Portrait Practice

While we were in  Colorado, my sister and I decided to take advantage of the great scenery (Mountains, lakes and various forests) and practice our portraiture on each other. We took more than 200 pictures (got a little carried away havin' fun...!) but lots of them didn't work either because the sky was a little too overcast, the light reflected off my glasses ("but if you take them off no one will recognize you!") blinks, off-smile...etc. so I won't show you all those. ;)
Here's the keepers.  =D

I think this one is my favorite.  =)

 I LOVE Aspen trees. . . .

 Though taking bad pictures in them  is, *drum roll* "as easy as falling off a log"  =P (Just didn't work out as I envisioned!)

Models will be silly . . .   =P

This is another blooper, from my angle I thought it would look like I'm falling off the rock . . . but, as my sister pointed out, you can only see one hand and it looks more like I'm tying to take a bite out of the rock!
Oh well . . . I'm sure I'll have more opportunities to fall off rocks for the camera . . . =D


P.s. All jewelry in these pictures was made by  Meadowlanddesigns. You might mosey over there and see what else she makes...


  1. Those are great! Looks like you had fun!

  2. Aww pretty(: You're so talented!

  3. ohh... I love portraits! I hope to see more. : )

    1. You probably will . . . with my senoir portrait needing to taken and all. ;)

  4. I'm suprised that you didn't put in the one with me making a mischievous face!

    Oh, and you look so cute falling off rocks & logs.....while you're being silly!
