well I started the challenge with a snow and tree picture so I thought it was fitting to end it with yet another snow and tree picture!! This was taken right out of my cul de sac at the creek that runs by my house! Taken hand held from the car cause it's too cold to get out!!!

Here is a picture of a picture (ha ha!) that my boys worked on together to paint for me! Does it matter that the leaves are tree leaves on a flower? Not to me it doesnt!!! I have a hard time keeping all of their art work so I've begun to take pictures of their pictures then combine them into a monthly collage or something smaller than keeping the hundreds!! Especially the ones with noodles or something on them that bugs may enjoy!! So after I display it proudly for a little while and get a picture of it then I dont feel so guilty getting rid of the original!!

Sorry, I had absolutely NO creativity today!! I was choosing 100 proofs from the wedding (out of 500!) so I'm a little sick of looking at pictures and trying to be creative, so here is a picture of the book we read tonight!! My kids all love The Littles books, from my 4 year old to my 10 year old!! I loved them as a kid too so it's a good "quality" time thing we can do!!!

I made the boys pose for Valentines shots today, before my birthday roses died!!! Here is Zachary... he's my tough one to photograph so I'm actually kind of happy with this one! I didnt have to fix his chapped lips and he actually has somewhat of a natural smile!! The lighting looked better before uploading? I do struggle with getting his hair lit but keeping the backdrop black but in the big version you can see more of his hair? Oh well here he is!!!

Well I tried the pink paper again today and turned the lights up. I also tried it with the backdrop light but that was too much... one part of the drop was white and the rest was pink! So I shot with just 2 lights one on each side, a soft box on the 800 turned to about 1/4 and the 400 with a bounce umbrella turned up to almost 1/3? here's my results... I am happier with the pink... it looks a little peachish here but actually the real one is pretty pink? The boys are watching "Facing the giants" so I only took the time to upload one picture!! If anyone has not seen that movie I would highly highly recommend it as probably the best movie we saw in 2006!! Loved it!!!
