Sweet Baby Axil

I had the opportunity to go to Utah a few weeks back to attend the blessing of my newest nephew Axil. He's such a sweet little man. Sallie and Jesse braved the onslaught of pictures I forced them to take, in between preparing for the blessing, getting their twin girls ready and making food for the luncheon after. What an amazing pair! I will post about my super fun weekend later. For now I wanted to post the pictures I took. Now I am not, repeat, am NOT a photographer. The color is off, as is the lighting. They're a little out of focus in some cases as well. BUT, I LOVE to take pictures. It also helps to have willing subjects who are so easy to photograph. I am constantly taken aback with how beautiful my little sister is. (You should know Sallie, secretly we all hate you.) Not to mention Jesse is the perfect compliment to her. The epitome of "tall, dark and handsome". Now, one day I do plan on taking a class and oh yeah...buying a flash. Then you may judge my pictures. Until then, no dice. Sallie, hopefully you've checked your e-mail, the pictures are there. :o)

This is the Black and White Version
Color and light.
The twins had a picture on the drum...Axil didn't fit as well. ;-)
My sister was such an angel for braving this one.
Thanks Mike ;-)
