Florida Trip: A Photo Shoot with the Cousins

While I was in Florida, my sister and I were determined to get at least one good picture of our kids together. 

By good picture I mean, all three kids looking in the same (or similar) direction and not screaming.

We wanted to capture our babies and we wanted to document this time for my mom and dad as our three kids are currently their only grandbabies!

Laur and I are hoping that Katelynn and Justin add to the clan in many, MANY years.  After a throw down of a wedding, Southeast Louisiana style, of course!

I am by no means a professional photographer.  I am simply a mom who wants to capture memories of my family!  My sister is also a photography hobbyist so we decided we could get a few good pictures!  We met up in Ocala Saturday morning in hopes that the kids would cooperate.

We were working with a 4.5 year old, 2.5 year old, and 9.5 month old.  Miles (the 2.5 year old) is currently obsessed with picking his nose.  It made things interesting.

However, we accomplished our goal and got a few decent pictures!  I haven't gone through Lauren's pictures yet but here is what I captured!

I am in love with this - and I am very critical of pictures I take - so for me to love an image I shot, and edited, is HUGE!

Another cute one - I guess Graham and KK were occupied by something else!

We also got some wonderful pictures of Mimi in action!!  Thanks to my friend Maxine for the amazing black and white edit of my mom and the kids!!

Four people looking at the camera?  Success!! And how good does my mom look? 

After the pictures of the kids, my sister asked me to take a few of her family.  I was way nervous because, let's face it, I'm just a mom with a fancy DSLR.  Thankfully I got a few cute pictures of them!

The same picture cropped!  And my first attempt at a custom black and white conversion!

You know, just your average family walk!

I'm so glad that we have these memories of our kids hanging out and having fun!  My trip to Florida was so wonderful - and I can't wait to head back in October! 

I've still got pool fun to blog about - maybe tomorrow!
