It's 2009!

Ok so I am 3 days late on commenting on the new year but late is better then never. I am really having a hard time believing it's 2009 already. Is it just me or is time just moving so much faster these days. I can't believe I will be 28 in just a four days...and my baby will be 2 in just twenty-one days!

My goal for 2009 is to really slow down the time by really enjoying moments...meaning more snapshots, less portraits of my kids-being with them more than watching them. Another goal is to really learn how to use my lights (which kind of conflicts a bit with my previous goal lol) And of course the obligatory weight loss goal but I am not as concerned with that one.

So with that being said here are a few snapshots of Keats that I took over the past couple of days, playing with my flash.

He loves wearing Jame's hats.

And bothering his poor sick brother:

I just love this kid so much! I had to trim his hair up a tiny bit when I saw how in his eyes it was before.

his hat pic (1st one) is my favorite of the bunch... just watch your frame when shooting to make sure everything that's supposed to be there it's there...

Bobbi, I love that first shot of Keats in the hat. The conversion just rocks it. I usually like color so I can sigh over his eyes, but the BW in these is perfect.

He is such a cute little guy, and I like your casual shots of him a lot! And poor, sick, brother. . . I hope he's feeling better.

You little guys are so adorable!
Happy early birthday! I just turned 29!!! I still can't believe it's the new year either! Time sure does fly by!

Linnao said...

He is so cute! These pictures are priceless!

Amy said...

Looks like you're doing good on your first goal, these are great spontaneous shots! :)

Mandy said...

He is going to be SUCH a heart breaker. I cannot get over that he is going to be 2 years old. Wow! I have been 28 for almost a year now, and let me tell ya...28 feels older than 27 for some reason. WHY is that? Eww....30 is just a couple years away (I am crying).

Gypsy Girl said...

Ohhh all of 28? Enjoy my dear cuz the time only gets faster and faster. Keats is adorable.sorry B is not feeling well.

KRISTIE said...

such a cutie!

Becky said...

Your photos never look snapshot-y to me, Bobbi. I love that look on poor Blaze's face in the one where Keats is bugging him. Hope he's feeling better.

Raechel said...

Great job! The second one is my favorite. So clean and crisp! He looks like a commercial model!!

Mary said...

Nice shots. He is such a cutie! Good luck with your goals.

Joanne said...

He's so adorable! These shots are fabulous!
