This situation did lead to a new years resolution of sorts - only of sorts because it didn't formulate properly in my mind until about ten days ago. Basically, I've set up a folder in the My Pictures directory on my computer and into that folder I am determined to place AT LEAST ONE decent printworthy photo of EACH of my boys for EACH MONTH of 2011. I aim to also put in about half a dozen group photos of the boys.
This way, I will always have a photo pool to draw from for photos of the boys. I can use these to print up for family and friends (each year I print up a poster collage of photos of the boys for my parents and ourselves - I actually forgot to do this last Christmas, mind you).
It's also a project to get me back in tune with my camera - to say I've become rusty is an understatement! So, here are the photo for January. Let me say it again, I'm VERY RUSTY!!!
|I call this Bryn's "Barbie smile" because it's completely|
plastic and painted on!
|Here, you can see a glint of his stubbornness!|
|My beautiful soulful boy!|
|Lukas is my "gracefully pretty" child. This completely|
belies his personality!
|Can't you just see him doing Shakespeare???|
|Erik's cheeky, playful side.|
|Erik's sensitive side.|
|I'm so tempted to nickname him Cyclops - he does|
love this haircut though!
|This is not actually a picture of Ari - if you follow|
the focus, you'll see it's a photo of "Buddy"
our co-sleeping bear!
|The Cheeky Brothers.|
|Ari scrutinizes - everything!|
|This smile always reminds me of one of my Aunts...|
|I really need to work on my focal depth - one|
of the drawbacks of not having stereoscopic vision.
|Great pose - terrible lighting, terrible bed hair!|
