Hidden Talents

A few weeks ago my sister Sara and I were talking about newborn pictures and discussing how I love newborn pics that aren't necessarily taken in a studio, but that its such a bummer that they are usually so expensive. We decided that instead of paying someone to take them for me, she volunteered her hubby Doug who has an awesome camera. I was so excited!

Last Sunday she came out to meet Colby and brought the camera with her. While Spencer rigged our lamps to create studio like lighting, :) we started gathering what we had around the house for props and she started snapping away! She kept saying that she had no idea what she was doing (and I think she was partly telling the truth since she didn't really know how to turn the flash off or change the focus at all haha) but they turned out AWESOME. She took what she had to Doug for some photoshop finishing touches and we had some masterpieces.

I think we found a new photographer in the family. :)

Thanks Sara and Doug!!

And now for your viewing pleasure...

Looks like in that last teddy bear picture he's like, "Mom, don't you dare pull this fuzzy, warm bear leg from between my legs. It's cold down there!"
