How Precious! Both are such special pictures! And especially as Abi seems to content...baby pictures at our house seemed to always be a game of getting the babies NOT to cry. :lol:

I jusy wanted to say that the bottom one is just beautiful! I love the way you posed him--it looks western in a very cool way. :)

(BTW, I'm the girl that you sent the links to over Yahoo, in case you're wondering who this "weirdo" is. :D)

Such sweet shots Bethany! First child?

What has helped you the most in developing your photography skills? What did you think of the NYIP? Would you recommend it?

God bless!

This has nothing to do with the pictures but I do think that they are cute. On Sunday I loaned your CD to a family from my church. And one of their daughters said that I look like you!!! I think that we do look a little alike. Maybe someday we could meet and you can decide for yourself.

Bethany, I appreciate those adorable baby pics. It was refreshing to see something other than the baby on black surface... or in a basket... etc. This came through as so heartfelt, with the tenderness and the contrast of the tough daddy and the innocent babe plus the care it was enveloped in made it so special. I just loved it :)
keep up the good work!

She is so CUTE! How old is she Bethany?

Bethany said...

Yes -- Abby is Ragnar and Angela's first baby, and she is almost three months old now!

Sarah --
as far as what has developed my photography skills, I've tried to do a lot of reading and just observing other great work. And I wouldn't really advise NYIP. While they do have some good material, they also have some material that I was not happy with (picture-wise). I would recommend IPS wholeheartedly -- their web page is: http://prizewinningphotography.com/ Totally amazing classes with Christian foundations and instructors. :)

Sarah said...

Thanks Bethany for your advise on NYIP. I have taken two of IPS's courses! Which photography books have you found most helpful?

Blessings,
Sarag

Bethany said...

As far as portraits -- anything by Douglas Allen Box or Barbara Box (a husband/wife team) I have really, really enjoyed!!
