The blossoms have been in full bloom around here, and have provided all sorts of lovely photo shoot opportunities. :) I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you today.
I thought these were almond blossoms, but they don't quite look like other almond blossom pictures online. These trees are all over our area, and have a strong, almost unpleasant fragrance. (The girls think they smell like fish.) They are beautiful to look at, though. ;)
Beautiful purple Hardenbergia from our old house (which is right next to the school).
And, of course, no photo shoot for this blog would be complete without some doll pictures. ;)
Made to Move Lea
Tall "Terrific Teal" Barbie (review in the works) ;)
Hayden and her new Kirsten doll :)
Barbie Style Glam Lea doll
And here are a few I fiddled with on Ribbet.com:
The girls decided to take some photos of their own.
Little Gal, about to take a photo.
Middle Gal setting hers up.
Oldest Gal didn't start taking pics until I'd gone back inside, so I don't have a picture of her. However, all three of them got some great shots. Here are some of my favorites.
Her subjects were Wedding Day Alan and Midge from the 90s.
Middle Gal's subjects were from her Barbie family. Disney Store Prince Eric, Made to Move Bambi, one Kelly and one Chelsea. I don't remember all of their names, but if I get a chance I'll come back and add the names she gave them later. ;)
And here's one she took of her little sister, brave knight Little Gal. ;)
Little Gal's subjects were also from her Barbie family. Made to Move Barbie, Mattel Flynn Rider, a Kelly and a Chelsea.
I love watching the girls create their own photos. It's so fascinating seeing what they come up with. They're much better at taking pictures than I was at their age. I suppose that's one of the great things about digital cameras. You can see what you've taken a picture of and learn from your mistakes and successes as you're taking the shots. Having a mom into doll photo shoots probably helps, too. ;)
How about you? Feeling inspired to snap a few photos? I'd love to hear about your own photography adventures. :)
I have a few posts in the works, and will be responding to blog comments later today, so stay tuned! :)
