Say Cheese :)

When Sadie was a baby, we didn't have very many professional pictures taken of her.  Don't get me wrong, I wanted to be one of those mom's who had pictures taken at 3 months, 6, 9 & 12 months, and then every year after.  Financially it just wasn't something we were capable of at the time... Now, we have the ability to be a little bit more frivolous, but by no means are we.  So... I decided to get cute little outfits for the girls, and spend the money to have some professional pictures taken. That was, until we planned a trip to Vegas for my birthday in July.  Now, I'm on this big no unnecessary spending kick. Which obviously means no professional pictures... :( Ok, now I enjoy writing, and I've always thought I'm good at it, but I also enjoy photography.  I don't know the fancy terms,  I don't have a $500 camera, I've never taken a class, I know the lighting should be good, and you need to have patience to get the perfect shot. So by no means am I a professional, I wouldn't even classify myself as a amateur.  That did not stop me from dressing the girls up in their cute outfits, and finding the perfect back drop, I was very determined... Well remember I said you need patience? That is a understatement when you trying to photograph a 4 month old. If she wasn't crying, she had her fingers in her mouth or wouldn't look at the camera.  And don't get me started on the 5 year old, she was just as difficult.  Overall, I got some really cute pictures, that I will be able to print up and send out to family and friends for a lot less money.  Today I had fun playing photographer, it let me try something new and different for not a lot money.. My hubby should be proud of me, I saved him some money...lol.
Here our a few shots that I got today, I don't want to reveal them all, because I know I have at least 1 follower who will be getting the finished product.  So enjoy friends!!

Til my fingers dance again.... love & happiness
