Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I'm a procrastinator.. I'll admit it.. and well... on top of being that .. I hate.. hate spending a lot of $$ on pictures.. I'm sorry.. I know some do it for a living...and I'm not here to debate the cost factors in it all... I just hate paying that amount of money. YES! I love my children dearly... and have more picture of them than dollars in my savings....but I have NEVER paid large amounts of money for their picture... Maybe I'm saving all that up for their wedding days!!

So.. it was coming down to the wire.. my daughter's senior picture NEEDS to be in by October 1st.. We did pictures yesterday... YESTERDAY!! So I did about 150 pictures.. so we could find the RIGHT one for the yearbook!!
So I'm going to share with you some of the pics I took.. they have not been photoshopped or touched up... I'm still battling with the program!!



















I have to admit.. the above picture.. looks a LOT like me when I was her age!!

Those are only a few that I have resized.. we had about 1 hour to cram those 150 photo's before field hockey practice... and here it is.. 8pm and we STILL don't know which photo is hitting the yearbook.. and she's on the committee...she takes after her mother.. if she likes it or not!!

Kori said...

She is absolutely lovely. What great pictures. I like them all and can't decide on just one. Good luck on picking just one.

Sandy said...

Your daughter is very beautiful and you took wonderful photos of her. :)
It is hard just to pick just one to use.
So which one did she select?

Donna said...

I don't think you can make a wrong choice!

Who needs to spend lots of money when you take wonderful pictures like you do!

Let us know which you pick!

Erin said...

Krystyn said...

They are great!

I like the one where she is off center to the right and the flowers are on the left the best.

You did a great job. I wouldn't spend money on anything else, either.

Tanya said...

She is such a beautiful girl!

OMG! Why pay someone to take photos when you take them so professionally yourself!

I pick #2, it was hard though, they are all so perfect and she is gorgeous. I too love that mane of hers.

Tam said...

OOO YOU ROCKED those PICTURES!!!! She is a Beautiful young woman!

Crossroads Cottage said...

What beautiful photos. I can't believe you took those yourself! (And I agree, I can't see paying so much for pictures. I guess I'm cheap. :)

glitzen said...

fabulous! You must visit my blog and tell me your favorites of my "school pics" of my girls...if you have time. I love your style, and I am a wanna-be photographer with a point and shoot for now.
I love the photo with her standing by the wall, and the road in the background. I also love the close up with her to the side and the colorful flowers off to her side. Just gorgeous! She is lovely.

She is a beautiful girl. My daughter will be a senior next year.
