Portraits



Today I'm joining Tracy Trinket's & Treasures at her portrait party. I love playing around with photos and sometimes I just get a good one...hard to do when kids will not pose for pics unless they are goofing around.

Actually, I prefer catching them candidly. Such as this one I took of my oldest standing before his lacrosse game. I didn't have to do anything to it...the sun and the son were at the right place at the right time.

 I don't have any type of photoshop software so with my limited features, this is what I have. My middle son with a soft effect and in black and white:
and my youngest...love this picture...he's older now.
and this is all I can get out of him now...

Finally...my self portrait...in pencil sketch...I like it because you can't see my face very well (hee, hee).
Enjoy your day!

Hey at least he didn't have the straws up his nose!!! Love the profile shot. I find the best pics are when they're not posed. It's a "true" capture of moments.

What handsome boys. You are lucky you can get photos of 3 boys. I have to beg and plead even for candid shots of my 1 son. He hates my camera! I am glad you shared a self portrait. I think you are beautiful. Thansk for linking.
