B-Ro’s turn.

But first, the winner of the adorable apple lunch bag (according to random.org) was comment #74, Kristina:

“That is SO cute! My daughter would LOVE it!
Thanks for the chance, Erin!
Have a great weekend!”

Email me with your address, Kristina, and I’ll get the bag sent your way!


Now, onto the B-Ros! (and, yes, “B-Ros” is an acceptable variation of “B-Ro”. Particularly if you roll the R.)


Doesn’t every mother of a little boy live for barefoot, bare-chested overall pictures?


My grandfather hand carved this old car, along with many, many others, over 25 years ago. He burned his initials and the date on the bottom which makes me love them even more. I use these cars for little boy sessions a lot, but I love them the most in the hands of my own children.


B-Ro isn’t big on smiling for the camera. He has a lot of tricks but that just isn’t one of them. So when he takes pity on me and flashes a quick grin I’m elated!


Okay, this next one might be my favorite and it was almost tossed in the initial culling. It was slightly overexposed and since I don’t shoot in RAW I was going to chunk it. But then I remembered – Lightroom! I  bought it several months ago and have not invested the time to learn it but this shot gave me the oomph I needed. So I spent several hours last week in a little “professional development” and ended up saving it. Love!




And one last grin just for kicks.






Man I love that little Buddy Ro.

Been waiting for these and, as I expected, they are wonderful. That little towhead is a doll and I love that he is playing with my dad’s toy car — crafted in 1981 when you were not even E’s age now!

Erin, Love the shots of B-ro and the others of Sara as well you are such a phenominal photographer. I just thought I’d let you know a tip Wendy shared with us in class a while back…you can open jpgs from bridge in camera raw form. I use it all the time when I’m off on my exposure (which is A LOT) You just right click on the picture and click “open in camera raw” it’s a beautiful thing. Here is a screen shot of it for you to see, though I don’t even pretend to know nearly as much as you do when it comes to photography, just thought I may be able to help you save some time! Here is the screen shot http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj159/kristinconk/cameraraw.jpg

These make me love summer again…I having a hard time adjusting to hot and humid. Love that boy and his toy car. Speaking of old things, did Sarah get the necklace?

Oh, how adorable!! All of these are so cute…I can’t pick one. You’re going to have to share your wall display of your two cuties once you print & hang them! 🙂

Thanks for sharing.

RoianneJune 30, 2009 - 10:27 am

How can you stand having such cute kids?! 😉 They are both sooo beautiful! These shots and the ones of Sarah are amazing!

StacyJune 30, 2009 - 11:41 am

You are so correct on the little boy in overalls pictures! I have the vision in my mind, now I just need to get my boy in his overalls and head out with the camera. These are beautiful pictures! I’m just impressed that you can get such great eye contact! And gorgeous eyes they are.

JenniferJune 30, 2009 - 3:58 pm

OMG!!! I’ve been super busy and just haven’t gotten around to checking your blog in a bit. I finally had time to catch up and can’t believe that I missed the one I’ve been waiting for!!! I LOVE THESE!!!! I think the close-up is my fav but love them all!! I just want to reach through the computer and give him a big ol squeeze.

Do you have people constantly stop you out in public and tell you how gorgeous your kids are? I can’t believe you didn’t enter him in the Baby Gap contest too because he would win for sure!!

EvaJuly 13, 2009 - 12:13 pm

So you don’t post process your shots? Amazing work!
