The artistic side

I wanted to share a couple of my new favorite pictures. I was able to edit our camping pictures at my sister's house last night. She has a more updated version of the easy share software than I do and it has an effect called Spotlight that I have totally fallen in love with.

While we were camping I "coached" the kids into a couple of Kodak Cannon moments that I envisioned in my head. I wanted to try and capture a picture of the kids that resembled one I have seen of the live.laugh.pull your hair out family. The moment I saw that picture, I knew I had to have one like it of my kids. and here it is

I get such a great feeling when I look at this picture. It came out exactly how I hoped it would. It definitely shows the artistic side of photography that I like to capture. It helps that these darling siblings that look like they are off on an adventure with their big brother belong to me, but I also love it because they could be any kid. They could be strangers and I would still love this picture.

My second favorite "artsy" picture is this one of all three of them hanging on the fence. I get the old time feel with the sepia color, but I also think it is a great candid, un-posed shot. again, they could be any kid and I think I would still love this picture.


Yup, I'm bragging a little. But I am getting myself psyched for this weekend. I am taking wedding photos for friends this Saturday, so I am gearing up for the traditional as well as some artistic shots. I just hope everyone appreciates the artistic as much as the traditional.
