What a Guy

Exposure: (1/125) Aperture: f/1.4

This kid. He's quite the guy. Colson is not easy to put into words. KC and I are often left with a smile and the phrase: "What a guy."

The Children

Caroline is really starting to enjoy interaction. During her wide awake times, all she wants is girl talk. :) She's really making an effort to chime into the conversation by cooing and smiling. It's so sweet.

Lewis is always up for kissing and holding his sister, but the problem is that it only lasts up to about 10 seconds, literally, before he proclaims, "Done!" and shoves her straight up and off of his chest. So instead of holding the camera, I have to be ready to catch a baby. I did manage this one though. I'm so happy that Caroline will have these images to see when she's older of how her big brothers have dotted over her.

And of course, once Colson sees the lovin' going on, he needs to be a part of it. I have some images before this following one was taken where he's squeezing himself in and almost squishing Lewis and Caroline. What little Rumrey munchkins they are, and Caroline is already part of the pack.

**Photographer's note: in the first photo of just Caroline, I had her in front of a big window, but she did not have the direct sun on her. Lighting has everything to do with taking good photos. Notice the catchlights in her eyes. A good thing to start practicing is noticing how eyes capture the light. When you can see catchlights in your subjects eyes, you can count on having good illumination and detail. Also notice the subtle shadow the window light creates on her face. Her nose and the left side of the photo captures nice details that really show off her features. Really pay attention to how the shadows fall and what they reveal about your subject. They say a lot about what you are trying to capture.
Hope that may be helpful.

'09 Family Picture

I know I'm a bit late on this, but Happy New Year and goodbye 2009. It was a great year to be a Rumrey.

I'm going to start including my exposure and aperture info of my pictures for those of you that may be interested.

A post with no pictures. I've got something better to do...

There is much to be done. Toys scatter the floor. Pictures need to be taken. Dinner needs assembly. A toilet bowl, or two, could use a scrub. But here I sit with a book and a warm cup of coffee, and best of all, a sleeping baby - cheek pressed against my chest, dead-weight of a body, short, steady breathes in pulse against my own. What a gift I have been given: Life. This life, shared. Thank you God.
