I Love my Husband!!!

I have really wanted to get into photography lately and can't stop thinking about it nor talking about it. I visit numerous photography websites and blogs each day and just day dream. I try my hardest to be creative with my little 5megapixle Samsung; however, I am usually disappointed. Well yesterday Wade finally took the plunge and surprised me with a Canon Rebel XSi. I love it... I love him!! Although there is so much I don't really know yet, I am learning. I am halfway through reading the manual, then I'll move onto the software, then more online tutorials. If anyone knows anything about photography and wants to give me advice or tips, you are more than welcome to tell me or even show me!!! I am so excited!!! Can you tell how excited I am? I am so excited!!!
This is what my new camera looks like! The flash pops up when you use it.

Last night I began reading me manual intently. I've learned a lot so far, but I still have a long way to go!

Today, I took a few pictures in the park. If you enlarge this picture, you can see Aubrey's 2 beautiful teeth. They make her look mean huh?

It was fun taking these pictures, but cold too!

Congrats on the camera!! It looks like a good one! I want a couple new lens' for my Nikon, and some other fancy stuff but for now I'm happy with the basics. hehe You're going good so far as just reading the manual and everything, just keep learning! The two pics from the park were already adorable.. hehe
I was looking at your sewing projects too, love the apron!! lol seriously!

Great pics Katie! Looks like a great camera. Todd's is a Rebel XT. We love our camera. Though, we're not super professional on it at all. Todd uses photoshop mostly. You should download it if you don't have it already. That picture w/ Aubrey's 2 teeth looks like Wade!

Wow!! We love Aubrey's new teeth!! And that pic of her standing at the tree is amazing!! Can you send us a copy of that one? We like your camera and the table runner and apron. You did a super job sewing!! When you move here, you can make items for a new shop in town that is selling only things created by Ritchie County residents! We also love the pic of Aubrey getting ready to go sledding as well as the one of the two of you!!! You two are so beautiful!!
Love, MOM and DAD

That's awesome! Funny, cuz I just got a new camera too the day I read this post. Taking pictures is so fun, especially when you have a cute baby to take pictures of. Aubrey is standing up so well in that picture!
