ISO 200 f/2.8 1/640 (all photos taken using a Nikon 50mm 1:1.4D lens)

Just before Easter- the part of Spring Break that shockingly didn't include ugly gray skies and rain- I took the opportunity for a little photo practice with a Spring cousins shoot... aka the perfect grandparents' Easter gift. Have you tried PicMonkey? A non-photoshopper like me sure does appreciate such an awesome free photo-editing site. Especially in light of Picnik's upcoming FINAL week! Currently, I'm just slightly obsessed with the delightful 'dusk' filter in PicMonkey's effects section.

These pics are absolutely perfect! The "light" and setting are amazing for those cute little faces. I bet Grandma and Grandpa LOVED their Easter present! No - how did you ever get that many children looking in your direction all at once??

Heather, your pictures are incredible! A future in photography-- at least to finance your craft/party planning expenses? :)

These are so good! I confess I'm STILL using right now. ;) But I've heard of picmonkey. Just haven't played around with it yet. I'm gonna have to check out dusk!
