photographing your kids naturally

I don't know about you, but it's rare for me to get natural looking photos of my kids. It seems like most of the time they either look stiff and posed, or they're a blur in a mediocre candid shot.  When I saw Rebecca Cooper's latest ebook from Ella Publishing Co., I was so excited to get my hands on it.


Don't Say Cheese! How to get great, natural photos of your kids (by Rebecca Cooper)

I always adore Rebecca's gorgeous photos.  She makes a work of art out of photographing her kids coloring with sidewalk chalk!  With my almost 2 year old daughter bouncing off the walls and refusing to sit still for a photo, I can't wait to read this.

 In other Ella news, August is digital month with articles in their free ezine each week on different aspects of digital scrapbooking.  I had the opportunity to write the kick off article, What Is Digital Scrapbooking?  The digital layout above was my artistic contribution, and some other very talented digital (not to mention hybrid and paper) scrapbookers contributed as well. The article contains helpful information for all levels of interest in digital scrapbooking, so be sure to check it out.
