My Beach Babes

Yes, I said beach babes. The girls are getting big enough not to be called babies - although that is how I'll always look at them, even when they are in their 30's (if I am blessed to live that long).

You know what my problem is? I think every picture I take is a freaking work of art. I took the girls to a local beach at a nearby lake (got a little turned around but finally found it) and began to take picture after picture... and when I got home to look at them all, I was really pleased with the outcome.

I said 'oooh I like this one' and 'aaaah that one is really nice' and 'this one is great!' or 'this one is even better' (like I would know a really good photograph from a polariod.) It has nothing to do with my ability as a photographer. Calling me a photographer is a joke. It's just I have these two adorable girls that rock my world every single day. I know that, but I can lie to myself a little, can't I?









Believe it or not - I had to doctor this one with photo editing software to get a woman's butt and legs out fo the pic - she was sitting in a folding chair and it just took something away from the photo.


Can you tell I doctored this one to get Kenzie's butt and leg out of it? I love the photo editing software I use - it's super simple, and made this a better pic. I know photographers do this all the time to create a better picture. Why not me?

The day was a blast, but the kids got home with sand in their crotch - can we say ouch???? - and a shower was next on the list. Water, water everywhere.
