As I looked through the pictures more and more later than night, I began to fall in love with the shot I shared with you on Saturday. It might even be one of my all-time favorites of Livia. :-)
Here are a few more outtakes from that evening.
I love how it looks like she's trying to get a grasp on the balloons - LOL! :-) (The taming of the Tornado?)
I don't know what it is...I'm always a big fan of deep blue skies with swirly clouds, but for some reason the black and white conversion is more magical to me.
OK, this is certainly an outtake in every sense of the word, but to me it is imperfectly perfect! Actually I didn't even realize I had captured this moment until we got home. I can almost see the dust being kicked up from the gravel as Livia threw herself into daddy's arms. ♥♥ (Her skinny little legs just melt my heart!) :-) This shot on a giant canvas would make me happy.
And finally, here's a shot that was somewhat my goal of the evening. A silhouette! Not the picture of my 3 kids with the balloons as I'd planned, but still a sweet reminder of the evening.
I definitely think the balloon/silhouette idea deserves a re-do, so we'll see. :-) Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
