D-A-D, Birthday gift

For Mr. G's birthday present (from the kids) I took some pictures with my trusty chalkboard as a prop. I love the way the collage turned out. This isn't the exact collage that I framed and gave to him, but it's the same pictures and placement. I made the collage that we gave him on a photo printing site. This one was quickly made on an iPhone app.

I love the bottom picture. It looks like they are cuddling but Noah is trying to fit Noelle's shoulder in his mouth. :)

Here are some of my favorite pictures that didn't make the cut (straight out of the camera).

"I didn't do it"

"Roar!"                                                                         "Here she goes again with that camera."

"Mom said it's my turn to hold the chalkboard! Hands off, sis!"

And my pretty princess. It's always hard to pick a picture of her, they are all so cute.

I love this one too.


  1. What a great idea! They are the cutest!

  2. LOVE this idea, will definitely remember for the future, I pinned it too! :)

  3. How do you get that nice lighting/white background at home? These pictures look professional!

  4. Lauren and Joe -
    I took the pictures in my master bedroom. We have white curtains that let in gorgeous natural light. You can see what I'm talking about in this post:
    I took the pictures with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I'm also really lucky to have 2 kids that don't mind a camera in their face.

  5. Such a cute idea! Mr. G is certainly one lucky Dad and husband!

    ps I love that it looks like they're cuddling but that you know what's really happening :)

  6. Great collage - and GREAT idea!! I'm sure that is something dad will treasure forever!
