Autumn photoshoot(s)

Yeah, yeah, that is photoshoots with an "s" because I've been trying and trying to get a nifty autumn photo or two to post on the We Picture {This} mamarazzi web site. But, man oh man, things were just not working. Either I couldn't find any fall-looking stuff when I had the camera, or the kids weren't in the mood to have their pictures taken, or the weather wasn't cooperating, or blah blah blah. By the way, I use the term "photoshoot" kind of facetiously, because the girls' idea of a photoshoot is that they will deign to stay in one place for about 45 seconds before screaming off into their normal blur-of-motion to play. But yesterday, phew, I finally got two that make me smile. The first one is of Ro: Ro: DSC_8004LR And the second one is of Ree on the top and Ro on the bottom: Ree top Ro bottom: DSC_8085LRs-2 Check out the We Picture {This} site to see these two pics in humongo, giant size or to see other photographers' cool takes on the autumn theme. Along the way to getting these two autumn snaps, I ended up with a fairly big pile of photos that almost made the cut (I was quite wishy washy and went back and forth many times before choosing...)(mouseover any photo to see who's who): Ro: DSC_7331LRs Ree: DSC_7336LRs Ree: DSC_7344LRs Ree: DSC_7348LRs Ree: DSC_7355LRs Ree: DSC_7734LRs Ree: DSC_7738LRs Ree: DSC_7743LRs Ree: DSC_8061LRs Ree left Ro right: DSC_8082LRs Ree left Ro right: DSC_8088LRs Fun! I like participating in these themes because I'm forced out of my comfort zone and learn so much from the other photographers. Does anyone else have any cool Fall Fotos to share?

    We used your wreath making idea (THANK YOU) and it was great - had to find something to do with all those leaves. Thanks for all your great ideas!

  8. Next to the last is hysterical! Definitely my fav.

    I am still waiting for the leaves to fall from my trees. At least some are starting to turn red. I wasn't sure we were gonna get Fall this year in the Central Valley.

  14. Random question. Can the girls tell themselves apart in pictures?

  15. Your fall pictures are great. The light was just perfect. And the girls are zany and adorable, as always.

    I did a post awhile ago about our fall trip to Mt Tremblant.

  21. Hi M3,

    Just wanted to let you know that we purchased the bike you tested - back when you tested it, and we love it. Finally got around to taking pictures and posting them. Michela loves it, and I am sure her sister will too. We adore it.

    THANKS!

  22. I am totally guessing your pictures are cute. I can't see them. My hubby installed a protection thing and now I can't see anyone's phtos. I just put p a video on my blog and I can't even watch my own video. It is coming down! I gotta see your fall photos!
