Photoshop Q's and one cute girl!

After my sister Ashley saw our family pictures my friend Jessica took, she asked me to snap some shots of her for her senior pictures at the same place. I certainly don't know a whole lot about photography, but I definately had a lot of fun.

My mom bought me Photoshop Elements for taking these pictures but I don't know how to use Photoshop. Is it worth learning? What, for example, could I do with these pictures in Photoshop?

New Pics!

It's that time again!! Zach always dreads picture time but I'm so glad that we did it. Our super sweet and talented friend Jessica was so nice to take our pictures. Unfortunately Hayden woke up from her nap with a fever just an hour before picture time. Sad little girl. We weren't able to capture her typical happy self, but she was a trooper.

Thanks so much Jessica!

This one is my favorite!! Look at those cuties!

More Tricks and Treats

Every year we get excited to see what costumes come out at the annual Cousins Halloween Party. This year the costumes did not disappoint!

Here we are: Cheerleaders. Zach gets the award for the most school spirit!

I think he is loving the outfit! And really, who knew he could jump so high in those tight pants?

Larry and took me a minute to realize who was who. Chris went as Larry and Larry went as Chris. It was HILARIOUS!!

The Boys! Dusty-Robin, Zach-Cheerleader, Larry-Chris, Chris-Larry, Ryan-Richard Simmons, Mason-Soccer Player. Seriously, what is up with these guys and tight/short pants?

The cousins!

Pumpkin Carving. Zach is full of hope that he'll take home the gold for the 3rd year in a row.

Hayden really got in to it!

Sad to say, Zach was knocked from his throne. No pumpkin carving award for him this year. There's always next year...

Not sure what she's looking for.

Emery, Avery and Grandma.
