Over the weekend my nephew celebrated his second birthday. I thought that this was a fantastic opportunity to take my camera along and take a few photos. I wanted to make sure that I took a couple shots of each of my nieces and nephews. I figured that this would result in at least one photo of each child that I was happy with.

I took those ten and did some post production work to them (mostly cropping) and began emailing them out to family members.
In the end I spent a fun afternoon with family and came away with several great shots of my nieces and nephews to frame.
