I heart faces- week 11

I've never entered a photo contest, but I thought this sounded like fun. This week the theme is "no flash"- since that's almost always the way I shoot, I had fun picking out a couple of pictures. Thanks to Amy and Sharline for helping me pick which one to submit.
Adult Entry...

While taking pictures of my little sister and her little guy, I captured her smiling the "this is what we do" smile while Zach showed that he had had enough.

I prefer taking pictures with no flash, because the images seem more natural and I like the real shadows that you get. It helps me feel the picture more.



Child Entry
Every time Jade loses a tooth, she insists on a photo shoot. So, I have to come up with things to spice it up a bit. This one we did in the kitchen with natural light. Ever since we did this one, we always have to do a tooth in focus/face out of focus shot.
