Determined to take good pictures...

I have decided to pick it up with my photography skills. I have no clue how to edit or post-process anything. It also doesn't help that my subjects cannot hold still and the baby just wants to run away the whole time.
Tim and I took these and I "edited" them.
Diana and Rich... I hope this attempt makes you proud.





Those are their Boden pants that they wear everyday. I love their stuff.




By the way, I am doing good on my antibiotics as you can see. Please keep praying.
I am on week 5 out of 10 weeks of these shots. They are intramuscular shots with a huge needle. They burn so bad that I have to have a focal point like when I was in labor. I cannot wait until this is over. Please, please pray that this works and the headaches and joint pain don't come back.
Thank you for caring about me...us.

hi steph,
you did such a great job with those pics! did your husband take them or did you use a timer? either way, they are beautiful shots. i hear what you're saying about mobile subjects when taking pics. lj is very active and it's a wonder that i get pics at all.

i will continue to lift you up in prayers and stand with you in believing for complete healing.

take care,
mary anne

Well who took these pictures?? They are awesome, if you took them then you don't need to work on your photography skills at all!! Not to mention that you had great subjects!

Good job with the photography. The "barn" backdrop is a neat one, I love non staged photos like that!! I agree with the "Boden" comment. I too love their stuff, it wears sooo well!! Also great to hear about the success with the antibiotics...being ill isn't fun, let alone ill like that with 3 small children!! Get some rest too.

Well, can I just say that those look like professional shots??? I love them. I also love Boden stuff. I suppose I havent been checking your blog long enough to know about the headaches/shots/etc, but I will be praying for you. Your boys are precious.

The photos look fantastic! My favorite is of you carrying that poor baby like a sack of groceries! Like you scooped him up as he was running away. Too cute!

You have definitely inspired me to get some great pics. My father in law has an awesome camera so maybe I will drag him out to the Battlefield to take pics of my Noah

Steph! I've actually shot at that little cabin before! You did a great job! The more you do shoot the more you'll understand light and shadows and how it effects your subject. I'm still learning!
Keep me updated on your progress!
