Beach Portraits 2012

I'm not happy with the ones for this year, but it's my own fault. We stayed at the beach longer during the day which meant later naps which meant by the time they got up we were losing the light. Then add in a grouchy 2-year old and a baby which meant I was losing my patience...oh well, you live and learn! So I just tried some different actions to help with lack of light. But I'm never sure what exactly to do to make it better and I don't want to spend lots of time on them. So this is what I got.

Now really no light...just turned it on Auto with the pop-up flash (GASP)!

2012 Easter Portraits

Yesterday evening I attempted to take the kids' Easter portraits. Here's the best one... Photobucket
Although this one is more of a typical pose: Photobucket
The boys
The girls...Melody was not too happy about taking a picture
Luke - he's easy to take pictures of although you sometimes get the fake smile
Cameron - pretty easy too, but I think the 2nd one is more him but I didn't get him centered well
Miriam - most of hers were the same...more of a fake smile, but then I got some more natural ones but her hair was more messed up
Levi - you never know what you're going to get

Micah - oh the drama!
Cole - I was lucky to get one where he was somewhat looking (although it's kinda blurry)
Poor Melody was not in a good mood, so I'll have to try to take some of her on Sunday.

This or That Thursday–Hawk & Train

This morning we were on our way to a fieldtrip and I saw this bird sitting on a realtor sign on Burbank. I assume it is a type of hawk. I had my camera next to me in the front seat and the light cycle was taking a long time so I was able to change to my longer lens to zoom in more.
While we were waiting for our fieldtrip to start, a train drove by and I was able to capture it. It wasn't till I uploaded the pictures that I realized that I captured the engineer waving at us.

This or That Thursday - Micah with hat, Cole's book about God

See I can't even get these up on Thursday and I don't necessarily like the quality of either of them. I hate taking pictures inside my house. I never can seem to get the settings right. But I thought they were cute enough to share.

Micah was playing with these tangram shapes during school time and she put the bucket on her head. Of course, anytime I go to take her picture she wants me to take 3 of them, because she's 3 of course!
When I was putting my camera up, Cole climbed onto to the bucket of books and grabbed this book "to read". He just looked so cute. It was a little blurry so I thought that the sepia made it look a little better.

This or That Thursday - Cole & Chalk

I want to try to do more with my photography than I did last year. I became such a slacker! But I don't know how many opportunities I'm going to get with a new baby on the way. Deb has an opportunity to share any type of photos on Thursday called "This or That Thursday". I love Deb's photos and thought this was something that I could participate in when I had the chance.

So here's my picture for today. Cole writing with chalk on a Thursday afteroon. He's the baby right now, but not for much longer. So it's great to capture these photos. They grow so fast, don't they!

MCP Project 12-1 ~ Resolution

My resolution is to read through the Bible in a year. I took a similar picture of this same thing last year for a scavenger hunt. I got further along last year than I did in 2010, but I still never made it all the way through. My kids took my Bible outside one day and lost my paper that had where I was in my reading and I couldn't remember. Photobucket

MCP Project 12

Since we ended the Mommytography 365 project last year, my photography has been on the back burner.  I didn’t think I could do a 365 project this year with a new baby coming in February.  I thought about doing a 52 week project, but still didn’t know if I could keep up with that with a new baby, homeschooling, church activities, etc.  However, this year MCP is doing a Project 12 which allows the participant to take a month to take a photo or multiple photos based on the theme. I figure I should be able to keep up with this.
