I Heart Faces - Slice of Life

I tried to get a good picture of my girls the other day but of course they never look at the camera at the same time, well sometimes they do but usually one of them is crying. Anyway, I happened to get this one and when I got it home I almost deleted it because it wasn't completely in focus. I had my mouse on the red X and then thought, man I really like their faces in this, maybe I can do something to it. So I played around and ended up loving it. I'm so glad I didn't delete it! And I think it's so much better that they're doing their own thing, rather than looking at the camera, so much more natural this way! I just had a big 11x17 framed for their room and it looks so cute!

I Heart Faces - Sun Flare

The theme this week is "Sun Flare". Now if you guys know me, you know I love a good sun flare and I had a lot of fun catching them during my fall photoshoots last year. That being said, I had a ton of sun flare photos to choose from. I sometimes add in a sun flare to a picture if it looks appropriate or natural but this was not added in. I love the naturalness of this photo and the expression on his face.

This is my talented brother-in-law Joe by the way. I did these photos for his website: http://www.joestansberry.com/. Head over there and check out his music and more of the photos I did for his shoot.

Also head over to http://www.iheartfaces.com/ and check out all the other sun flare photos. You're sure to be inspired by what you see! Thanks for stopping by!

Babies, Babies & More Babies

Last week I had three photoshoots, which is not unusual. The weird thing about all of them was that they were all newborn shoots. It was so much fun! I love doing newborn shoots. The first was with this beautiful baby Avery.

Next up were Owen and Maddeleine, the little peas in a pod! Isn't that peapod the best? Shannon Meredith made it and she does such a good job! Check out her Etsy shop here: www.etsy.com/shop/shannontheknitster.

And my last shoot was with Victor. Check out those baby blues! His hat was also made by Shannon Meredith. I tell ya what, she's talented!

I Heart Faces - Best Face of February 2010

I took this picture of my daughter Vivian while we were snowed in during "Snoklahoma 2010". The snow outside made the most beautiful light for photos in my dining room and Viv has finally started to let me take her picture again. She even let me dress her up and fix her hair and everything! So much fun! She's wearing my coat and headband, so maybe that helped a little. Anyway, I had to choose this photo because I think she looks stunning!
