Another one

from the other day. It's really hard for this kid
to take a bad picture. And he's getting smart enough
to want payment for posing. Go figure. Dang though,
with that face (and those eyes), how can I say no?!

Natural light

I am LOVING me some natural lighting...not to mention
the spring-like temps! I am hoping they are here to stay,
BUT...I won't get my hopes up. It IS only the 2nd week of
February. We're bound to have a cold snap sometime in the
near future. Let's hope next December! :)


I am LOVING my 50mm now that it autofocus's! These eyes
are going to be the death of me!

I will be glad when the trees and flowers start blooming.
Dull, brown backgrounds are really boring, so when all else
fails, add some texture.

Just a couple

Snagged a few this morning before school...so glad
it's starting to warm up and STAY warm. Everyone is so
pasty white,we're all looking forward to some sun!

Be Mine

When your mom is a photographer, you get homemade
Valentine's for school...with your picture on it! Well,
for the record, this is the first time...only because
I found the cute templates from MCP Actions. Jodi has
some cool stuff and I decided to have some fun this year.
And Hunter was game, so why not? Maybe it'll be a business
booster! :)

p.s. We will make a little cut on his fist and insert
a sucker! How cute is that?!

I dream of...

SPRING! We are waiting for ANOTHER round of
snow...we've only been waiting all day...we had a
taste of spring over the past weekend. Warm and
sunny...heaven! And as we deal with the dreaded
"s" word again, I hear 60 in the forecast again
for this weekend. I'm going to go dream some more.

Sunday was a beautiful day for pictures. The lighting
was lovely and I so wanted to take some portraits.
Unfortunately I had to bribe him to pose for me...
and it cost me $2! The Punk! :)

My favorite lens...wish I was better at manual focus!
Or had enough money to upgrade to the AUTOFOCUS! ;)

Dreamy eyes will be the death of me!

Note to self: Pay attention to your background before
taking the shot...it really was too funny to delete though!

Joy of Love Day 1 ~ what they do

I'm participating in Willette's The Joy of Love February
class and I (of course) am behind. But it's a work at your
own pace class, so I will continue along, capturing Love
wherever I happen to sniff it out!

This was the day 1 assignment...take a picture of someone
or something you love doing something they love. And since
DH wouldn't allow me to photograph him taking a bubble bath,
I had to move on to my next subject! ;) On top of that, since
it was getting late and I did not want to use my flash, I
had to crank up my ISO to be able to attempt a decent picture
in low light. I haven't decided which version I like better.
