I am no camera techie- I don't even know what DSLR stands for unless I sit and think about it really hard, which I'm not going to do right now!  Or even google it- because I'm too excited to share the photos I've taken with my NEW AWESOME CAMERA!!!  All I know is this is the most awesome thing ever.  It takes the best pictures.  I love it.  I regret regret regret not just sucking it up and saving up for one a long time ago!  They are so much more affordable now, though- and I'm sure the technology is even better (like, I just have to choose which "mode" I want to shoot in- I don't have to adjust anything like a real photographer would.  "Kids", "food scene", "portraits", and "candlelight" are a few preset "scenes" I've played with and they are all amazing.  Obviously "portrait" is my favorite because it comes out with the highest quality- but even on "kids" I've gotten shots of the kids I would never get with my iPhone or old camera (which has been collecting dust in a drawer for 2 years because it just wasn't that much better than my phone camera).

So, without further adieu, here are the best pictures I've ever taken in my life! I can't wait to cover my entire house with photos :) As you can see- what began as some tinkering with my camera became an all day Spiderman photoshoot!

 I love love love this girl.

 Eating mulch- per usual!
Oh my heart explodes when I see this picture of my precious Spidey.
Dax: "Mom, you just call me if you need anything."
Me: "Ok!  I sure will."
Dax (from the other room, 3 seconds later): "OK!  CALL ME NOW!"

I'm hell bent on making Dax and Tate's birthday party invitations this year.  Why?  Because I'm stupid. But this is SO the picture I'm going to use for Dax's, I think! (Dax is having a Super Hero party!)

 I'm not very good with indoor shots yet- I need to play around some more with the settings, I guess- but it's still better than what I would've taken!

LOVE the camera! I am in the process of saving up for one as well and I am super jealous of your pictures!!!
If you have never heard of the following website it will change your life - or you cost of large pictures! nationsphotolab.com this is the site that professional photographers use and then jack up the price for you. The first time I saw it it made me mad to see how much our photographer was pushing up the price. BUT they have invitation cards that are AMAZING and allow you to do front and back for very cheap! We've used them for almost all of Claire's birthdays.
