Happy 3rd day of Spring! Although our weather has been a bit chillier than I'd LIKE... we have had a handful of days where coats aren't needed and its fun to get dressed again! (I have been in such a rut when it comes to dressing for colder weather.. this happens every year around February/March!)
ettie! 8 months of you in our lives, I can't believe it! This month has been a big one for us, so many things to cover in our update! In the past 30 days you have become so strong and wriggly in our arms - we know you want to be able to move around so badly but at the same time you still hate being on your tummy and even though you are perfectly capable of crawling - you haven't quite figured out the mechanics.
I wanted to write this from a different point of view than something you would see in a typical photography course. I'm assuming if you are reading this, you are not interested in becoming a professional photographer, (and if so, my tips probably won't help you!) but rather just looking to take better photos - whether you are just an Instagram fanatic, a blogger, or someone who just wants to take good photos of your family and life around you.
BASICS! I love me some basics! Investing in a few good pairs of jeans and tees goes a longggg way. There are so many time where I scour my closet forever searching for something to wear..and I can't settle on anything... and then as soon as I decide to reach for the good ol jeans and tee I am always happy I did.
I'm slowly transitioning over to the...pink side. Maybe you have seen me write in the past how I hated pink over the last decade or so. The last time I really embraced the pink (and maybe eventually the reason why I ran from it for so long) was my senior prom when I wore a Peptol-Bismol shaded pink ball gown that was so poofy my date could have hid under it.
When I first met Brandon, we were in a summer class together while we were both studying abroad in Italy. He always had a camera with him on campus - his big Nikon D7000 (at the time I had zero knowledge on cameras, but this one looked pretty official). One the first times we ever hung out, he put the camera in my hands and taught me a few things about it - how to frame my subject and how to change the aperture to get what I wanted into focus.
