Shooting For Others....

I've never really done a 'photo-shoot' for anyone before ~ not properly.
I've snapped away at family & friends at every given opportunity, but this was different...
These are friends of mine, but they wanted pictures for a purpose.

How did I do?

I'm not quite done with the editing yet ~ I want to try my hand at some head swapping in the group shots, but I need to take the pictures into PSE to do that and I just haven't yet.


My Friend has said she wants colour pictures, but I couldn't resist editing the odd one (or two) in BW also.

As well as the portrait-type shots, I also took some others.

(these next few are hosted on Picasa, so the quality in-blog never looks as good as when linked to a Flickr image)





I hope they will be pleased.

Communal Global ~ "Around the World" ~ Egg Hunting (or not)




Once Upon A Time...

A Mummy took her children to find the local Easter Egg Hunt,



but she couldn't find it :-(



Thankfully she lived in a very lovely place,


So her children had fun anyway...


Instead they found pretty flowers 


and listened to the birds.


Then they headed back home


 ~ it was hot & they were in need of chocolate!!

Black & White Wednesday

the long road

I've been trying to do 52wk of Solomon to document his first year.
He was 17wks on Tuesday, so it was picture time.
Everyone wanted in!
This was the moment I said "everyone on the bed..!" 
Mistake #1

Mistake #2... 
Solomon had already had enough by then!
I ended up handing him to biggest bro' and just shooting this mottly lot!
