Sidewalk Chalk, Sunglasses & Sprinkle Shoes {You Capture}

Photobucket


I'm a little nervous participating in a photo link up. While I love all most some of my photos...it's a little intimidating to join in and ask others to look at my photos...


Does any of that even make sense? Probably not...which doesn't surprise me.


This week I'm participating in You Capture over at Beth's fabulous and wonderful blog, I Should Be Folding Laundry. I was drawn into her blog by her gorgeous photos, beautiful writing and of course the name of her blog...seriously the story of my life.



So, here we go with our theme: Get outside! The girls and I try to play outside daily--so this was one challenge that we had a blast with...





This little beauty...




And her oh-so-fabulous shades...




And this little beauty...




And her "sprinkle" shoes...




Played under the late August sun...




Making beautiful memories for their Momma...




Talking and dreaming of yummy cupcakes...




And never missing a single ounce of love.

No need to be nervous, they're lovely shots of beautiful girls!

Kmama said...

Great shots!! Man, Madelyn's eyes are GORGEOUS! Did you enhance them in any way?? By the way, I finally figured out how to get PW's actions on my Macbook. It was a struggle, but I did it!!

Ashley Sisk said...

Oh come on now....you have nothing to worry about - and how is anyone supposed to get better if you don't practice. Alright, enough of my pep talk - I love her eyes in the first shot. They sparkle. And thanks for commenting on my blog - did I see you are a new follower? Either way, I'm now following and hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Um, you can share your photos with us any time girl! They are fabulous!!! Especially that first one and I LOVE the flip flops!!

Great job and so glad you've joined You Capture. Now you have to join more often! :D

I have a thing for pictures of sidewalk chalk. Love yours!

Rachel said...

Those are awesome photo's. I love that you can see the reflection in her eyes. I wish my boy would want to play more with his sidewalk chalk, but he'd rather run around instead!

BTW -- thanks for the comment and suggestions on my blog. I used to have Elements but never really understood it, then changed computers and now I can't find the CD! I might try to sweet talk hubby into it with a Christmas present or something!

Courtney said...

This is a terribly cute post. Love it! Your girls are beautiful!
