Belated Birthday Pics

I finally took Laura Anne outside to take her 5-year pictures! I decided that we will not be going to a studio anymore because 1--it will save us money, and 2--I'm perfectly capable of taking at least halfway decent photos. :)

I love this next picture although it is a tad fuzzy. The camera focused on the grass behind Laura Anne. But it turned out okay after sharpening it in Photoshop.

For the following picture, I told her to look off to the side at another tree because I wanted to get a profile shot.Then she saw Chris walking up behind me, getting ready to surprise me, but she was trying not to turn her head.
After he surprised me, I snapped this one:

I think Chris must've been making her laugh:

Squinting from the brightness:
One of my favorites from the day:

Funny story: She was telling me how cold she was here, but I really wanted to get this shot:
I was trying to get a natural smile, so instead of saying "smile!" I told her "picture Daddy wearing a tutu!" I didn't get the look I was going for:
We did get some good ones, though. She is beautiful and growing up way too fast.
And now if you'll excuse me, I just received a package I've been waiting for for a loooong time. You'll see soon!!!!!! :D

Brianna, these pictures are fantastic!! I cannot believe they are not professional! You take amazing photos and should continue to take them rather than go to someone else as well as consider doing this professionally!! Great job and Laura Anne is beautiful!
