The big E

I'm impatiently waiting for Christian to be done with his workout. To pass the time I figured I am due for another blog post...this time with pictures of the kids. I took some pictures of them last week in their Easter outfits and for a not-so-great-at-photography-person I think they turned out okay... I wish Ava would smile as easily as Spencer does. These smiles were FAKE and I only got them because I bribed her with "Princess Soup"! Comes with being three I guess!? Anyway, this was such a fun photo shoot and a good learning experience. Does anyone know of any good photo editing programs that aren't too expensive?

What's Princess soup? I might need that one in the future. I think all she needs now is a cute little purse to complete the outfit!

I think you did well but then again that is coming from me.....have you seen my stellar photography skills? scary... I love that last picture. He is soo cute. So is she of course but he is new so more of a novelty. I love his blue eyes. I cant put my finger on who he looks like. I mean besides you and Christian.

I think they turned out cute! I have to bribe my 3 year old son to smile for pictures too. I have used a $ and candy before, haha

Who needs editing and photography skills when you have kids as gorgeous as yours? (Your pics really do look great though. :)

I love spencers smile, he's a good subject. Ava looks so old since I last saw her, weird. I actually like the one where she has a bratty look on her face! kind of looks like she just got into trouble.
Just wait til you have 3, you can never get a good photo of all of them. drives me crazy!

Those pictures turned out great. I use photoshop and if you watch Costco sometimes you can get it for a really great price with their coupons.

Great photos Nichole! :) Ava and Spencer are so adorable. What kind of camera do you have?

I use GIMP for photo editing. It's like photoshop elements except FREE, and I love it! :) It took awhile to get to learn how to use it but there are great tutorials out there on how to use it. You can download it at www.gimp.org
