Landon and I gave each other (ok really more for me) a camera for Christmas this year. I have been wanting a DSLR for about a year now and am super excited to learn how to take better photos with it. I purchased a Canon T3 from Amazon - they have a fantastic deal right now here. It is very basic, but perfect for what I need it for!
UPS dropped our package off at 9 p.m. and these were some of the first shots I took with the camera. I just couldn't wait for the girls to wake up the following morning for a little "photo shoot"! Many of you asked how I have learned some of the different techniques such as "bokeh". I have been searching articles online and pinning to my Photography Board on Pinterest. You can follow my board and we can all learn together!!!!
Here are my sweet girls the next morning on a cloudy and chilly day! We had such a good time, even if Lauren wasn't in the picture-taking mood!
Over the weekend we took the girls out to take a few more pictures. I Love how sweet Brooke looks holding the picture frame.
This is one of my favorite photos so far! This is sweet Lauren in front of (about 8 feet) our Christmas tree. I love the "bokeh" in the background, but most of all I love her sweet face and those dark brown eyes.
I have been working on the layout/appearance of the blog the last few days. A big thanks to my friend emily for helping fix my template and creating the pages up top. I have a tab designated for recipes, and my plan is to move all the recipes from This Hungry Mama over here so I won't have to keep track of both blogs. :)
