2012/224: Vacation Family Portrait

You didn’t really think you’d see a “real” portrait, did you?? 😉
This was taken in Marquette, Michigan

2011/272: Mother-Daughter Fun (1)

At the Plano Balloon Festival a couple of weeks ago, Sara said that she wished she had a better camera than the little point & shoot. She was getting a little frustrated with it because everything was so far away, and when it got too dark, the pictures didn’t turn out well at all.
The following week-end, on a boring Sunday, I asked her if she wanted to go to her school and take some pictures with Melissa’s Nikon D70s (we didn’t tell her, and I just said I needed to borrow her camera. She didn’t want to go anyway).
So off to the school we went, for some FUN! Sara never even complained about the heat!
I switched the camera to Auto mode for her so she could just snap away without having to worry about constantly changing the settings, depending on which way she was facing, and it probably would have been a little too overwhelming for her to remember. And besides, this little outing was more about having fun, than learning something new.

First, I took a picture of her….

….. taking a picture of me

Then a fun little mother-daughter reflection portrait (hers turned out too blurry, unfortunately)

The shadow picture was her idea. While editing, I added the same texture to both.

That’s Amber on the left, me in the middle (silly me didn’t think to put the camera bag down!), and SkinnyMinnieMellie on the left.
Check out Amber’s and Melissa’s version of this pic!

Do These Pants Make My Butt Look Fat?

Would it even matter, considering one of my legs is bigger than the other one? LOL

When I took this picture, I wished I had a super wide angle lens, so I could get my shoes in  there, too. I think that would have been fun. (And as far as self portraits, this is probably as good as it gets 😉 )
