Black & White Wednesday - Chloe

I love black and white photographs. There's something so very timeless and classy about them. So when I ran across Lisa's Black & White Wednesdays on her blog, The Long Road to China, I just had to join in!

By the way, if this is your first visit to my blog, welcome! My name is Angie. I'm a stay at home mom of four young kiddos...Gabe, 6; Cooper, 4; Chloe 2 and Gavin, 5 months. I also do freelance graphic design and recently added portrait photography to my business. Busy, yes. Blessed, definitely! My husband, Jason, is a youth pastor and county supervisor. We are high school sweethearts that will have been married ten years this summer! Hooray! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'd love to 'meet' you, so please feel free to leave a comment!

Here's my photo for this very first Black & White Wednesday. It's a photo I took about two months ago of my daughter, Chloe.



And here it is in color, so that you can see the difference...



I do love it in color too, but like the way the black and white shows the catch lights in her eyes. They just sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!

You have an amazing family and incredible talent. Chloe is gorgeous. I'm not sure which I like better. You can't see her lovely baby blues in the B&W but still can tell she's a doll.

Blessings~

Thanks for stopping by today. It is so nice to meet you!

Your kids are adorable. I love the black and white picture, but I especially love the picture in your header! That wagon is sooo cute!

P.S. Is Chloe's dress Matilda Jane? It looks familiar!

Hi Angie,
I'm glad you stopped by my blog, and thank you for the compliment too.
What a sweet photo of your daughter. There's some serious cuteness going on there. :)

The Sanders Family said...

Thank you all for all the feedback and complements! Nice to 'meet' you all :)

Jodee...Chloe's dress is actually made by Kait Emerson. She has a similar style to Matilda Jane clothing, which I love! You can find her at www.kaitemerson.com. I have bought a lot of items from her for Chloe, and have been extremely impressed with the quality and look of the clothes!

And the rest of your family (including YOU)? Stunning!

They are both stunning & uniquely my favorite in their own ways! See, I can't possibly pick!
