My husband and I got the chance to go to Cancun Mexico for a vacation this past week. We left our two boys with friends and had some good couple and family time. All of the family went without kids. We missed them, but enjoyed being free for a week. Here are my first round of pictures. These are what you might call my 'artsy' shots. It was so beautiful there. Hope you enjoy.

Aren't these three kids so super cute?! Of course all the kids I take pictures of are cute, but these are extra special to me. I learned so much by taking their pictures. Going into their backyard with them I had ideas galore. But I have to say that trying to get 3 little children in one shot is difficult. Having the perfect light, exposure and composition is one thing. Getting them all to smile in the same shot is another. This being said, I know I could take lots of time photoshopping one head in for another, but that's not really my style. I really like to get it right (or at least try to) the first time. These kids were troopers. All my ideas pretty much went down the drain when I started trying to just get them together... but I learned that when you have an idea, write it down, and you can possibly move quicker into position. I am working on my memory. Maybe I need some Ginko Baloba. I am sure I spelled that wrong. My college roommate used to say that all the time and it always made me laugh. With that, I give you Liam, Isabelle and Emery.

This picture is probably my favorite one of baby Emmett with the exception of the first picture in the previous post. He looks so snugly and sweet. I was playing with different looks and wanted to get your opinion on which look you like the best. Black and white, a lighter faded color, or full color. Don't hold back. :)

Yesterday I shot pictures of little baby Emmett. He is such an adorable baby. His older brother and sister kept my children entertained and we got some great shots of him. I felt a little bond with him too. What a cutie. There are so many pictures I could post, but I will try to be brief. I love babies!
I just think this is beautiful. It shows the true love and adoration a mother has for her child.
Big sister Lily wanted to play too. She was a good sport and can we say photogenic?!!
Thank you Amanda for the opportunity. You have such a beautiful family!
