Fall Photo Shoot

I was honored when Danyelle asked if I would take Abby's photos for her baptism. They came over on a gorgeous November day and while Abby was putting on her dress I snuck outside with Oliver to snap a few pictures. Take two very cute kids and a beautiful fall day and this is what you get...












Now if only my kids would be so cooperative when I go to take their picture!

Amy, I just LOVE those photos, they are soooo good. How did you make Oliver smile in every picture??? I like the black and white from Oliver. You just have to love such chubby little cheeks. Great job!

I love all of those pictures. How do you get them to look so professional? Is it all camera or is photoshop a factor? I think my camera is decent, but I would like to know how to get some of those finishes for my pictures.

Very cute kids too. :)

Beautiful work there Amy. I wish someone had thought to take pictures of me for my ever important eighth birthday.

Em and Ms said...

Those pictures are so beautiful! I know what you mean with your own kids though...it never works that way.

Every set of pics I see from you looks better than the one before! We have GOT TO get over there for some pics of OUR family!! :)

Kristen said...

Amy, these are great photos!!

I LOVE it when people ask me to take pictures of their children for them! It's a blast and fun to shoot a different subject. I would think Cayman would be appreciative of that but wouldn't you know, she insists on being a camera hog. For example, when we went to the African Safari on Sunday, I was taking pictures of Ashalyn, the other little girl with us. And Cayman started to fuss and complain until I turned the camera on her. Cracked us up!

Oh and by the way, you might find this website to be very fun

It's where I found some of the photography articles I mentioned in today's post.

Cute pictures! All the ones of Abby are so beautiful and I absolutely love the one of Oliver with the leaf!

Kinda funny you had this post today. I woke up thinking that we needed to get our pictures taken for our Christmas card soon and was thinking about who could take them and I thought of you! But I'm sure you'll be booked now that everyone sees your awesome work! :)

GORGEOUS! I love them all, that black and white one of those cheeks! He is so big already! Oh my word, so perfect! :) I love the little tiny blue cast! It makes my heart hurt for him, its so cute though! At least its not summer I guess, could you imagine trying to keep him out of the water! Abby looks so grown up with that long pretty hair!

LKP said...

ABSOLUTELY stealable! =) I'll post an update with the andy warhol campbell's soup can i destroyed too! feel free to use however & whenever you like...i wound up tossing 1 sm can mushroom soup into a little basket with 1 big can of green beans & a can of french fried onions, along with the card which featured the new & improved warhol on the front, and the attached magnet on the inside (double stick tape helps hold it in, though you could create tabs in inside of the card to slide the magnet into if you'd rather). run wild with it.

LKP said...

update's official, so there ya have it. i can always email you the files if you want them. =) let me know.
