The Schwartz's vs Cody's 8 Month Photo Session

So I pay an arm and a leg to have Shannon Payne Photography do a "First Moments" package with my kids.  I love her work, I really do but seeing how it's pretty much doubled since I had Sarah our next kid will not be getting the same treatment.  Anyway, part of the reason I spend a fortune is for the digital rights to the pictures.  That's why I can use them in the blog header and on my facebook page and so on.  And it takes me forever to make decision on prints so this makes it so I can print what I want when I want.  Like right now I'm thinking of going back and choosing one photo from each of Sarah's first moments sessions to try some of those cool make your own canvas print tutorials I've seen and if it works I'll do that with Cody's as well.  Plus it makes it so I can have a huge mantel picture that I change out on a regular basis for $9 by getting a 20x30 poster print at Costco and then spray glueing it to a foam poster board.

Anyway, all that to say I got my CD in the mail yesterday.  We got 33 images this session and I loved each and every one of them.  But the pictures are huge files so I'm only going to post a handful of my favorites for you all to enjoy.

I wish I had a talent like Shannon.  It would save me a fortune.  Instead I'm determined to learn how to use photoshop since my sister-in-law has the photography talent in the family.  I figure if I learn the tech part we can trade services for each other.
