Technically, it's still Thursday, but by the time most of you read this it will be Friday. And the week sped by.
The good news is that I'm not nearly as overwhelmed as I thought I'd be. I've even had time to make some tutus for the girls' Halloween costumes, keep the house relatively clean (if it weren't for Miss Sophia, it'd be a heckuva lot cleaner!), and take plenty of photos.
I've been reading a lot about backlighting and thought I'd give it a go today. So I sat Sophie up on the kitchen table in front of the window (believe it or not, the blinds aren't even open!), set my exposure, and shot away. The results are kind of cool. They are not perfect by any means and I definitely still need to fine tune a couple things, but I was excited to learn something new. Of course, the other girls wanted to get in on the action and it gave all of them a chance to model their new tutus. (These are not complete costumes by the way, tutus only.)
Bria (who is too big to be sitting on the kitchen table, but I let her do it anyway):
Chloe (who is getting so big...really starting to lose her babyness, and it's making me sad):
And finally Baby Sophie (who is a total wiggle worm and needed tealights to keep her on the table):
