WELL ... gotta say, it's a LOT more work to take pics of your OWN kids than other people's!! Maybe because they don't listen as well, or because I have less patience ... but whatever the case, I took the opportunity to snap a few "portraits" of my kids at the park. Oh. And try out some tricks on my new Nikon D300s *grin*.
I've never had professional pics done ... except for when Tias was a few weeks old and I got suckered in at Sears *ha!*. Oh - and Santa Claus pics too *grin*. But I've never done Walmart pics, or any studio-type photos. And I feel bad about that ... truly. I look at family portraits done and think, "hmmm ... should I do those??"
But it's not like I don't HAVE photos of our kids. And I definitely try to have a "group shot" done every few months ...
ANYWAY ... here are some of the pics I took at the park. People commented on how brave I was getting out of the house with a 3 week old ... I told them, "the park is a safe haven when having boys ... they go stir crazy inside!!"
Enjoy. ( And if you're interested, my official photography site is http://www.redhandedphotography.com/ ... think I'll have to post a couple of these there *smile* ).
