chatting with friends and watching the game. So, I didn't have much time to edit tonight. I am so tired but I want to get these going before I go to bed. Here they are....

Thats it for now! See you tomorrow!

Leah is home sick today. Throwing up and all the other good stomach ailments, so I had a few minutes to upload these pics before I try and head to work. I finally got her settled down and asleep so I am hoping she stays that way for a while. Here are a few more from our photo shoot at the arboretum. I will do the rest tonight when I get home from my meeting.

I took Rachael the Aboretum to check out the scenery and the lighting for when Andrew comes. I want to make sure I know when the best time is and all that since he will not be so patient. I LOVE taking pictures of Rachael. The camera loves her and she never complains. These are just the first few(hundred) HA! I will get the rest up tomorrow!

Now, She is beautiful when she smiles, but she is breathtaking when she doesn't--look at this one now--the rest will come tomorrow! I think the eyes ARE the window to the soul!

February 21, 2009

Well, I have not even taken a shower yet and it is 3:00 in the afternoon. Don't judge--it doesn't happen very often and when it does, I am taking advantage of it. Besides, I will spend the evening up at the high school helping out with the Spring Fundraiser--BINGO! woopee! I should get some free time--shouldn't I??

I am going to think of it as research. After all, I am going to TRY and make senior pics for Andrew-right?? So, I have been working on some b/w photos and some tinted photos so I wanted to share so you could tell me what needs improvement and what would look better.
Here they are:

I love this photo. They were just walking along and I yelled for them to stop. They look so serious--but I think they were annoyed because I was taking yet another picture!

This was at the Japanese Gardens in Oregon. I wish we could take him there for his pictures!

Yet another one from Oregon!

and another. They had the most beautiful flowers there. I guess when you get rain, that happens. I actually didn't even have to edit this one. It is SOOC! Just added the border!

My Favorite!
I used an aura to lighten the center and make it look as if the sun was shining on it!

A red tint.

An orange Tint to give it almost a sepia feel....

And one more from Oregon-It really was so pretty there!

Let me know what you think and I will keep trying my hand at it! I really need some more portraits. I wish it wasn't so cold outside--Maybe tomorrow!

Maybe if you have some you can send them to me so I can practice.
