Happy Valentine’s

8 02 2010

This week at I Heart Faces it is a “Kissing” theme.  I thought of this shot right away.  One of my former students asked me to take her wedding pictures.  Once I got over the shock, that she was old enough to marry!, I was thrilled to take on this challenge.

Head on over to their site and check out all the other great kissing photos!

What candy? I have no idea where my basket is!

Our Spring Break is this week and the house is full of people as Chris took off from work this week, also.  He’s working on remodeling projects – so there is always a saw whirring, or a nail gun popping.  One of the kids usually has a friend over, while the other gets in front of a screen.  Today it is Ella.  She doesn’t want to leave the remote control.  Rarely do her older brothers let her watch the variety of princess cartoons, Hannah Montana, and Wow Wow Wubzy that she enjoys.  

I was working on my computer for quite some time and realized that I hadn’t fed Ella lunch.  When I went to find her – the above scene is what I found.  She wasn’t hungry for lunch.  Hmmm?  Go figure.

This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is “Spring/Easter”.  Go check out all the other Springy shots here!

Last fall, at one of my son’s soccer games, this little girl crawled into a green soccer ball bag and was having the best time.  She thought she was being so silly – it was hilarious.  I couldn’t help but grab her picture.

The theme this week over at I Heart Faces is “Green”.  This is my Kid’s entry.  Go check the other pictures.  There are a lot of talented people that enter these contests.

Here’s my entry for I Heart Faces – kids.  The white balance was SOOOOO off in the original picture.  I worship Photoshop!  It makes me look like I know what I’m doing.

I heart faces – black and white

This week’s theme is one of my favorites – I’ve been shooting/converting in B/W since I first started.  There’s something extremely beautiful about it.

For my kids entry, here is a shot of my daughter’s friend in a very pensive moment.
