ABC Challenge: week 10

Photography tip


I thought it would be great to share some great spots to go to get really great family pictures. I put the question out on facebook and Danielle suggested the Arboretum.  I am embarrassed to say I’d never been!  So Sara and I decided to check it out.   Trees, shade, open spaces, river, flowers – what a gorgeous gorgeous spot!  And even without particularly cooperative subjects I got some great photos!! (I also would recommend this is a great spot to bring your kids just to run around and explore and run off energy 🙂

She looks sad, but it kind of makes the photo I think 🙂

Down by the river

No kids, but I love this.

So much room to run and run!

I could have done an entire post on just this place – we may have to eventually. I didn’t even tell you about squirrel town!

Next week – Mackenzie King Estate

My two picks for this week

H is for hugging – these are the moments that make it all worthwhile…. until the strangling and hitting starts 😉

H is for hugging

N is for night. – I was so excited to get a sleeping photo of him. I used to be jealous of sleeping photos because I would never risk waking my kids by taking one. And now he’s an awesome sleeper and didn’t budge when I took half a dozen photos of him 🙂

11 : 365 N is for night

    Thanks for a great morning! We had so much fun and I’m really happy with the shots I got. Now I need to remember (as Tyra says), ‘find my light, find my light’…

  2. Oh, love ALL the shots this week, but that one of your group hug and Lilypilly’s gorgeous portrait — lovely!

    (Thanks for choosing my future hogg rider, too!)
