Field Day

It's been a while since I've done photos of my little munchkin, Madeline. She just seems to get bigger every day and the wild words coming from her mouth never cease to amaze me... take this morning's conversation for example: we were casually doing our hair, getting ready for the day, crammed close together in our small bathroom and she says:

"I look like a girl.."

Me: (misunderstanding) "What?? You look like a gorilla?"

Madeline: "No, of course not!" Then, ever so sarcastically... "Do you look like a bear?"

I just looked at her, and let out a huge laugh. Her wit gets me every day! Oh to be 4 going on 18....

Cheers,
jewels

These photos are gorgeous! What kind of lens do you use? And what kind of settings to get such phenomenal DOF? How do you get the effect that you have on the first photo? It almost seems like there's different layers, or opacities, or is this from a texture, or a specific DOF? As you can see, I'm totally captivated by these pictures!

Deb said...

April said...

She is too cute for words. Of course I am a little prejudice. Keep up the good work with the photography. I would like to see more of this special little girl. I love you. Softy

I love you and your family. She's breathtaking. Combined with that wit she's bound to break some hearts (and maybe give you some gray hairs). :)
