Quarterly Top 5 (or maybe more)

Time, once again, to link up our favorite photos of our kids from July, August, and September hosted by Courtney @ Click it Up a Notch, Amber @ Amber's Articles, and Sarah @ NapTime MomTog.  I had a hard time picking just 5 ... especially since I have 3 kids and a dog.  So I included my favorite photo of each child from each month.  'Cuz I can.  :)

{Keira & Honey - July}
My sweet girls.

{Keira - August}
Keira Aug
First day of school.

{Keira - September}
I just took this photo of Keira on September 28.  I can see a definite improvement in my portrait photography skilz.  :)  That is one of my week spots.

Nick is my toughest subject.  He's very animated and doesn't usually like to be still very long for portraits.  So I try to capture him in action as much as possible.

Nick Sept
Nick reading a Star Wars book.  He's into Star Wars big time right now.

Alex is becoming much more cooperative when trying to get a portrait of him.  He loves looking at pictures of himself in our scrapbooks and photo books, which is definitely helping.  :)

{Alex - August}
First day of Kindergarten.  He was so excited!

{Alex - September}
Alex Sept
I know I just posted this photo for the Shoot & Edit challenge ... but I absolutely love it!

{Honey - September}
Poor thing just wanted to nap and mom kept taking pictures of her.  :)

{Honey - July}
July 28
Keira actually took this photo, and I love it!

So, yeah, that was way more than five photos.  I hope you don't mind!  :)

You're a wonderful portrait photographer! You capture everyone so well. I'm tickled they will allow their picture be made. Matt only puts a hand over my lens {sigh}. After 21 years, I guess he's tired of all the attention. :(

Wow, they look so different month to month that you'd almost think they were different kids...

Amber said...

So many smiles and so much fun going on! I love it.

The one of Alex in September really caught my eye. I just love the colors, his eye contact with the camera, and his sweet grin.

Wow the detail on the last picture of your dog is breathtaking with the bokeh background!

Sarah said...
