18 Month "Portraits"


Photo and video editing at www.OneTrueMedia.com


I decided to put my photography skills to the test this last Saturday and take Steven's 18 month pictures myself instead of going to a studio. He's just not the sit-still-and-smile-for-the-camera kind of kid, and we like outside shots so much better. We took Steven to a duck pond-- ducks are one of his favorite animals and he enjoys quacking everyday. It was the hottest it's been this spring in Houston (low 80's) so we changed him into shorts before we hit the playground. His cheeks are a little flushed from all the activity. It's also allergy season here- pollen count is cray high- so excuse his runny nose. The montage is only a little over two minutes and the better shots are more towards the middle with pics of Steven and I at the end. I have so much more respect for professional photographers that will take pictures outside-- the lighting is tricky!

Hey Laura,
All of those pics are so cute, you did a fine job @ taking the pictures, you don't need a professional. I like that song that you used, very fitting. I hope everything is going well.

Steven is getting so grown up and hansom. The pictures look great but with a kid that cute I'm sure it wasn't that hard.
