Homecoming Fashion

Last Saturday was the big High School Homecoming dance. My two boys actually ended up dressing alike, not on purpose. Elijah's date bought leopard shoes w/ a red bow. My goal was to find a skinny, retro 80's style leopard print tie.

I thought it would look so cool, match his date & stand out from the crowd. But I couldn't find one anywhere, so we had to go w/ a red tie just like Adam's (thus the twin look) They didn't go together so no one knew until I posted these pictures!

and...mine!LOL!

Adam left with friends & we headed over to the house where the bus was going to pick the kids up to take pictures. So here's a little bit of how it all went down...Homecoming Fashion in Orange County, CA.

Elijah is an inch taller than his date, until she wore these shoes!

the girls fell over & the guys were cracking up
(the lil' guy pushed them)

bet ya couldn't tell the girl in front is a model?

can you believe they are 14, 15 & 16 year olds?

Hye, Lisa.

What a great time you had. :]
Oh yesh, the picture of the moon, so beautiful. :]

The beautiful moon was only for 2 days but we are lucky enough to have the chance to watch it.

LOL.. I know it looks like it could've been a fashion shoot!

Thanks for your comment, Lisa. My biggest tip for shooting buildings -- use a wide angled lens - 35mm or 24 mm. That way you get context. If you have a tilt & shift lens, that would be even better. The other tip is to try to fill the frame. For the building that is the focus of your shot, keep it out of the center of the photograph. Go for diagonal lines.

You all had a wonderful time indeed! Your boys are great and I know how proud of them you are! You all make really beautiful family together. All those girls and boys look beautiful and happy…the youth itself is beautiful, anyway. But you Lisa, you certainly have a secret recipe for eternal youth and beauty. :-)
