Happy Valentine's Day

Hope your weekend is full of love, laughter, and chocolate. I know ours will be. Ro (in pink) and Ree (in red) were all psyched up this morning and ready to rock at their preschool V-Day party: DSC_0146ms DSC_0164ms DSC_0168ms After naptime, I played around with the awesome macro lens TubaDad gave me for a birthday gift, and got some neat V-Day Eve pics of the girls. These pics are all straight out of the camera, no cropping, photoshopping, or any adjustments. First to get up from her nap was Ree, so she got to be the guinea pig: Ree Ree Ree Ree Then Ro woke up and sleepily took Ree's place in the spotlight: Ro Ro After our extreme close-up photoshoot, TubaDad volunteered to watch the twinadoes so Catherine and I could go out for little girl time. I gave Catherine the choice of getting a fancy schmancy dinner or grabbing food at the mall and shopping all night. Um, you know she didn't even blink before choosing the mall, right? A few more V-Day Eve pics are here (thumbnails, detail, slideshow), including one where I give Catherine the infamous ladybug suitcase, pics of our freaky hailstorms today (we've had 3 so far), and the girls' wildly different styles in inspecting their school party loot and choosing one piece to eat (Ree dumped the whole bag out while Ro carefully inspected each item then placed it in a single line). Have a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow!

    Happy Valentine's Day to my three girls. I can't believe you took a picture of my feet, even if those are my new shoes.

  2. Happy Valentine's Day!! Those close-up pics are absolutely AMAZING!!

    The pics of your girlies in their Valentine's outfits are adorable but what I wish was that others could hear how much fun the girls are having and all the little stories they're excitedly telling you as you snap away. Great job momma!!

    And, thanks for the infamous ladybug suitcase! It's fun to think of taking it back to China but I must admit the extra packing room has caused me to go on a bit of a spending spree...Oops!

  4. Happy Valentine's Day... I love the close up pictures... what's the focal distance for those? And how long did the girls stay relatively stationary for you to be able to take them?

    Hope you enjoyed the Mall - grown-up girl time is really important... ask K2.

  16. I absolutely LOVE the wrinkly nose photo! Have you seen the Mamarazzi blog? (you can search the first page of my blog for the link) Your pics can easily compete with the best of those! Of course, it also helps to have adorable models -- which you certainly do!

    I hope Valentine's Day was full of smooth melty chocolate and great big happy babygirl smiles! And maybe even a kiss or two from your best guy!

  21. Hey D2, the macro pics were: 105mm, F/4, 1/60s, ISO 200. I was sitting with my back against the sliding glass window and the girls were facing me, so we had lots of light. They were kind of sleepy, so I didn't have too hard of a time snapping of a few pics while they held still (a feat I'll probably never reproduce, haha).

  22. That is a fantastic lens. What brand and type did you say it was, again? (My sister is a photographer, I want to recommend it to her.)
