field day 1

Despite the rainy forecast, Sat. morning dawned sunny & bright! As I'm looking out my kitchen window, i catch a glimpse of the gorgeous sun rays shining through our olive tree still glistening from the rain the night before! I knew this was my chance to debut! It's only 7:15....the babies are awake, the hubby is fumbling for the coffee pot, no breakfast is made, but it's now or never! We all loaded up in the truck, and head out to the nursery...and we're we the best looking, pajama clad camera crew you've ever seen!

I focused mainly on aperture, putting my camera on aperture priority and experimenting with the different depths of field! Thank goodness for digital cameras...the luxury of taking several shots of each frame is priceless!



The color is in its prime right now, and I found myself wishing I already had a trained eye to compose creative pictures of such gorgeous display in nature!



This shot caught my attention as I was trying to find the best lighting to take another shot! I'm looking up at the sun, and this branch sticking out against the blue sky just struck me!





I love moss, and all things mossy! This color of green is just yummy...no matter how you look at it!
And that's a wrap for the day! I have to credit my hubby for his willingness to drive me around, and patience as I stooped, climbed and leaned in and on his truck to take these photos!
We're off to Ohio for the week, so next up is practicing my shutter speed on all the active little ones and their antics over the holiday weekend!
Wishing you a a most blessed Thanksgiving!

hang in there.

I'm getting there...I've made my way through one photography book, and halfway through another one! This gorgeous fall season provides perfect photo opts, if I could just get out from under the dirty dishes, diapers, clothes, faces, and floors...and step foot out my front door! I'm not well rehearsed in the "drop all and just go" motto, but that's what it must come down to!
And since no post is complete without some sort of photo...here's a couple to throw at ya!




...be back soon!

it's official...


As an early christmas present...we are now first time owners of an dSLR camera! I'm posting this to ask for your forbearance as I learn how to use the thing! Hopefully, as an end result...my posts will be much more lively in the form of quality photo taking! We all know how hard it is to capture those slip second moments of your two year olds' newest stunt or infants "first" times!

...And since you asked, here's a quick shot of our 8 week old! ;)

low ridin'

He got all dressed for church...and apparently got bored waiting on the rest of us to get ready! I'm sure if this thing had an engine, we would've all been left behind! ;)
