Favorite Photo Friday: A Windy Day

2.24.2012

I do apologize that I haven't shared any photos of the kids in a while.  Before this photo shoot, it had seriously been a month since the last time I photographed them.  Pathetic.  Shame on me.  I love to photograph their precious smiles.


I just haven't had much spare time.  So we had a rare break in the hustle and bustle of our days last week, and I thought I would whip out my camera and snap a few shots our little dumplings.

After putting Madeline down for a nap, I went outside to read while Caleb played some basketball.  That's when I said "Hey, forget the book and get your camera."


Caleb has been playing a lot of basketball since he got his hoop at Christmas.


He is such an athletic little guy.  
Because of the brachial plexus injury to his left arm, he shoots one-handed and does a pretty darn good job with it, too.


Caleb was so patient with me as I interrupted his game to take some photos of him.  I just love this series.  I guess he got a little tired. lol.






Madeline finally woke up from her nap, just a wee bit cranky.




However, after showing her the photos I took of her brother and asking her if I could take some of her, she decided to join in the fun.

Still a bit tired though.


And a bit cranky.


Really, though, it was the wind she wasn't a fan of.  And boy, was it windy!  I think it was gusting to 
25-30 mph!


After bringing her back near the garage (these were all taken in the driveway), she was a tad bit happier.


This focus is a bit soft, but I just LOVE her lips in this shot.  




I tried moving her further away from the garage because the light was better.  Then she complained that she was so cold.  It was like 80 degrees.  




Anyway, it was fun to get out there and capture some sweet shots of the kidlets.  I've already told myself that I need to do a better job of photographing them this next month, no matter how busy we are.

Have a great weekend!

I love Caleb's tousled hair...awesome. And the pics of your sweet (cranky) daughter...too funny! I've seen those post-nap looks plenty of times around here. Takes those girls a bit to wake up! Adorable.
