Sunday Snapshot {Sweet love}


This picture melts my heart.

Spencer adores his little sister and as you can see the feeling is mutual with Lily.

The love that radiates on his smile makes my heart full.

I didn't ask him to pose...this is just what happens when these two are together:)

Spencer will be in 7th grade this fall. He is growing up right before our eyes and we are so proud of him.

We love his smile, his musical talent and easy going spirit!

his eyes never cease to captivate me...(ahhh if only I could have some eyelashes like those:)

He knows what Lily loves (like finding planes in the air)

He is patient when I take pictures and he is becoming interested in learning more so he can give it a try :)

The other day he said he had a dream that we would go into business together one day and he would do video and I would be the photographer!

He helps out when Lily is getting tired and ready to call it quits:)

Lily is one blessed little girl to have such a loving big brother!

We are humbled and so thankful that the Lord entrusted these two precious gifts to us.  Our prayer is that we raise them love and pursue Him more each day.  

The first picture was taken with my 
Nikon D80 50mm 1.4 lens

My settings were
aperture: f/2.8
shutter speed: 1/500
ISO: 160

I did some curves and levels and then ran Florabella's "add some drama" at lower opacity and some soft center fill light.  I also added her Vintage Page II bw texture.

They are quite the pair and you can tell the love and affection in these photos(and in all of your photos) is genuine. A wonderful bond between brother and sister.

I hope you are having a wonderful time on your trip and look forward to catching up when you return home!!!

Is it possible to make use of frameworks like ExtJS from RubyJS? If so, how would you do it cleanly?
