Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Beautiful shots--you're good at nature. :-) And I'd be having trouble with those cliffs even without a pregnant belly.

Ok, I gasped right out loud at that first shot! I LOVE your POV on that--so great to get way down and include that foreground. I've done that before, but I LOVE your rocky beach. The waves and rocks are cool, too--and the shot of the little beachcomber really needs to be a canvas. Wonderful!

That first one is marvelous! Oh, adn you're right about being 8months preggo and walking on those rocks. Better be careful missy.
