BSM – 6/25/07

I took a ton of pictures this week, but haven’t had time to edit more than a handful yet.

First is my choice for Best Shot Monday, and then a few more pics from this weekend’s birthday festivities (Ava turned 3) follow. I love this first one because it is Ava just being Ava – playing in the backyard with her stick “family” and just being a kid.

  1. I LOVE the photo of Ava balancing, that is a treasure! And she looks so BIG in her birthday photos, where did our summer 04 AP BABIES go?
    Will turns 3 next month, and I am looking desperately for that little baby in him, but it is just gone.

    Gorgeous photos, thank you!

  2. what kind of lense to you have?? I love all your pictures.

  3. I love, love the b/w.

  4. Love the one of her slurping up her drink! The colors are delightful!

    kate – i use my 50 mm 2.0 lens for most of my pictures.

  6. That first photo is just wonderful. Love the tilt, conversion, and the mood it expresses. Great job!

  7. Happy Birthday, Ava! All the pics are great, but I really love the first two – walking on her “balance beam” and sluping her drink. Sweet!

    Thanks for your input on lenses. I’m not thrilled about the idea of no zoom, but I’ve heard SO much good about the 50mm I’ve just got to get it!

  8. Great pics! I was standing right next to you for the cake one but yours is much better, which made me smile :)

  9. Ava is so beautiful! I 2nd…or 3rd what everyone has said..she’s gotten so big. I can’t believe she is 3 already.

    I lvoe your pics so much!

    I think I need to get a new lens, my dad gave me his Nikon 70D(?) camera but all the pictures are turning out blurry even on autofocus….

  10. Oh these are fabulous. I’m with you, the b&w is my fave.

    Happy birthday, Ava!

  11. Amy, you are so incredibly talented!! Ava is gorgeous, too, happy birthday to the little girl with the great smile… and great mommy, daddy and li’l bro!

  12. I love the third one- where she is smiling over her cake…she looks so cute. I think our babies are ‘gone,’ but I adore the neat kids they have become.

  13. Lovely pictures! I like the “cleaning” of the candle one ;-)

  14. I LOVE that photo of Ava from behind as she balances herself. The angle is perfect! And her birthday photos are lovely too.

  15. What a great shot, she just
    seems so big. She looks like she is having great fun in the garden
