Together Forever

When my friend asked me to take her family pictures, I had no idea that they'd dress so cute! They look like little pieces of candy! One of my friends said, "I'm getting a toothache just looking at them!"

1/200, f5.6, ISO 400, outdoors, no flash, re-worked in PSCS3 to get the feel I wanted.

This is a re-work and re-submit for the monthly theme.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: -0.33, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 50.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D

Thanks, everyone!

Nancy - it's funny you say that. Not long after these pictures were taken, she found out she WAS, indeed, expecting baby number four - which was a total "surprise!" :) #8209373
