Weekend Photos in Review

Birthday Butt

I hope I don’t give Sadie a complex by leading this batch of photos with her birthday butt, but it was too cute not to.

This weekend was all about birthday celebrations. Sadie turned one on June 1st, but we officially celebrated her birthday this weekend. Nick doesn’t turn 8 until August, but we always have his “friends” birthday right after school ends, before everyone disappears on summer vacations. So it was all about the fake and prolonged birthdays ’round here.

Cupcake Shot

I think I took maybe ten or fifteen pictures of Sadie’s first birthday cupcake, but this accidental one is my favorite. It’s a great lesson in getting light, but not from your camera’s flash. My flash was off, but my sister was to my right and she used her flash. So the end result is a picture that has pretty lighting, without the usual harshness of it. If you’re in a situation where you feel you have to use your flash, find some way to deflect it, either with the Lightscoop, those bounce screens, a reflector or something accidentally creative like feeding off of someone else’s flash.

1. I wanted to name Lainey, “Sadie”. Precious.

2. I love personalized bloomers…..the cupcake is precious! Lainey has “Little Sister”, her initials, her name, one for Christmas, etc. She’s almost 3 and I now use them to cover her panties on the playground and such.

3. Beautiful photography……love the accidental flash/shield!
