I Heart Pics

Out of 3,308 pictures that I took while on vacation, I've shared my favorites with you through out the week. Today's are some random ones that happen to be my absolute favorites. Hope you enjoy them.
Linking to The KatEye View's Frame Within a Frame.

I love where we are all positioned in this family picture but I hadn't realized we had the sun behind us. 

Tinting pictures to black & white can fix all kinds of imperfections. I used Pioneer Woman's Actions for Photoshop Elements in Slight Light and Black & White. 

After I noticed we were facing the wrong way, this one came about. By this time the kids were tired of posing so we basically had to tie them down to stay. Cooper was real cooperative though.

This might be my favorite picture EVER! Not only because it's so cute but if you look at Sun Kissed Boy #2 on the top, he looks like he was saying something starting with the letter F. He was. While I was shooting the pic(s), he was singing "I Believe I Can Fly"!
He only knows two lines of the lyrics which he sings over and over.

"I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky."

I believe that they are words to live by. I need to teach him the lines of the rest of the chorus.
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly....

Yanet, I absolutely love several of these shots...the reflection in the sunglasses is brilliant. I also really love the 'stacked' shot at the end.

Thanks for taking us along on the journey...

They are so so great!! The sunglass ones are so clear. Love those. Also the bold colors of the chairs. The stacked one is a great shot and will make a great print. I'll be having a giveaway soon that you might like :)

What great shots. I love the sungalsses idea. I did a chair shot in Colorado with colorful chairs that is really cool and love it too. I am so glad I get to see your family photos. They always make me smile. Love me a wet dog photo too!

Joanna said...

Wow, you took some great shots! The ones with the sunglasses are awesome! I would have never thought to do something like that. I love using Pioneer Womans actions in Photoshop. If you haven't tried the Coffee Shops {I think that's the name of it}, those are pretty terrific as well.

I love that R.Kelly song. I remember when it first came out, all those years ago! ;-)

These are beautiful Yanet! I can see why they are some of your favorite. I love the sunglass shots as well. You have a beautiful family and I am so glad that you had a wonderful vacation. I am off to go see your other pics!

So many fun shots - I especially like the ones taken in the reflection of your glasses. How cool!

Kelli W said...

I love the chairs:) The picture in the sunglasses is awesome too! I wish I was more creative about taking pictures!

Susan said...

Love these! The chairs are such beautiful colors, and the sunglass reflection shots are AMAZING! Love the great family and "flying" photos as well.

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

They're all great, Yanet! What I love about so many of your shots is not that they're good, technically, (which they are) but that they have such a sense of FUN. Awesome pics!

Karrie said...

I am impressed! The "pile up" of the kids is oh so cute and the reflections in the sunglasses; classic!!!! Adore! Well done! Looks like a great trip!

Renee said...

Such beautiful shots...they all deserve a place in your home! Gave me some great ideas, too!

Natasha in Oz said...

Your pictures are stunning. I love the one of the reflection in the sunglasses! Looks like you had a great time.

I just posted about Summer at my blog too and how I can't wait until it arrives here in Australia!

Best wishes,

The sunglass shots are stunning! By far the best frame within a frame! :)
