Just Some Pics and Opinions Requested





I don't actually have anything to say today, but wanted to post a few pics of Samantha that I took this weekend. Yeah, yeah, I know it's a lot of black & white and high contrast, but I like playing. That, and Samantha has become less and less cooperative about looking at the camera and smiling or posing. Not like I think that all of my photos should be posed, because I don't. But she's totally rebelling, and knows full well that I'm trying to pull out all the stops to get her to look at me with those gorgeous blue eyes, and knows full well what I'm doing with that camera in her face. She likes me to suffer once in a while.

Oh, also, I'm trying to decide what photo I want to use for our holiday cards this year, and have it narrowed down (barring any better ones coming before I send them out) to two different treatments of the same photo. This photo is of Samantha in her Halloween costume, but I think it looks pretty angelic. Please let me know which one you like better (or tell me if you don't like either of them...).

Beautiful photos! I like the second one better, but what do I know? I probably would like it even better in color because the dress is so pretty in your other post; even though the black and white is a nice effect.

I also love the first photo of Samantha in your post today.

Great photos, Becca. That Sammi is just so stunning.

As for your question, I prefer the second one as the first makes her look older. (just my thought).

I vote for #2, too.

Abby rebelled from pictures for a week when I had bought a new camera. The flash was too bright, so she almost tried to hide from me when I pulled it out! We returned the camera - but because I didn't like it, not because she didn't!

She is soooo sweet!!! yum-yum...OK back to the question...out of the angels...I would go witht the second. I have to say though...I LOVE the first one. She is so beautiful...which is hard for such a tiny one to be!
Good luck!!!!

I like the second one I think! an angel for sure!

Becca said...

Thanks, guys--it looks like you all had the same opinion of preferring the 2nd photo. I totally was going to go with the first one, but you've set me straight!

Pia said...

I love all of your pics. They are beautiful. What a gorgeous subject you have. For the fairy photo... I like the first one. Her face is angelic. What a doll. It makes me want to grab the camera and the kids and start snapping!

Michelle said...

She is too sweet. I like them both - #2 is probably my favorite.

You are very talented and Sammi is a beautiful little girl. If we were closer, I'd let you photograph John. Keep tacking those pictures - they change quickly.

Your daughter is so beautiful! I adore the 2nd one;)

Thank you so much for your supportive comments on my post yesterday, so true;)
