from last week.

I didn't take as many as I wanted to because I was informed that you can't play monster trucks and hold a camera at the same time.

Quote of the day...

Is them all slave children?

Finally... a chance to post

Between making, grading and taking tests I haven't had much time to take pictures. Hopefully that will change this week. We have a Pampered Chef party tonight and a Birthday party on Friday.

These are the last pictures I took from a wrestling match on the 11th. I have a lot of respect for sports photographers. It's harder than I looks. I had to delete the majority of my shots due to focus issues. These are the best I could get.

Winter Homecoming

It seems that I shouldn't be going to dances any more since I haven't been in high school for almost 8 years but that hasn't stopped us yet! I wasn't sure how fun it would be since I already had a long day before we even got there but I had a great time taking pictures.

Check out all the cute people!

Lots of Cuties!

It seems that I have had the opportunity to photograph lots of little kids lately. I went to a baby shower on Saturday that was loaded with sweet little ones and then some family came to visit, more precious faces. I love it though since I don't have any little kids of my own to take pictures of. I'm not sure how much they liked it but I had a great time!

Sweet Lauren.. we have to stop calling her "baby" since she is two and a half.

Miss V was the cutest thing I have ever seen! She wasn't too sure about my camera until I let her turn the lens.

Could he be any sweeter?

It was nice to meet you baby E!

Practice makes perfect!

I'm still working on using my new remote. It takes some practice for sure, but I love it since I can actually get into some of my own pictures. When people look back at them they will probably wonder what I looked like since I am always behind the camera instead of in front of it!

Getting the fur child to lay still and keep her eyes open was a challenge, but I had some success (and help getting her to look at the camera).

I have to try harder to hide the remote in my hand. Maybe I can learn to shoot it through my fingers or something.

New Year Goals

Since no one else I have talked to is going to make any New Years Resolutions I decided maybe I could come up with a few. I don't know how well I will do with them but it's better to try and fail than to not try at all. (That makes sense to me, I don't know if it will make sense to any one else?)

1. Be more patient at home (This will be tough since I use up all of my patience with the darn kids at work)

2. Take at least 1 picture a day.

3. Save for our wedding. (This goes with Richie's "get out and stay out of debt" plan

I decided to get my new camera remote out for the first time yesterday. My first attempt was so terrible I had to post it. It seems all I needed was a 4 year old to show me what to do since Anthony pushed the button for the second shot and it as much better. Richie even sat for one with me (since I didn't bug him with the camera even the smallest bit all day)
