Wordful Wednesday-Photography Envy

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

When I grow up, I want to learn how to take photos like these:

The back lit lighting makes my heart sing.  I also love that my children are the subjects.  I HEART these “not-so-little-ones-anymore” more than words can express.

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host  Amanda’s place to see what she has to be Wordful about today!

    Great shots but really? The fact that when you grew up you had those kids in those beautiful shots totally negates your need for photography skills. They are gorgeous!

    What awesome lighting on these photo, but of course, your kiddos are beautiful. Just wondering how you got them, at such varying ages, to agree to dress so similarly. My two would scream if they knew they were wearing the same color on the same day. You know, copying and all.

    Love the outfits. I can’t manage to coordinate my TWO kids. Unless hubs let Owen wear a dress, which Owen loves, but Hubs for some reason disapproves..

    You kids are beautiful!! Look how handsome those twins are! Of course this is no surprise given they all get their good looks from you!

    P.S. You should come enter my giveaway for a $50 Target GC! It’s for a good cause!

    I’m with you – I adore the backlighting like that. I’ve shot ONE good photo like that my whole life… but I have goals, and that’s good, right?
