My favorite picture..


This is my friend Katie and her little girl Emmy.

I think this has to be the best picture I have ever taken (or my favorite anyway). I am just a little bit bummed that it wasn't of one of my kids. But then again, my kids would never be that still and calm...and they would be reaching for the camera.

Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to adopt a child and I always wanted a red headed child. Whenever I see that ginger hair I get just a bit wistful because that isn't really in the cards now. My sister in law has red hair, so I might luck out with a niece or nephew.........one can only hope.

Fabulous Bek, absolutely fabulous. Incredible composition with the edge of moms face and the look on it plus the tiny hint of smirk on that cute little mouth of a babe.

Fabulous indeed.

Bek said...

Thanks you guys! This is one that I actually feel like I can take credit for because it wasn't an accident!!

Tracy, your kids are next. I need more red heads........I was thinking of your Abby when I was editing these........

Tracy M said...

I'm not sure Abby's hair is going to be that luscious red- but the boys definately are- only their eyes are green... Abby is looking a little more strawberry at this point- although it's hard to tell- there just isn't much hair!!

I can't wait for you to take their pics!

Beautiful. I love the little smirk too, and the momma's blue shirt pulls out those precious blue eyes. Love it!

Bek said...

Shannon, I want a shirt...what is your e mail?

Wow. Stunningly beautiful. Thanks again for the photos you took of my boys. It was great fun to meet you! (And you were SO patient with my little show-off...)

That is priceless - Emmy looks more wistful, pensive... at least to me. Nice work!

Ana said...

Just gorgeous, Bek.

We are going to head out to the beach (salgal and I -- she's on my blogroll) the day before Mother's Day. Probably by Watsonville but we could maybe go closer to you if you know a good spot. Do you wanna meet?

I'm jealous I don't have a stellar shot like that of one of mine. . . maybe the fact that they can't. . . sit. . . still. . . .
