For Heather

This is probably the best baby photo I took of little Troy. I wish I would have spent a little more time with him while we were in Idaho.

mother + child

I didn't get as many good shots of Troy as I thought I had. Bummer. Here's the lesson: take more (many more!) frames than you think you need!

I love, love the light in this one.

and the black and white is gorgeous!

I hope you like them, Heather!

What a cute little family! We spent the week with Marsh, Emily and Tucker in their home. We had a great time! It was so nice to be able to spend time with our adorable nephew Tucker. Thanks for having us!

I'm starting to like sepia toned photos and this one is no exception.

And of course we cannot forget my favorite parents-in-law!

Stay tuned!

Family Week

Well, our Stake leadership declared this week "Family Week"... and the theme is certainly carrying over to our blog. I'm slowly getting through the many, many photos from last week's trip to Idaho. I am editing them in no particular order... just whichever ones strike me. :)

How fun is this one?!

And I did step out from behind the camera for a few minutes. Chris was gracious enough to snap a couple of Dan and me. Here we are!

I actually prefer this edit, slightly colorized.

Let's see what other fun I can dig up!

I'm on a roll...

Chugging along with the photos tonight. Here are some more. As you can tell, I am having fun with actions. :) Thank you, Pioneer Woman!

Heather and Monroe, these are for you. Let me know what you think. First one is "normal"...

(click any image to enlarge.)

Second one is what I like to call "70's Vibe". This is one of my very favorites of the day. Very retro and cool. Sorry little Troy wasn't cooperating. I have some better ones where he isn't making a squishy face. :)

Part 2: Jessica & David. I love this one of you two. Gorgeous!

Not sure how I like the B&W version...

Don't worry, there are lots more where these came from! But I am signing off for the evening. Sneaking off for some QT with the husband.

the gang's all here

First I would like to say that rearranging photos on blogger is more difficult then it should be.

Here are a few of the family photos we took in Idaho. I'm pretty happy with them for the most part, but of course there are always things I wish I would have thought of... but I guess that comes with practice.

Let me know which one is your favorite! (You should be able to click to make larger.)

I think the sepia tone looks kinda rustic. :)

[sneak preview]

Lots of editing to work through, but here are a couple quick previews from our family picnic last week in Idaho.

I just couldn't resist this one of my ultra-cute nephew Tucker.

And I rather like this action called soft & faded. It's from the Pioneer Woman.

More to come, I promise!
