new portraits

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We had a fabulous one here and the kids are thoroughly exhausted from a very busy past few days. I think we’ll be doing a lot of relaxing today!! Here’s some pictures I took of the kids this month. I wanted new pictures to send out in our Christmas cards and I also needed to take Camden’s 3-year pictures. I actually got so many great ones of both the kiddos, I had a hard time deciding which ones I wanted framed. Daddy did Cam’s hair and I can’t believe how my little guy looks like a little man! I just love the way they turned out and here is how I have them framed in my house:

You can see them bigger on Flickr if you’re having a hard time seeing them. I can’t post them any bigger on this blog.

LOVE these kids!

    Those are great! I’d love to know any photography tips you’d be willing to share such as what settings you use on your camera, if you edit the photos at all and how you get natural smiles.

    Thank-you so much ladies!

    Katherine – I usually like to shoot in manual, but sometimes shoot in aperture priority when photographing my fast-moving children. I edit all my pictures in photoshop. As for the natural smiles – I try to do funny things behind the camera to get my kids to laugh. It’s the laughing that produces the most natural looking smiles for my kids.

    Ann – that’s actually not my wall – it’s a roll of seamless photography paper on a backdrop stand. It’s thunder gray by savage. And for the hair, I am completely clueless about boys hair too. I think my husband just put a bit of water in it and spiked it up a bit. His hair is just usually kind of plastered to his head, poor kid!
