A few years ago, I decided that it was just not any fun to get four kids dressed up and take them to a photo studio for pictures. Invariably, one would be cranky, sleepy or simply unable to sit still and in our fifteen minute session, there wouldn't be a single picture I wanted to buy. Not to mention, that for all this hassle, the sitting fees were outrageous!

So we decided to take advantage of the beautiful autumn scenery at Walnut Point and take the kids' pictures there. It was really nice. We could take our time and take as many pictures as we wanted. I will spare you all 190 I took, but here are a few of my favorites.

Yes, Mom, I will get copies made for you.













































And, the picture that truly captures the Krabel kids...

The background LOOKS fake like it is in a studio, it is so perfect. =-)
The nice thing about taking pics yourself is that the smiles are nicer, i think. The camera captures that the subject has a relationship with the picture taker. Sometimes another person just cannot capture the child's true self, i think, and the child does not give it.

Does that make sense, or is it the headache talking? lol
