Flash back Friday: Aug 26 - Sep 2

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have all had a good week!

I encourage you all to take a few minutes to share some of your favorite shots from the last week. If you were too busy or otherwise removed from your camera, don't despair - we'd all love to see some of your favorites from ANY time that you'd like to share.

I hope you all have a great weekend. And to those in the US, enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

Best,
GiGi

Whoop Whoop! THREE day weekend! I NEED it!

This week I just did a few quick shots.
Ruthie on the swing:

Ruthie's FIRST homework paper!

And my nephew is turning seven!

Can't wait to see others!

Sadie, Ruth is seriously SO cute! And I love the shot of your nephew!

I've only taken one picture of my kids all week (I think). This one is just a quick snap, but I still like it because she is so pleased to be wearing her brother's Spiderman pajamas, and for some reason (incongruously) she wanted to be Spiderman with a horse:

And DH kindly let me go out to a local botanical gardens by myself the other day with a tripod JUST so I could get this shot, which I had not been able to get on previous visits without a tripod:

A couple of the other shots I took at the gardens that day are in the "textures assignment" thread.

Sadie! these are so awesome! I love the one of Ruthie on the swing and your nephew is just too cute too.

As for me, I hardly got my camera out again this week, but I did have one shot I'd like to share:

This is the billboard I was telling you guys about a few months ago. The folks who designed it didn't pick my favorite photo but I'm still beyond psyched to have one of my photos on display in this manner. Biggrin

I am REALLY hoping to get some pics of Logan this next week. He's started a new soccer season, is getting ready for another judo test, and is rockin' his new 4th grade class as well and I really want to capture that. So hopefully next week I'll have something more timely to share. Wink

Best,
GiGi

just some snapshots of my kiddos. I can't ever get more than snapshots of them since they are so aware of the camera.

I do however love this one of my girl...

Aww! Sadie, I LOVE Ruthie...she is so adorable!!
Tracy, your daughter is the envy of THREE small boys in this house! Haha!
I so love that your husband let you go take that lovely picture...definitely worth it! Beautiful!
Gigi, that is SO awesome! I would drive by that sign every day if I were you. Wink
rcummings (sorry i don't know your name!) I love both shots, but the one of your girl is especially adorable! Love the red/pink skirt and how it contrasts with the green, also like the angle.
IronMate (again, sorry!) what a beautiful sunset silhouette pic! And Kindergarten...sniff sniff...my oldest will also start on Wednesday. It's so sad! Great pic though!

Great photos everyone! I'll have to try to come back to comment on everyone's when I have a bit more time.

Here's what I've been up to this week:

Carson had his first day of school yesterday! (Taken with my broken lens, so please ignore the distortion and blurriness...)

And I think Jackson wanted to stay...

We found a praying mantis in the back yard. The boys loved it!

He's getting so freaking big!

Lauren those photos are gorgeous! I love the maternity ones. I've done a maternity shoot with the husband, and one without and the one without was so much more difficult but those are awesome!

Thank you Smile It was difficult to think of poses while I was doing the shoot. Next time I think I might draw little pictures on cards, or write the pose ideas down.
