Day 77-79

Here are a few more pictures from our trip to the Bay Area. I opted for a few low quality phone pictures because even though the pictures are terrible they represent our days.

The only pictures I actually took here were the beach photos. :)

Day 73-76

Here's another set. We made a last minute trip to the Bay Area for spring break. It has been hard but I'm trying to limit my pictures to one photo per event. The first picture was supposed to go in my last post and I had the wrong date on the photo of Alison's boot. oops

I need to give credit where it's due. My sil Michelle took the cousins photo, and the family photo. Martin took the photo of Leda and I. Do they still count? I wanted to include them! And the "make new friends" photo used a Kelsey Smith Lightroom preset.

ETA That aquarium photo is a big fake. I had a picture with and without fish and I merged them. I really love the fish picture by itself but I so wanted a great picture from the day with all the cousins. The pictures I had with the four kids and the good fish had other people in it. I didn't mean to be deceiving. But, now I came clean so alls good, right? :)

Day 68-72

Trying to catch up again! Here are my pictures for last week. The picture of Maya with the sepia tone uses a Lightroom preset by Kelsey Smith. Regarding the photo of the medical bracelet, I have a photo of the other side with her name and info but that is too personal for the blog.

Day 60-67

We had gorgeous weather last week in the 60s and up to the mids 70s. So we had a lot of great playtime outside.

The photography issue I had this week was trying to get sharp photos of very close up items. I'm not really interested in learning much about macro photography but I would like to figure out why sometimes I have good luck and other times not at all.

The font I started using for the photo labels is Pea Luv Holly Wood. :)

Day 52-59

Remember me? I've been busy taking pictures just not posting. I'm skipping a few days so I can finish Maya's favorites project.

I haven't been putting a ton of effort into my photography, but I do have one photography question. I always hear about the golden hour, but whenever I try to take pictures when the sun is lower in the sky, I either end up with shadows if the girls' faces aren't facing the sun and if they are facing the sun, they end up squinty. Is this time a day not really meant for portraits?

OK on to the photos . . .

I even used my phone's camera for the first time. Useless for printing but I did get photos! :)
