I love taking photos of kids, but when I see these pictures on the blog it reminds me that Friday Night Photos started as a way for me to practice my photography. I have a lot to learn about taking pictures in different light conditions, especially sunlight, but no worries because you can't take a bad photo of these darling girls who stopped by to see my "new" house. Then a few weeks later the twins spent the night, and we had a great time! These girls are cousins, and grandkids of my sister Pam.
Loved the looks on the faces of Morgan and Sophie in this one. Sophie doesn't seem to enjoy the picture-taking process too much. My brother Rand calls Morgan (the twin on the left) "no bangs" and her sister Lauren (above on the right) is called "bangs." But in his defense he lives in California and hasn't gotten to see the twins enough to tell them apart. Now they're going to be living close to him for a few years so Rand will get to know them better, but we're sad they'll be so far away.
A few weeks later, two cute boys came to spend a few nights like they do every summer and we had a cousins outing to the Olympic Fountain at Gateway Plaza. The two boys on the right are my nephews and the brother and sister on the left are my great-niece and great-nephew, so they're not actually cousins, but they're cousins in spirit!
Life is good when you've been running through the fountain and then you get to warm up on the hot pavement. Mitchell and Cooper are loving it!
Bright hot sun that day and I see my limitations as a photographer loud and clear in this photo, but I loved the expressions!
After the fountain, Ethan, Mitchell and I went to one of our favorite spots in Salt Lake. Ethan was definitely happy to be there.
Mitchell was loving our favorite place too. They had a great time sleeping over at Aunt Kalyn's, and we're planning to have them come back in August for a little school shopping!
