A couple weeks ago, my husband and our friend went to a football game, but our friend’s babysitter fell through at the last minute. So, I gladly took the opportunity to hang out with a couple of the cutest and sweetest little boys I know. Lucas (age 5) and Caleb (age 3) are so much fun. Caleb has been obsessed with his Superman costume that his awesome mamma made for him for Halloween, so that’s what he was wearing when we decided to head down to the park. And I’m so glad because it made for some really fun photos. But Caleb isn’t nearly the camera ham that his older brother, Lucas is. I couldn’t get enough of either of them. So without further ado, here they are:

A few days ago, I told you about my new camera and gave you a peek at the first photo shoot of Bridget I used it for (see that here). After a few long nights of processing, I’m back with the whole album. So without further ado, here it is:

I really couldn’t be more excited to have gotten a new camera! My husband and I decided to use some of our wedding gift money to make the purchase. After some research, we decided on the Nikon D5100, and so far, I think I’m in love.

I’m hoping to start a part-time photography business doing portraits for families, couples, and individuals. I’ve got a little work to do before I’m ready to officially start, but James Taylor (no, not that James Taylor, though I like him, too) from Outlaw Photography and PartTimePhoto.com has given me the resources and encouragement I needed to make the decision to work towards this goal.

And I’m lucky to have a friend and co-worker who is gorgeous and just starting to pursue modeling. We’ve both been practicing our respective skills on each other, and yesterday I had the pleasure of using my new camera at a really fun photo shoot of Bridget. I still have some processing to do, but I picked a few favorites and edited them each a few different ways. Culling down the 500+ photos is definitely the hardest part of the process for me. I’m working on it.

So here is a peek at yesterday’s shoot. I really love what I have so far! Let me know what you think. I’d love some feedback and/or photography advice, whether technical or business oriented. And as the main differences in these edits is the coloring (how much or how little saturation and/or color vs. black and white), I’d love to hear which style you like best. I like them all so much, I can never decide which to go with. Please, please, help me decide!

Meet my dogs

So, this post is mostly about sharing some gratuitous dog photos, but we’ll file it under “photography” and getting to know me and my little family. So here ya go.

That’s Kiko on the left and Sierra on the right. Kiko will be two years old in September, and Sierra is 13 years old (approximately — we’re not super sure exactly how old she is).

Again, Kiko. He pretty much always sports a bandanna. He started with a red one, but these days he’s all turquoise and lovin’ it.

And little Miss Sierra. She’s a cutie. She likes to be the boss.

Here’s another one of them together:

And we’ll end this little dog-lovin’ post with this one of Kiko:

So how about you? Do you all obsessively take photos of your pets? I just can’t help myself. And I can’t help but think that my future kids are going to either be little hams or hate me and my camera.
