My Very First DSLR Camera!

Can I just say how excited I am? I am really excited! I just got my first DSLR!! My wonderful husband got it for me, after I’d been jonesing for one for a while now. Especially since I took my first photography class this spring. It was called Momtography, put on by Beryl Ayn Young. I’m glad that I still have access to all the videos, because I’m still re-watching them, and learning more. Anyway, I was able to practice the steps in that class with the help of my wonderful sis in law, Cinnamon, who loaned me her camera, a Canon Rebel T5i! I loved it! And when I went researching to see what I might want to get for myself, I saw there were a few newer models in that same line. So, Joe got me the Canon EOS Rebel T6i, and it’s pretty rad. I look forward to taking and sharing a lot of pictures from it!

Even Homer is excited about learning more about photography, because the other day, he said excitedly, “Mama, let’s go out and take pictures of nature together!” So I got my new camera, and he took his iPad, and here are some of the images we took on our outing together!

Catch the Moment 366 – Week 39

267 | Sept 23, Fri – It’s the most wonderful time of the year… OKTOBERFEST!!! Joe and I got to go out on a date night, which we pretty much only do about once a year for Oktoberfest. It was rough trying to get out the door, many obstacles stood in our way, and then somehow, the stars aligned and it all worked out. Our amazing friend, Sarah, babysat for us, and then we were off, drinking beer, enjoying some brats and sauerkraut, and dancing the Chicken Dance. It was seriously a super fun night, and then when we got home, Homer was snug in bed, soundly asleep. So glad it all worked out so perfectly!
