I ♥ Faces Week 16 - Kids Category "Reflection"

I loved this is a picture of my mom (Mimi) looking out the front storm door at my daughter (Sweet Pea). Mimi was telling Sweet Pea an exciting story and I just loved the expression on her face in this shot.

Notes to myself on taking Family Pictures

I took some pictures of my good friend and her family yesterday and as I looked through the pictures I had a few ideas about how to make improvements next time.

  • The pictures of dad looking at baby are much better than the pictures of dad looking at the camera:
  • The closer the subject is to the camera the better.
  • The closer the subject's faces are together the better.
  • Carry a cloth to wipe drool and dirt off of babies faces.

I ♥ Faces Week 15 - Photo Challenge (Adults Category)

I tried taking a self portrait with my new camera, but apparently my arms aren't long enough. :) I only have one lens and I couldn't get my face in focus at such close range so I had to use an old picture. In this one, I had been playing around with my daughter and trying to get a picture of us together, but took this one of me alone too.

I ♥ Faces (amateur category photo entry)

I just got my first dSLR (Nikon d50) and have only been playing around with it for a few days. It is so much better than my old point-and-shoot! I started this blog just so I could enter the I ♥ Faces contest this week.

I took this picture of my Sweet Pea in her Easter dress at my mom's house. I loved the atmosphere and her expression. Everything looks so new and peaceful.
