It came today!!!! My birthday and Christmas wish lists included the Cannon Rebel xsi camera and it arrived today. As fast as I could read the basic instructions and get the camera out of the box, I began taking photos. It was so exciting just to see the difference on the auto setting! Amazing! Not that I have dreams of becoming a photographer, I'll leave that to Sandy and Megan, but it is definitely going to improve our family memories, scrapbooks and blog! So while Eli was napping, I used the few subjects that I had on hand. Check out my first photos with a "grown up" camera...

I love this setting that makes the background blurry

You go girl!!! Is that fun or what?? Amazing how different already! Megan and I are bringing our cameras to shoot in Bodega so we can do some lessons. :)

I'm seriously impressed with that Little People figure picture! Nice work. I don't even want to show you my first pic with my camera:)

And yes, bring it to Bodega because Sandy and I have a beach photoshoot planned!

Congrats on your new camera!

Ooooh, fun! A new big-girl toy. :) I love that last picture of Grant. His eyes look so deep blue...terrific shot!

I hate you.

Ok, no I don't....maybe a little. I wouldn't be surprised if you did become a little photographer that could.

A great investment, and I'll snarl at you till I get one too :-)
