    Got a couple of quick shots off this evening while I was watching Patrick take off and land at Pryor Field.

    Jade is a tough one to get smiling...so, instead we get...

    Ryan on the other hand...Grins and giggles all the time! So with Ryan, we get...

    a nice smile

  2. Neat B&W pics Leigh and I like your DOF isolation of the subject.

    They are both great, but Ryan looks so old here! I think he is only 6, right (I think he is the same age as my oldest). I know they grow up so fast. I like the BW on these also.

    Thanks Gordon. I love the 24-85...it's my "go-to-lens".

    Jessica...yes, Ryan will be 6 on August 7th. You are soooo right about how fast they grow up! I can't believe school starts back in 2 weeks...I'm ready, but I'm also not ready. We are trying to pack as much fun into these last few days as we can.

    Today we were going to go the Cooks Natural Science Museum. Unfortunately, I just realized it will be closed. :frown: So instead, we will go to Sci Quest.
     
  5. Leigh,
    Nice portraits. Ryan is getting to be so handsome. Love those freckles.

    Good looking kids and terrific portraits.
     
  7. Wow, Ryan really does look older than almost-6! :eek:  A very mature young lad already, and a lovely smile that shines from his eyes. I really like your BW conversion here too Leigh!

    Thank you, Terri. I'll make sure to tell Ryan you like his freckles. He loves them. He has a little girlfriend from school who has lots of freckles too...he says they are going to get married so their kids will have freckles.

    Thank you, Art.

    Thanks, Gretchen. When Ryan smiles, his whole face lights up!

    Thanks, Seneca. I guess after 6 years, he's finally getting used to being in front of the camera. Now, instead of making goofy faces or turning away, he immediately poses for me!

    Thanks, Mitch. He's growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday he was born...and now, he's the big brother! Looks like he's going to be tall...my brother, dad and grandfather are all over 6ft, as are many of the men on Patrick's side.
     
  12. Great images Leigh.

    Have to agree with others, Ryan looks so mature in this capture.

    Thanks you two. As doctors, do you know of any way I can keep him from growing up? :wink:
