The picture captures them pretty well, I have to say.
It does indeed. Love the hat your daughter has. Blue looks very good on her.
Your daughter looks like a young Ameilia Pond. Coincidence? I think not! :-)
Fan-TAS-tic cloche on Athena. Here’s hoping she’s a trendsetter. I could use one just like it in lime.
love that picture! love that gorgeous hat more! i must own that hat. *googlefu time*
That is an awesome hat. Reminds me of the awesome blue hat I had in high school, though mine was a fedora.
Great picture…Athena has a wonderful mix of both of her parents!
It is definitely a beautiful picture! I could have sworn that hat was purple. Must be gettin’ old. Love you all . . .
The hat is purple, actually.
Athena’s hat is AWESOME. I must find one for myself.
Man, you totally scored. I mean, really. You’re an awesome guy and all that, but how lucky are you have such a gorgeous wife and fashionably beautiful daughter?
Whew! That’s a relief, to know that I was correct to think hat/shirt are purple. I do have terrible eyesight, so I wouldn’t have been altogether surprised if they were blue, but all the same, I’m glad I was right.
Lovely wife and daughter you have there, sir!
You’re going to need a Shotgun of Loving Protection for Athena /soon/.
Love the purple hat…it’s so fancy!
We’re adopting soon, and I can only hope that the kid we get at the baby store is anywhere near half as awesome as yours.
I am wary of the thoughts rolling around under that purple brim. I mean look at those eyes. That smirk. There’s trouble a-brewin’.
Loooove Athena’s hat, very ladylike!! Thumbs up for her clothing choices ;o)))
She sure favors her mother, doesn’t she? Great picture, John.
Great purple hat! Very pretty ladies!
Beautiful picture. I am so wanting an awesome purple hat like Athena’s.
Great photo! Sun back lighting and fill flash used to perfection. Your photography skills showcase your beautiful family.
Did she fight a jaeger for it?
and if it is really purple then see if you left the white balance setting on ‘indoor’ or something.
automatic white balance *usually* does a good job, but not always. I have gotten in the habit of selecting a white balance manually.
photoshop should have a tool for white balance correction. click on something in the picture that you know is white and it will balance the colors so the object appears white. you might be able to click on tha cloud and correct the photo so the hat looks purple. otherwise you’ll have to play around with color temperatures or something.
the best way is to cary around something white and take a picture of it in the same setting the other pictures wil be taken. my canon has a mode where I select the ‘custom white balance’ and it asks me to take a picture of something white. then it calibrates all photos after that to exactly match the lighting conditions you are in.
That hat looks absolutely a-dor-a-ble on Athena. seriously.
They were trying to escape?
They look so much alike in the picture. The eyes especially. Beautiful.
That hat is the bee’s knees.
I have no idea why that’s a compliment, but it is. Lovely family, John.
Once again, a wonderful picture of your wife and daughter. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Looks like Athena got your wife’s looks and your smirk. Good trade, methinks. ;)
I’ll just add to the chorus of, “Wow, Athena has a great hat!”
I am in utter love with that hat. And it so suits Athena.
gorgeous subjects, wonder picture, excellent hat. Tell Athena she’s good at picking out chapeaus.
It is so cool how much you love your spouse and daughter, and how open you are about it. Yay for happy families!
