Favorite photos so far

It's good to take a moment now and then to pause and see what we have accomplished so far... looking back at my year so far in photographs there are highs and lows - I may not have accomplished everything that I wanted to - but then I've also had some other moments that surprised me. So to start this post off I choose my top five photos of my kids, taken by me. It's terribly difficult to choose just five!! 

Featured as #1 photo on The Daily Wyatt
This is my oldest daughter. Processed in Photoshop Elements 7 with actions from My 4 Hens Photography

Taken during the snowstorm earlier this year. I love the way these look, I don't even remember what I did to get them to look this way. I know I applied a few actions in PSE but I have no idea what I did - but I love this whimsical treatment!  This is such a typical, wonderful moment for my youngest daughter.

I can hardly believe that this is the best photo I have of my little man! 
I have tons of photos of him but most of them are cell phone snapshots. 

This is cheating a little, I know - it's not taken by me. But here is a photo of my little guy, due in July.

So those are my top five favorites of my kids. 

But I couldn't stop there! I have several more favorites that I wanted to share!!

That very first is the photo of yours I always associate with you if that makes sense... It is stunning and I always marvel at how much she looks like her beautiful mama! :) They are all great choices, but the other one that stands out is the ladies having coffee out of focus... I love that one!

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Great choices, Faith! I really love the second shot.

Amber said...

I agree that first photo is AWESOME!! I tend to enjoy the shots of children doing what they love to do, so the third is so sweet. It tells a story and is so true of kids at play. They are so focused.

Thanks for linking up with us FAITH!!

What a great look-back! I might have to say that my favorite is that muffins shot - I've got a think for the fade-look at the moment...
