Best Shot Monday...

So in an effort to make good on my 30 day blogging challenge, I have become minorly obsessed with my blog. I am so nervous about coming up with something to write every day (which isn't really a problem, I have plenty to say), I came up with a weekly schedule of things to write about. Some of them come from other people's blogs, like Best Shot Monday at Picture This and so I thought I'd give it a try today. I'm trying to "get myself out there" in the blogosphere so here goes.





My best shot this week is this one of Sam and Yael being cute together. I must say I was trying for a different effect and will continue to work on it, but she prefers to roll over. Actually, today is a funny day to do "best shot" because yesterday I took the kids to Sadie's for a photo shoot and it was a total disaster. It was post-nap, I thought we could do it, but it just didn't work. Sam would not cooperate, Yael was not happy, and it just all blew up. And my dh says I just have to admit that I was wrong, but I tell you that I was totally disappointed with the photographer. She didn't just take pictures, she waited for the "right picture" which drove me nuts. She missed tons of cute shots of my kids waiting for them all to look at her. I haven't decided which ones to buy; frankly, sometimes I think that I take better pictures of them at home. I think after our Sadie's membership expires (September, I think), we will try another photography studio. I can't really justify shelling out the money for a real professional to take the pictures, but someday I will....



Anyway, here is the picture for Best Shot Monday. Enjoy!

Firt - Welcome to BSM!!!

Second - what an adorable picture! They are precious. My daughter's only had studio portraits taken a couple times, and both times I left feeling frustrated just like you. I can take better picutres than those "pros!" LOL.

Welcome to BSM! I've gotten sucked into it!!! And what a bummer she didn't get those cute photos...sometimes the best ones are of them NOT looking at the camera!

I used to take them to studio portraits and am finding I much prefer the natural photos I take of them at home and of them just doing things that they enjoy doing. So I say YES! do it yourself. This one you posted is really good.
