A little photo fun ...

Remember how the bestie twisted my arm to take an online photography class? Even with packing boxes and moving into a new house, I am so happy I decided to pay the 20 bucks and try it out. It isn't overwhelming or too time consuming and it has really made me think about how I'm taking photos. Since the manual for my camera is like a textbook, it hasn't been opened since last Christmas. I love that I'm learning more about the functions of my camera and how it works. We've been working with lighting, framing, cropping, and doing a lot with portraits. All perfect for a mom that loves taking photos of her little girl.

For the first few portrait assignments, I used Abby. That was hard work ... trying to adjust settings and focus on lighting and framing while chasing around a toddler. I'm sure I'll get there, but for the last assignment I decided to use our neighbors beautiful four year old instead. She was so easy to photograph and such a little model.

So I thought I'd share a few of my favorite photos with you. I still need some practice and I'm looking forward to learning so much more. I think I'm getting a little better though ... or at least, here's hoping!
