Pool Honeys

I've never enjoyed pools very much...I'm definitely a beach bum in every way. But, Gwyneth has made the pool so much more fun than every before...she loves the water, and we're hitting it up a few times a week, making the most of our YMCA membership. Here are a few pics from the 4th of July (Tricia's freckles are my favorite)...











BTW, I tried something new with my editing and really went for a lot more contrast than normal in most of these photos...was pretty happy with the results.

Wow! I love Gwyneth's curls and pigtails! Tricia is more beautiful than ever!
Well, I have to disagree with you... I love pools! But beaches are fun too...! =)

I love me some contrast! My pictures look so much better now that I figured out how to do that.

It's especially nice with a black and white photo...it really makes it pop.

I am not much into pools... I would have loved to say I am a beach bum.

There is something magic about kids and pools that makes it more fun. I think it is seeing them experience and discover new things.

So fun! We are pool people about to go on a beach vacation, and a little apprehensive about the sand mess. Nice to hear from a beach lover.

Keep the editing tips coming!
