Let's Take A Vote, Shall We?

My friend, Jessica Claire, who has always been someone I have been enchanted with, is a good friend and our family photographer. She has also been giving me some photography and photoshop tutorials. At our "lessons" we usually end up eating something delicious, talking about the books we like, recent movies we've seen, purchases that must be shared, and funny stories about life. Our last visit I even managed to get all emotional while talking about the difference between happiness and joy and relating it to Gunnar. I think she got a little scared and weirded- out at the motherly paroxysm; sorry Jess. Anyway, amidst all the female boding she also manages to share just a touch of her genius and brilliant talent with me. I also recently scored some time with one of her old mac computers. I am considering making that purchase one day so she thought it would be wise for me to test drive one of hers first. Thanks to her "loan" I am currently having a sordid love affair with photoshop. I am unable to sleep because I am tangled in my lover's "action" arms. :) If my marriage is ruined it is all Jess's fault. ;)


This is one of the pictures I took of my sister's family while she was here for Thanksgiving. Which one do you like the best? Cast your vote in the comments section to help Kori and her clan decide.

Picture One: "Ostriching" Black and White


Picture Two: Tecnicolor Dream



Picture Three: Fast and Furious



Picture Four: Boutwell


Picture Five: Vintage

So, which one should they send out to all their friends and family? What would be your choice?

I'm going to have to go with picture #4....i'll go ahead and vote for Rob too, since he has an opinion on pics when it comes to B&W vs. Color....he thinks we always need to go with Color...so for him #4 also. Nice work Kamee.

The last one. It has a family comfort feeling to it.

Celeste said...

Kamee all your pictures are just beautiful. If I had to choose it would be #4. And thanks for the advice on cameras and such.

I like #4, also. I think you can see the baby a little bit better. In some of them it is a bit too dark. But what do I know???

I like #2 Tecnicolor Dream.

Paige said...

Oh, and I LOVE your wishlist. I had one on my blog a year or so ago and it totally worked. I hope you get all your little heart desires. And then some. :)
