Beautiful photos! I think her eyes look amazing! Great job! ;)

Kerry said...

I love your kids entry. I think the light looks perfect just the way it is! Great job.

Shae said...

Great Job! I always go b/w when the background bugs me... or i just put in a new one. Keep up the good work!

Sarah said...

Thanks for stopping by our blog. Your "novice photography" is quite good. Keep it up! Like another poster said, I think the lighting looks pretty good just the way it is. I love how children's eyes light up so much better than adults. Their eyes are gorgeous!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Her eyes are captivating! I love the second pic too. You captured a really sweet moment. Some of my favorite photos of my husband are the ones in which he is interacting with our kids.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Ps. I love the title of your blog! Mine are four and three years apart and even that was hard. Blessings!

Carol said...

Great shot of your daughter. You are NOT a novice anymore.

Beth@Pages of Our Life said...

Faints! That first picture just stole my heart. Great capture!

Life with Kaishon said...

Really great pictures. I can't believe how much you are learning : ). I love the your son playing with his Dad in the snow! SO sweet. And your baby girl! Well, I don't even have words for her adorableness! So sweet!

Jen E @ mommablogsalot said...

Both are great pictures, I think the first one is my favorite, I love her beautiful eyes and that adorable headband and oh well just everything!

Courtney and the Boys said...

Wow! These are precious!

I am a heavy contrast gal in B&W, too...I think you did a marvelous job on the child entry! The simplicity of the set up and the soft light are tremendous. And I agree, the snow does do better in B&W. Great entries!

Bryce's momma said...

Fabulous Entries! I love how the natural light captures her eyes and the flower is to die for! Love it! We have the same hat as your sweet boy. Don't you just love the pics of them with their dad? You will be in the top ten for sure!

Amy in Arizona said...

What a BEAUTIFUL picture!! She is stunning!!

Bryce's momma said...

lol Forgot to tell you that there is NO vignette. It just shadowed that way. I added one and it was way to dark. Look at the left side of the photo and you can tell. Too funny huh? I think that sometimes we are our biggest critics. i love the lighting that you are wanting to correct. The tones keep it interesting.....

kbreints said...

Oh those are great shots!! Love her headband... so adorable!

tollesons4him said...

These are beautiful pictures, I love the first one with her big headband. Gorgeous!!!

Teresa said...

Both are just beautiful! Your little one's eyes are perfect, with those lovely catchlights. That is a portrait to be proud of. And your hubby's and son's faces just show exactly the fun they were having in the snow. I love contrast, too! Great job!

EliseK said...

She is such a cutie!

Kate said...

I absolutely love both of these shots! Beautiful!

Ohilda said...

Both pictures are wonderful. I love your sweetie's look in the first one.

American in Norway said...

This shot is just PRECIOUS! Popping by via I ♥ Faces

Sharon said...

I think you did a great job on your lighting. :) Such a precious subject too!

ourgoldenchild said...

Your kids entry is gorgeous! I am really trying to figure out black and white as well...I really want to develop "the touch."

Dot O said...

Love this weeks entries of yours! She is beautiful and the shot with your son and his dad is adorable!

Liese4 said...

I like to do focal B&W. Pick a pink bunny, red heart and put it in the pic and then draw out all the color except that. I like your pic in plain B&W though.

A Psych Mommy said...

Those are both really great photos! Your kids are adorable!

drewmark19 said...

Isn't it funny how critical we are of our own pictures? I think the picture of your daughter is perfect. The side light helps accentuate the features of her face. Her expression is so sweet and....my! Those beautiful eyes. Very impressive photos!

Mary said...

Your daughter has such beautiful eyes and I love her cute little expression. And where did you find the headband? I can't find head bands like those anywhere. As for your adult entry, there is nothing like the snow that brings joy in little ones and, of course, their parents watching over. They look so content and overjoyed.

Elaine said...

Oh, I love them both. That one of beauty though, is stunning.

Rachel said...

Wow, oh wow! I love the eyes in the first picture, and the second picture is all about FUN!

jen@odbt said...

The picture of your daughter is beautiful. I hope you have that framed somewhere in your home.

angie said...

Crystal Rae said...

I want that hair bow... LOL... her big eyes and that big bow go hand in hand... what a precious little girl

Phatchik said...
