Hello, Canon.

YES!  My sweet, wonderful husband bought me a DSLR camera! We did some research and decided the Canon T2i would be the best fit for us.  It's not the newest Canon, but it's pretty much the same as the T3i but without the swivel LCD screen, which we definitely do not need.  

I am so excited to learn as much as I can about this beauty.  I also can't wait to take it outside and shoot some pictures of Tanner with natural light.  But the 105+ temperatures are making that very uncomfortable.  Maybe next week when we are staying in lodging on base, instead of this apartment, we can go out in the morning and play. :)

I am definitely not great at using this camera yet, not even good.  But I will post some pictures anyway.  Maybe I can look back on these and compare to future pictures.  

So, don't judge me!  These are the first pictures I took!

This IS the very first picture I took. Too much light, I know.  But I love it anyway.

Check out those eyes! They're changing!  Looks like he will have his Momma and Daddy's hazel, green eyes!

I'm spending a lot of time on The Pioneer Woman's (my favorite chef!) Photography website learning as much as I can.  Pinterest helps too.  And my wonderful friends on my December 2011 Mom's Facebook page are a wealth of information as well.  I'm just SO excited! 

Now, to figure out how to edit pictures without spending $$$ on photoshop...


  1. Welcome to the club! I would recommend PhotoShope Elements. It's not as pricey and does all the same stuff, for amateurs like us - so I've been told!

  2. Thank you for the recommendation! I'll definitely look into that!
