Enjoying the Last of Summer

Today we took the kids in the canyon and hunted for some good spots for family pictures. I'll be taking some for Ken and Babata's family here soon and wanted to scope it out first. I also got to play with some new actions I got in photoshop and I love them. :)



Keep in mind, Kanyon (of course) has a bandaid on his head for absolutely no reason and is fairly grubby... and he wasn't really excited to sit with Dad and pretend to be my "family". ;) I'm considering using this picture for his 2 year old one... I mean, that's Kanyon in his everyday boyishness, right??


Boyishness. Is that even a word? :P

Sweet! Now i just have to get jim on board with the family pictures. j/k- he knows we need them. what time do you get out of church on sundays? is a sat or sun or diff. day better for you? what time is the best lighting (i was thinking 4ish- but i wasn't sure) Thanks!

Meghan said...

Dest - Well, the best lighting is either before 10am or late evening, like after dinner... 7ish probably. (You're not fighting the harsh sun with lots of shadows) I'm thinking morning though only because there would be no way we'd run out of light. Just in case it takes more time, you know? So, maybe a Sat. morning sometime... Let me know what you think!

Meghan, I think you may have started something by posting that you're doing your friend's family pics... :) You take the best photos and have the coolest angles, backgrounds, and lighting. I would love it if you would do ours. Only if you're willing :)

Can I just say I really love your photograpy skills. I hope you don't think I'm some weirdo for coming to your blog even though I don't even know you. You just honestly have one of my absolute favorite blogs because of your photos. I have been looking hard at getting the Nikon D40x, but you are pushing me toward getting your Cannon because your photos are so beautiful. Even your indoor photos always turn out so bright with nice lighting. My indoor photos always look so awful.
Anyway, thanks for letting me sneak in to view your pictures. You have the sweetest family. Your little boy reminds me SO much of my little Jackson, I bet they'd have a blast playing together... if we didn't live on opposite sides of the country...

Hannah - Of course I would be willing to take your family pictures too. :) I'm still totally new at this, but it's fun practicing on other people than my own family. Email me with an idea of when you would be wanting me to do them!

Lillian - No way I think you're some weirdo! :) I'm totally flattered that you visit my blog. I love my Canon... but I have some friends that love their Nikons too. I would recommend going somewhere where you can play with both in your hands. Get a feel for which one suits you best. :) I'm sure you'll make the right decision!!
