I Heart Faces- #16 Reflections

So here is another challenge/contest for the web blog I Heart Faces! It's such a fun site , especially for photog lovers like me! This week's contest is" reflections". I am sure I won't win with these entries but it's fun to participate just the same.
Here is my children entry. :)Maddyn kept looking at herself in the dishwasher and we would tell her to "kiss the baby"! So here she is kissing herself!!! Too cute!!!

I will enter an Adult entry when I figure out what I am going to do or I look through my 1000s of pics to find one I already have.
If you want to check out a TON of great pics...go to

I Heart Faces- Self Portrait entries

So this weeks challenge at I Heart Faces is a little different. It is SELF PORTRAIT. You have to take it while you are holding the camera. This is not the easiest thing to do especially when you have an SLR. Anyway, I am not super big on my looks these days but I did it anyway. The first is my self portrait Adult entry and the second is Self Portrait Kids entry (had to have a child in the photo with me). I didn't like too many of the adult ones I tried to do. I chose this one because the one thing on my face I like are my eyes and you can really see the color of them in the picture. So anyway- here it is:

Here is my Kids entry. I used a medium Vanilla action on it. I like it in the black and white. My 6 year old son is in the shot with me. He is such a goofball. You should have seen all the ones I took. Most of them he was trying to lick me! I think this one is cute.
Thaks for looking and if you want to see more great self portraits, make sure you click on the buttons above!

Easter Eggs painting

here are some photos of us making Easter eggs this year. RJ loves it! HE would do it everyday of the year if he could. Carley had Derek over that day and he got into coloring them too. He said he hadn't colored eggs since he was like 7!

I Heart Face- Amateur entry

I am entering this week's theme at I Heart Faces. It's Spring/Easter photos. Here is my girl or I should say my bunny outside in a basket. She loves the plastic Easter eggs and the grass. It was hard to get a picture of her actually looking at the camera. :)

Check out the other little bunnies at I Heart Faces!
