I am just thrilled with how our Father's Day Gift turned out! Since school is out, we've had all sorts of time to play and go places. We also had time to do a fun photo shoot in the back yard a couple of weeks ago! I had this idea for a Father's Day frame, but wasn't sure how it would turn out. I didn't want to force the kids into it and make it an awful ordeal, so I figured if it didn't work we'd come up with something else, but they were so cooperative and seemed to have in the process!
I'm not a photographer, but have fun taking pictures of my children. I used Google Picasa to change my photos to black and white and do any editing.
I absolutely love how Ruby is rolling out of the pose to go get more grass to eat. If she was just laying there and not trying to roll around, it would have worried me :)
Such fun kids! We went simple with the clothing. White shirts, jeans, bare feet.
And it all came together! Michael's usually has their frames for 50% off and even if they don't, you can always find a coupon. I spent $9.00 on the frame that I found and let the kids decorate the matting with a Sharpie.
And we hope we can show him how much we love and appreciate him this Father's Day!
Just for fun, here is another shot that I printed out to a canvas for our new home. Again, Ruby is trying to get to some grass stalks that she grabbed. She isn't smiling, but you can see her cute little teeth. Good enough :)
