I’ve given up on ‘studio’ photos where I set things up with a backdrop. It’s stressful and frustrating, and it’s not really my style at all. So we went outdoors to a nearby apartment complex that has beautiful gardens and a putting green and took some photos.
We did the same thing last year. This is my favorite from last year…taken with my Sony Cybershot and edited in Picasa. (It’s a bit underexposed and cool for my tastes now.)
Here is a sample of this year’s photos. I still have several more to edit, but these are my favorites so far. (With toddlers you don’t get a choice of which shoes they wear. Cooper apparently is a California boy through and through.)
