Photography Class - Day 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13

Day 8:
Gifts from the heart
There have been so many gifts my husband has given me. Gifts ranging from pricey to the little gifts he gives me that don't cost anything... like quality time. I thought about so many things and then I looked down and saw my wedding ring. A BIG gift from his heart. In 2008 I got a gift of commitment, love, and faithfulness. This gift held a promise of a marriage and a life together forever. This gift was the beginning of our life together. The band my husband gave me was his great aunts as well. How cool is that? 

Notice the blurred background? YAY for me!
This is actually on Auto... Macro... Natural light... but, flash was on.

Day 9:
Passions and hobbies
Early last year father in law called me and asked if I could be his wedding photographer. At first I was thrilled that he thought I was capable of such ability... and then I realized... I have to do a great job! What the heck did I know about this? I did a little reading and shooting here and there... and... Here are a few photos I took from my Canon G11. 

I'm not a professional nor do I claim to be. But, I would say photography is a passion/hobby to me. I love it! I would love to learn and expand more on this passion... perhaps when Jake is a little older I can go back and take classes at my Alma Mater?

Day 10:
Where they are comfortable
While I was cleaning up around the house I looked over to where my boys were laying and saw them snoozing together. This is my husbands favorite spot on the couch, and Jake's favorite spot to lay on his daddy. I thought this picture was great! My boys. :)

Day 11: 

I'm clearly learning how to adjust my camera properly. Even though I don't have the SLR, I think I'm doing a pretty good job with my trusty G11. 

My dream is to become my own photographer. Don't get me wrong... this momma LOVES to get pictures taken (and anyone that knows me... knows that!). However, I think I'm totally capable of taking pictures of my son and family. I guess my dream is to get an upgraded camera and learn how to use all functions on it.

The picture below is a picture of my G11 in the box. The box isn't in great condition... I aggressively open my Christmas gifts. ;)

Day 12:
There isn't much to say about this picture... When you look into the eyes of a child there is innocence and peace. He is my everything. I thank God everyday for Jake. He is my angel. I adore him to pieces. I can't go on enough about him.

Day 13:
Everyone morning Grant takes Brady out for a walk. He walks the dog before he goes to work. I walk the dog in the afternoon, and then Grant walks the dog again before bed. Usually on Saturday or Sunday  my husband and I take a walk to our local shops and have lunch. It was a beautiful weekend! Sun was shinning and it wasn't very hot out. Just perfect out.
Auto...don't judge ;)

So, I have decided since I'm so darn busy to do a weeks worth of pictures in one blog! I CAN DO THIS!


  1. Aw, the baby is so cute :)

    Beautiful pictures! I found you on bloggy moms. I love the header too!


  2. The picture of Grant and the dog actually turned out really well. I have found that sometimes when I am outdoors if I have the flash on, those pictures turn out the best! I love seeing all of your pictures!

  3. Coming over from Bloggy Moms. Wonderful pictures -- you have talent!
