Iheartfaces! B&W!

Capturing the souls amongst the wild flowers!  This is my first entry to I HEART FACES!  This is such a great website!  There are so many inspiring photos.  B&Ws are my FAVORITE!  My favorite photography quote is "When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!" ~Ted Grant  No truer words ever spoken than that! ;)

The Special K's!

I want to thank my friend Beth for having the patience and understanding.....of Crazy Jack tagging along!  I'm sure he was pure entertainment for your children!  ;)

I was EXTREMELY impressed how cooperative everyone was!  Of course, I would expect that from your oldest 2, but the little guys were rather enjoying themselves, weren't they?!

Your kiddos have GORGEOUS eyes!


I love it when kids act like.....well, KIDS!  ;)

Funny thing....I didn't have to tell him what to do at ALL!  He's a natural.  Beth, you should get him in modeling.

Some old photos...

This is one of my all time favorite photos that I took 4 yrs ago.  I was at Ryan's USMC Boot Camp graduation and we had the privileged of walking around Parris Island.  At the time I had a great little Point-N-Shoot Canon.  It just goes to show you that you don't necessarily need a Fancy Pants camera to get a good shot.  You just need a creative eye.  :)  One day I will find a great photo contest to add this too.  :)  These poor recruits were getting screamed at by their drill Sgt. while the other drill Sgt. stood and watched.  I'm sure they hated me....standing there with my camera photographing what was probably one of the worst days of those poor recruits lives!

We were waiting for the Ferry to Coronado Island and I thought, "Hmmm...This looks like it might be a cool photo."  Well, it turned out even better than I hoped.  :)

Capturing a silly moment....is not hard to do when you're with Jack!  He was talking to himself in the mirror at this little dive in Santa Fe.  He's very entertaining! They say photos are worth a thousand words......Well, Jack's are worth a MILLION! 

Love this silhouette!

Another old photo.  This picture.....PRICELESS!  I think I got a little too close!  HA!  He looked aNgRy!  Grrrrrr!  And those poor recruits would NOT look at anyone!  I think he had eyes in the back of his head too!

The "N" Family!

Ok, so these first 3 photos are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES, so I had to put them first! Their EYES could put you in a trance!  :)

NOW, I want to say THANK YOU to the "N" family!  You guys made it so easy.  

MR. MAX!  He is a character!  He reminds me SO much of my Jack.  And let me tell you....What a HAM!  He was loving it!

He kept telling me, "Take a picture of ME!"

He was havin' a blast!

And here's sweet little Ethan.  He had turfed it the day before scraped his poor face up. :(

He wasn't too sure about me at first.  I have that effect on people.  :/

HAHA!  I just LOVE this look he's giving me!  This is Zachary!  His face is saying, "Whatta YOU lookin' at?????" 

ADORABLE face! :) 

Finally startin' to warm up a bit.

Z-man just wanted to play in the sandbox!  Is that too much to ask!?  LOL!

I LOVE this!  Too sweet.

This one is my favorite of the two of you.  :)

And of course, I had to throw this one in.  The twins had HAD ENOUGH!  And I think mom and dad did too!  LOL!  You guys are great!  Thank you!!
