Family Pictures:

Melissa, who is an awesome photographer, granted Grandma's wish for a nice family group picture. Since we were dealing with a 6 year old, a 5 year old, two 2-year olds, two tired moms, an extremely busy dad/brother, and a gray-haired grandmother, there was no way we were going to attempt pictures at a portrait studio. Justin helped Melissa set up her camera, a Nikon D200. Boy that thing was intimidating! Melissa is so knowledgeable about how to use it while it intimidated me.

The kids just ran around while we picked our location and got set up. Melissa used a white sheet to take the reflection off our faces. Luckily the sun wasn't on us too much and the lighting was good. It was fairly difficult to get Jayce to sit down, so my mom gave him her camera to try to take pictures with. Funny thing... all of us either wore sage green or pastel yellow. And we didn't plan that at all! Anyway, my mom got her wish and we had fun modeling for pictures.

Jaina, especially!

  1. Great pics!
    Yes, you are insane to drive 12 hours to Florida with your mom and kids. I am exhausted just thinking about it. Your new house is so shiny and pretty! It looks like you have more space now, and that is good. It is amazing how much space two kids need. Geeze. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I like your blog.

  4. I am touched by your comments. I actually like your film pictures better. Doesn't 100 film ROCK! You should try 50 (if you can find it it :(

    I am going to try a new leaf this year. I am going to focus more on film and see which actually is more artistic? Film or Digital. I love the pics, they really came out great.
