Oh boy, was he mad when we wouldn't open up the "Brewster" train he got from my parents for Christmas! Problem was, there was a duplicate in the train set they also bought him. This was the face he made. Sometimes things are just hard for a 2 year old to understand Sad

My canvas came yesterday!!! It's 30x40! Huge! But looks perfect up above the fireplace.

I have quite a few from this week. I'm really struggling with shooting in the snow and processing them. I'm having a heck of a time with focus too...jeeeeeez. Anyway, here they are Smile

great shots girls! Stephanie, that pout is adorable and that canvas needs a post of its own!
Katie, love the swing shot and the 2 close up shots of your boys!

2 from me. Damien (my 4 year old) has asks me every day when our local icecream shop will be open again cause it's closed for the season. The other day I told him we were going for a ride and drove 30 min out of town to take him to the next open icecream shop. He was pretty happy about it lol

A quick shot outside on the same day. Not what I was going for but he did not have his hand in front of his face so i'll take it:)

Steph ... I just love Jackson's muscles! SO CUTE! And your canvas looks amazing too. From where did you order it?

Katie ... sledding looks fun! I love Rykken's smile!

Tia ... that second shot is to DIE FOR! Such great light in his eyes! BRAVO!

I'm REALLY flashing back today! Logan had a belt test at judo last night. He was strong and confident and just down right amazing. Even his instructor couldn't get over it. And it got me to thinking about his very first judo class. Below is a pic from last night along side one from his first ever class. Where oh where does the time go???

Best,
GiGi

Holy Cow Gigi - Logan is all grown up Smile

Steph that is a nice canvas shot. I have not tried that company - I use WHCC.

Tialee - great shot.

Katie - I also like that second to the last picture. I think color-wise its great!

I will post tonight - I have several phone pictures only since I am at work..

Typical 2 years old pose I usually get when I point a camera at him

This is the canvas I just got back from WHCC sorry it's dark... my DH picked this picture in particular because we had another canvas of our oldest in the same PJs.

Gigi, how sweet! I am totally stealing your idea and framing Tyson's 1st day of wrestling next to him wrestling now! So what comes after blue? It's been awhile I forgot.
El, I love that your taking pics in the grocery store. We need to have an out and about thread where we all post pics inside a store doing our normal routine Smile

Loving everyone's shots.

Tia can't believe you had to go 30 minutes away to find an ice cream shop, guess Canadians are crazy we have shops open year round (unless they are at a beach). The one (not at the beach) in our city has over 40 flavours.

Here are a couple of snaps of 3/4 of my furbabies.

Sadie & Apollo - Apollo is 7 months now and bigger than our 6 year old dog.

Mal - I took this to try and get a recent picture of his thumbs.

Steph - The canvas looks amazing above the fireplace! Oh and I just LOVE the pout, but I am a sucker for serious/moody photos.

Katie - looks like everyone had fun. I wish it would snow here, the only snow we had last winter was ruined as all my boys had chickenpox. Love the second shot.

Tia - I would have that second shot made BIG!

Gigi - Awww, look how small Logan looks in the right hand pic.

El - LOL at the 1st shot....doesn't get much better through 3 or 4 in my experience! Love the canvas!

Amanada - You're furbabies are cute and Love the cat with thumbs!

This week I have been playing with my flash a lot. Although this 1st pic is natural light.

Awesome canvas, El!!!

Love the animals, Amanda! Are they all getting along well?

Kerry, I love all of them, but especially that last one. It has such a "mood" to it. Are you on Instagram? I'd love to follow you if you are. Again, so glad to see you around again!

Not Friday anymore...but I took a few shots of James on Saturday.


IMG_8429-Edit WEB by amberbella, on Flickr

Okay...I missed focus a bit and chopped an arm, but I don't care. My husband made this difficult with a lot of moving around. There are lots of shots that are in perfect focus and composed better, but I just love the look on James' face here.

IMG_8397-Edit WEB by amberbella, on Flickr

James learned to walk! Hooray! *sniff*

IMG_8454-Edit WEB by amberbella, on Flickr

Handed the camera to Rich for a sec and he grabbed this one. Again...focus is COMPLETELY off (I should know better than hand my husband a camera that is set to shoot at f1.8, LOL), and I hadn't brushed my hair, but I love it.

^^^^^This!!!
I love seeing all of y'all's shots!

We were all sick this past week.... It's been a long time since one of them has passed out in our arms. DH was sound asleep too. Neither of them woke the entire time I was taking pictures. (SOOC)

Then later they decided to decorate Daddy's leg with the stickers they got from the dr's office. Smile Just a snap, but I thought it was funny.

Amanda, my son would LOVE the icecream shop by you. Cute furbabies I photographed a dog the other day and it was harder than I thought.

Kerry, I LOVE your style. Great shots of both your son and that tree! I could see a shot of your son sitting on that hill with his back facing the fence(but not right up to it) and his knees up with arms relaxed on the knees looking at the camera to the side. Do you live right near that area? It's beautiful!

Amber, I have not seen James in awhile but his foot looks great! so cute!

Danielle, cute sleeping shots. Sometimes when I see your shots I feel like I want to pull back the camera but just a tad. I like a tight crop but would like to see a shot or 2 from you with just a bit more area around the subject. Like 1/4th of an inch more than you have now. Does that make sense??? or maybe it's just the resizing to post??? still very cute shots:)

No it's not the resizing. I feel the same way sometimes. Mostly I think it's because of how small our apt is with the fact that I use my 35mm prime lens. A lot of times I can't get myself any further away without hitting a wall or furniture. Other times its because there's toys or such that clutter the background and I don't have time to clear them out of the shot-- or I move it and one of them moves it back, lol. We are having a house built and should be moving around May. I hope the extra space will give me some more freedom. Thanks for mentioning that though. I like knowing I've been able to pinpoint some of my issues others can notice. Smile

Well hopefully it warms up sooner cause outside always works for more space. You could also open your ap up as wide as it will go to blur out anything in the backround:) I miss shooting outdoors so bad! wish spring would hurry up!
