i seriously only took these pictures a few hours ago, but i couldn't help diving right in and sharing a few.

carrie, i can only hope my own kids are half as good in front of the camera as yours...

it doesn't get much cuter than these two!

The first two pictures of the boys are ADORABLE! Just one thing I noticed about that spot by the rocks and trees. In our family pics and theirs, the sun in the backround makes the people look really washed out and the picture look a little too bright. I love that spot, but maybe a different angle or something when taking the pictures would help. It would be better if the sun was more in front of the people/or a different time of day. I totally love your work Jana! =) Just thought I'd give you my thoughts.

Cute! Great job. Oh, one question for you: what did you use to make your signature on your prints?

Chelsi - thanks for the suggestion! I noticed that too on these... I think there is a light setting on my camera I can change, so I need to look into that.

Julie - I used Adobe Illustrator. I drew 'Jana Laurene' with a paintbrush tool, and I forget which font I used for the photography. Then I turned down the opacity to 75%-ish (that makes it a little see through over the picture) and saved it as a jpeg. Then, when I'm done editing a picture in PhotoShop I just 'place' it over the picture. If you want me to do one for you,you could tell me what you want and I would be more than happy to! p.s. sorry if I just told you how to build a watch when you asked what time it was :)
