Rain, Rain, Go Away...


Of all the days to rain... the day after Steve gave me an early birthday present... a NEW camera! :) I was so excited to use it, I couldn't sleep. No, seriously! I'm really not joking.

So, I made it work... had to rearrange my furniture in my living room, but we got some light from the windows!


Just a little explanation on why the little guy looks so beat in the picture below... Kanyon and the sidewalk got in a fight and the sidewalk won.


I've made it a goal of mine to get more pictures with me in them. I don't want to look back and never have pictures of me and my family. So today I start! Not the best ones, but I love them because it's me and my little boy! :)



Getting all three of us was just too much to ask for my first try. ;)

Love your new camera! We just might have to get some more family pics!:) We had fun with guys tonight-even though the kids were crazy. maybe we'll have to go out without the kids.

I just love your pictures, they are always amazing! You are very inspiring to me.

How cool to get a new camera, what kind did you get?

I hope that you don't mind me commenting, I mostly just wanted to compliment you on your amazing photography!

Becky - Thank you!! I'm loving figuring this monster out! So far, I've been really impressed with it. A lot less fumbling than with the Rebel when you change your settings. :) Can't wait to actually get it outside!

Destiny - Yes, tonight was tons of fun! Why the heck haven't we gone out without kids before??? That is the best idea I've heard in a while. :) P.S. I'm already working on your Christmas card!!

Bryce & Brenley - Thank you for the compliment and I don't mind at all! I just got the Canon 5D... I had the Canon Rebel XT for a while and it was time to move on. :)

ooohh! Happy birthday to you!!! How fun. Were you eyeing this or was it totally unexpected?? Sorry i couldn't call you tonight. I called mom back on my way home and didn't get off the phone with her until almost 10. We were discussing a "situation" I am having with Maddi. I will call you tomorrow. I could use imput from you as well :)

That is so awesome! Happy Birthday!!!! Those pictures came out great. Do you like it a lot better then the rebel? Poor Kanyon, that must have hurt!

Jill said...

Happy early Birthday !!!! LOVE the shots & LOVE seeing you in them more. I try to make an effort once a month. ;)

Lillian said...

That is exciting about the new camera. I can only imagine your excitement! The photos look great!

Meghan said...

Thank you all!! :) I'm really enjoying playing when I have the time.

Mical - This particular camera was TOTALLY unexpected... a cheaper camera was what I hoped and hinted for... typical Steve strikes again! ;) Oh and can't wait to hear about Maddi...

Meghan said...

Lindsay - Yes, I do like it lots better than the rebel... changing settings is easier and just makes sense... :) We need to get together again soon!
