Here we are at week 28 of 52 for the weekly photo challenge. Last Sunday we got to hang out at the beach with friends and family and I got to take a few photos with my iPhone. My camera was nicely packed in my bag waiting to come out to play, however, my busy brain forgot to charge the battery. Yikes! Luckily, my iPhone was there to capture a few precious beach moments. These kids are definitely beach kids, and I right there with them, watching from under the umbrella.
Cloudy skies and a very wet weekend made it quite a challenge to take some great shots for this week's photo challenge. Below are the best three I could get from each kid. Did you manage to take any photos last week? I have challenged myself to take one picture of the kids every week. If you want to join the challenge post your kids photos on IG and tag #weeklyphotowithtrendypeas so I can see your photos. Random moments, theme portraits, playground photography, weekend scenes, anything works.
My Christmas cards are finally done! I am sharing here some of the best photos from our little photoshoot. I am not revealing the one I chose to use on the cards; that would spoil the surprise for my family and friends. Here are my three cuties, trying to lay still while I ordered them around from up the stairs. They heard things like: "Hold Victor's hand", "How about a smile?", "No, we are not done yet", "Guys, come on, one more", "Marcus, stop sucking your thumb". It was quite interesting. The preparation for the shoot took way longer than the actual few photos I was able to snap. I dressed them up in somewhat coordinating colors. I chose navy blue, white, gray, and red. The red on Victor's pants set the tone for the typeface that I used on the card. They had a snack right before the shoot. Nothing like chocolate chip cookies to make my kids happy. And then it was onto the floor. The solid brown rug was the perfect backdrop to create a clean set-up for the photos. I loved how it turned out. The final card will be posted here on Christmas day. How about you, do you take your own photos or are you lucky to have them professionally taken? Do you want to share your card? I would love to see it.
