Challenge #4-Portraits


We recently took a little vacation to Jellystone Park in Wisconsin and we were able to take a little hayride with Yogi bear.

Michael and Ryan were the first ones in line to sit next to Yogi.








Here's my dad blowing out his birthday candles in June.


















Here's Ryan snuggling with his daddy.

















Michael enjoying an ice pop at a pool party.

















This is Maggie. She is a Great Dane and she belongs to one of the doctors that I work with. I was playing with photoshop to come up with this image.


















Here's my little neighbor Frankie. He's a year old and his feet were in the first challenge! Here he is just starting to think about walking. Now he's practically running all over the place!
















This is Auggee. I've been taking portraits of Auggee every few months since he was small. Here he is about 8 months old. His mom wanted some pictures to make a graduation announcement when he graduated obedience class :)













Here's my self portrait. My least favorite and most challenging photo to take. Thank god for photo shop!
















Thanks for looking!

Hey! Great shots girl! Love the picture of the dog in b/w!! My jaw just dropped when I saw that one! Your new avatar is gorgeous! Love it! I know how hard it is to take self-portraits, that's why I threw it in the challenge. I hate it too... hence, the photoshoping on mine too! Haha! Love the photo of Ryan and his dad and the little one of Frankie! He's so cute. What's the age difference between Michael and Ryan? They look like twins!
