Day 116/365: Grandma’s Angels

We were camping over Easter with the family, so on Easter Sunday the boys were summoned to Grandma’s cabin to see what the Easter Bunny had left in there! The four of them played so well together over the weekend and provided us with plenty of free entertainment. This was one of their more angelic moments I captured – Jack, Kyle, Jett & Ethan – Grandma’s Angels!

Day 38/365 : Two Little Boys

I was inspired to take this shot by Tiffany Tregenza, who has a wonderful 365 Day Project going (which you can see here). She took a beautiful photo of her twins walking to school. I also want to have a memory of my boys walking down the driveway to the bus, a memory forever of how small & gorgeous they were and of the special relationship they share as brothers.

Day 24/365 : Portrait of my Youngest

I took this photo in the bricks & arches at Newcastle Beach after the boys had finished scooting around the skate park. In contrast to Kyle, Ethan was not entirely happy about the intrusion. He wanted his photo taken, but only as he attempted to mar my efforts in photographing his brother! Eventually I coerced him into sitting still for about 30 seconds!

I have spent quite a bit of time on this pic in post processing. His face was quite shadowed and the light from the ocean side was actually a bit distracting and was drawing the eye away from my boy.  I have taken some advice I received on my last portrait and tried to use lighting to get more focus on Ethan’s face. This is a big step up for me in the processing area, so would love your feedback.

Cheers, Kim.

Day 20/365 : Kyle in the Halfpipe

A quick one today, with more fun in the halfpipe. This is my oldest boy, Kyle. Would love to hear what you think of the colours!

Day 6/365

As a parent, this climbing structure across from the local shopping centre scares the heck out of me! But my little spider monkeys absolutely love it, especially the youngest one!
