Tuesday: A Little of This, A Little of That

Easter egg decorating, cupcakes, baskets, Easter egg hunts oh my. We had a wonderful weekend. The weather was fairly decent (around 50-60 degrees) so we actually got to go outdoors and run around. It really was a wonderful time. Not only were the kids sleepy, but the mommies, the daddies and the Grandma and Grandpa's too! Please enjoy a few of my captures for today. 

Shutter Love: Easter
Hmmm....where might the next Easter egg be hiding. Hannah really can please a crowd. We all would stop and stare at her adorable gestures. She is just priceless.

Simplicity: Pets
Meet Bones. If you have yet to see or hear about our dog he really is a great guy. He is a rescued dog and we love him. We have had him for almost 10 years now and our girls enjoy dressing him in necklaces, hats, crowns, shoes (you name it) and telling him what to do. He is either following them around or hiding from them. You might also find him sneaking snacks from the kids.

Touch Up Tuesday:
Original

Edit:
I still like the original capture, but I wanted to lighten the shot up a bit because of the shadows on their faces. I think it brightened maybe a smidgen too much. What do you think?

Photography love...

Sweet Shot
This shot is from late last week and I just love how Lorelei is genuinely happy. Her hair is a mess because we have been playing and running in the yard and she is simply happy. I usually capture the "cheese" smile from Miss Lorelei.

  20. Your little girls are so stinkin' cute I can't even stand it!! Oh my!! ♥♥ Gorgeous pictures; LOVE the bubble ones!

    I wanted to drop you a quick note about the MyPublisher stuff. (Thanks so much for your sweet comment by the way!! :-)) OK, I like MyPublisher, but I didn't want you to be disappointed by the quality. I guess i'm used to looking at bright, clean images on my screen, and when I got my very first book from them (last year), I was a little bummed. Then I realized that's just the way it is, and had to weigh the pros and cons of doing it this way, or the old fashioned way; printing out 4x6 pics at Walmart - LOL, and taping them into a book. Also, it seems like they bump the saturation on their photos, which makes some a little bright in my opinion. (Again, not something that would prevent me from re-ordering...just wanted you to know my opinion on that). I would sooo hate to steer you wrong. But from what I read, no one else's quality is any better...Blurb, Snapfish, etc.

    Also, the prices are good and the books are SO easy to make.

    OK, I hesitate to send you this link because it was from my blog last year (bad pics!) But anyway, here's a better look at what the books will look like.
