Hope you don't mind, Jeanie... :)













































































What a lovely family huh? That's why I couldn't help but post some. Even though it was right after church and we had like a fifteen minute window and the sun was SO bright and overhead... they're the Deans, only one of the cutest families I've shared a city with. Both of their older girls are part of Achievement Days which I get to be part of for church, so they come to my house every other Thursday for an activity and end up feeding and bathing and entertaining my kids the whole time. They're incredible. The kind of girls that constantly make you wonder what their parents are doing to make them so cool. And how at 8 and 10, (or so) they seem smarter than me--so nice and confident, and together-- and then you watch them interact as a family for like fifteen minutes and tell the parents to kiss and the dad says "with tongue or without?" and the kids kind of make yucky faces and kind of just laugh---and you tell the girls to kiss their little bro. on the cheek and he wipes it off, but there's clearly, CLEARLY just SO much love. It makes me thrilled at the idea of my family growing even more...

A couple of things...
> The idea of your family growing more... does that mean your thinking or doing? :)
> What lens are you using, and are you shooting in raw mode?
> Awesome photos! You've got the talent.

Talk to you soon, B.

beautiful pics!
This is so reminds me of us ( two older girls, little boy, then... will it be a girl next)?

Yes what camera and lens do you use? We have a NikonD80 (I think), just starting to get into the hobby, when I can steal it away from hubby's hands.

We are also big fans of the Deans. Funny thing is, I don't think you exaggerated one single thing.

What a darling family. You're so good Lillie. You need to start your own photography business I'm telling you. We would travel!

Cute family, and great pictures!

Lillie said...

Oh no-- I'd better clear up, no family growth any time soon. Still getting used to these ones. ;)

Also-- I'm using my 30mm f/1.4, my prime lens. The one Allie inspired me to get. I'm telling you, if you ever think I'm worthy of photography questions... head over to her blog, she's got some great tips in her archives-- and that's where I've gotten pretty much everything.
