Beach Babies

These two cousins were so much fun to photograph while we were at the beachside in Florida. They both just loved basking in the sun in their basket. 
This was our last night and we spent it at the ocean. Benjamin grilled tilapia and we set up the Pack N Play so the babies could just relax and not have to be in the sand all day.
It was so much fun looking at our little camp site while ridding the waves. Little Zane's head bobbing up and down in the Pack N Play as he
 watched his uncle grilling and Jon rocking Winston to sleep next to them. Such happy memories. 
Eliza and I just loved swimming together, and then we would switch and the boys would relax in the sea as we 
watched and played with the babies :)
No worries many more fun pics to come. 
Elizabeth is also posting all of our fun over at her page

It looks like ya'll are having a great time!!! I think it is SO SO fun that you married brothers! How cool that there will always be two families to visit, to share, to get along with forever!
I Love you, you sweet momma!

What sweet beach pictures, Marie! How did you give the pictures that amazing "painted look"? I just love it - I had to show them all to my mom and she liked them so much too.

I am back on the camera hunt again after talking to you and Elizabeth about your nice cameras. Could you tell me what kind of camera you are using? I think I have asked before, but I did not make note of your answer.

I am glad you had a safe trip back to Ohio and I hope you are getting settled in nicely. Tea with you and Elizabeth yesterday was simply delightful! :)

Marie said...

Thanks so much Meredith! You make me blush :)
I used the free photography site called picnic which I upgraded to and when you upgrade they allow you to add textures to your pictures. I have been wanting to get photoshop for editing and enhancing photos but haven't been able to afford it yet so I have stuck to picnic for now.

About the camera, Elizabeth and I both use Olympus. Elizabeth's is Olympus e- 500 which is an older model then mine. Jon spoiled me rotten and got me an Olympus e-30 which I love using. It has some really fun art features that I have used and are extremely easy. But I also recommend looking into a Cannon SLR or a Nicon SLR, they have pretty good reviews as well.

I am curious to find out if you end up investing in one of these beauties, I think you will inspire me in this field if you do end up getting one. I can't wait to see London through your eyes :)

Well, I was going to ask about the photos too. They're exquisite, but I have my answers in your reply to Meredith.
Of course, the *photos* aren't as gorgeous as the *delights* in the photos!! Edible. Absolutely edible, scrummy, delicious.... I'll stop now. I'm beginning to drool!
Soooo glad you had time together.
Love, Anne x

I just love these pictures, that sounds like such a relaxing nice day at the beach. The ocean is so pretty!

Pam said...

Well, you've already heard my response over the phone, but I am still going "gaga" over them again as I
take another look. I love Anne's response and just have to say "ditto" for me. Make me a post card of them. Gotta have em.
Love Mom

I love the effect you put on these pictures marie, good job! These are adorable! Sigh, I miss the beach....

Pam said...

I got Dad here with me going "gaga" over these pictures with me now. He can't take it either. Wants to get his hands on those precious babies too.
Love you

What a great idea to take a pack n play for the little ones. I think I'll copy that idea if the need ever arises. :)

The pictures are truly adorable. Such sweet baby boys!
