A couple of weeks ago I took some photos for an old roommate of mine from Rick's. It has been about 9 years since I've seen her and she looks almost exactly the same. Pretty impressive for a mother of 3! Three real cute kiddos at that. It was really great to see them and be able to spend some time catching up and getting some family photos for them. A HUGE thanks to my friend Stacy for filling in as my assistant. I am sure Jeremy was relieved to have a break
Here are a few of my favorites:

Thanks for your patience with these, Suzanne. CD will be in the mail soon. I hope you like them!

A Different Angle

I don't get to experiment with my photography as much as I would like, since motherhood is a full-time job that I feel completely immersed in at this time. And I am happy with that choice...very happy. But, I have tried to take opportunities (or make them) to improve my photography skills while being so immersed.

If you wonder how to make your photos more interesting, just try different angles. It is amazing how much a different angle can make in the exact same setting, with the same subject.
(Not the greatest photos to follow, but the subject overshadows the quality...right?)Classic, front angle. Cute girl...Kind of predictable photo.

Side angle...a little more interesting, I think.

Ahh, isn't that nice?
This was my third and final shot for this experiment. I quit while I was ahead.

So, next time you pull your camera out, try a few different angles and see what you come up with. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Chubber bubs

This is my insanely cute nephew. My only sister delivered her first son (after having 2 girls) scared out of her wits to have a boy. That is all forgotten. She is completely smitten. Who wouldn't be??
This kid can pack a punch. He is 3 weeks younger than my little princess and weighs at least 5 pounds more and is probably a good 2 inches longer than she is. He's a lover though, not a least for now.
