Goat Girls



This last Saturday we went out to Ross and Cathryn's house in Gig Harbor to take pictures. Their oldest daughter was visiting with her husband, so they wanted to get some family pictures while they had everyone together. They were also going to a wedding later that day, so the three younger girls were all wearing their Easter dresses. I got some really cute pictures of the girls with the goats.



I thought the lighting was neat, but the processing was kind of tricky. I'm still not really sure on the color.

I only got a few pictures of the three girls together here, because right after this the goat stepped backward and very nearly pushed Cathryne into the pond. I was so sure she was going to fall in. Whew!



Kate got to help feed the fish...



...and the chickens!



It was very sunny and probably the warmest day we'd had so far. (Doug ended up on sweater duty, as you can see here.) It was also our first time going across the new bridge. It's been open for almost a year, but we just haven't had any reason to go over that way. Kate thought it was pretty cool.

Those are some tall goats!!

I like what you did with your photos--there's a very vintage feel there, with a brownish undercast, it seems like...

Yay for replaced cameras!

I'd love to hear any tips you have for processing, I'm just dipping into the photoshop arena.

Great pictures, Helena. Kate is getting to be such a big girl, and she is lovely.
