The "Grand" Scheme of Things
Capturing the "grand" in granddaughter is easier said than done. Don't get me wrong. They are truly grand. And they are truly cute - if I do say so myself.
But it's not easy getting natural-looking photos of a 3 year old and a 6 month old.
Kinley is at that age when telling her to smile creates a facial expression just short of a grimace. It's better to capture her unaware.
Brooke, on the other hand, is often more interested in her toes than the camera lens.
And then there's the whole lighting issue - too much direct sunlight, too many shadows ... so much to think about!
And I could never seem to get the camera angle just right.
Where, oh where, is PhotoShop when you need it? (Thanks to a Facebook friend, I played around with Windows Live Photo Gallery and attempted to "fuse" a couple of photos. It's going to require some more practice, but it was still fun to play with. Thanks, Mary!)
So, we will just have to wait for Emily J Photography's shots. Kim F's Photography did the best she could as an amateur.
And, while we were at it, Jill took a Grandma and Grandpa photo so I could update my Facebook page. Brooke changes so quickly that we should take a new one every time we see them. We are blessed!
