Moving on...

After the little pity party I threw for myself the other day, I realized that all of your comments are right. I AM good, I AM nice, I AM likable...and I CAN'T please everyone, and that just has to be GOOD ENOUGH.

I'm taking a cue from Jodie and from here on out, I'll just say I'm "misunderstood". She's right, it does sound SO much better than "unliked"!

Moving on...

Yesterday, I was able to have a little photoshoot with an adorable little 2 year old that we know very well...he did SO good!! Here are a few of my faves:

(I know the background's totally blown out on the second one, but I can NOT for the life of me figure out Photoshop. So, for now, I'm stuck with what iPhoto and Picnik can fix...).

I'm also working on a visit to my friend who has a brand spankin' new baby and said I could use him as an adorable subject to practice my photography on.

Moving on...

Well, not really, 'cuz I'm still talking about photography...but, in other news, my husband gave me the okay to buy a new camera!!

Catch: "As soon as we pay off his (stupid, God forsaken, dumb, overpriced) trip to Nova Scotia". Have I mentioned how I feel about that trip? Oh, I haven't? Well...I'll just keep those thoughts to myself.

So, now...the question...D90, D300s, or D7000? Sigh. What's a girl to do?


  1. Have you thought about selling your old camera to fund a new one?? And I LOVE this second picture like it is, the background makes him stand out more! Great photos!

  2. great photos they all looks wonderful.

  3. Great job girl! I waaaaant a new one too *said in the best whiney voice ever* I have been drooling over the new Canon 60D ... heavenly! Dont really know anything about Nikon so I cant really give ya any advice..but study,read reviews,and totally love it before you order it!

    PS so sorry I was a terrible bloggy friend and did not link up monday.. life got a little crazy on me. Pinky Promise to not miss again ;)

  4. I can't figure out Photoshop either! That is one crazy program that boggles my mind!
    Spoken from a girl who has Nikon only, I would say go for Canon! A lot of the pros use them and I'm thinking you might be happier with one. But just like Mac or PC, Nikon and Canon are different worlds too.
    Glad to hear that you are feeling better about you. You ARE LIKEABLE!

  5. I love them all! And I am a new-ish owner of a D-90 and I LOVE it. Like, seriously. And I used to be a Canon owner. But the 90 is amazing because there is so stinking much you can do with it - I don't know if I'll ever reach the point where I say, "huh, well, I've done all I can do with this... moving on..."

  6. You cannot go wrong with the D90! I have a D700 and it rocks!

  7. I want a new camera too!! Karl tells me when we have a baby! The pictures are fabulous...#2 with his grin is fabulous!

    I forgot to post yesterday but I do think you are fabulous. It is hard when you have days like that but I try and say an extra prayer and lean on those around me who understand! I am proud of you for realizing it isn't you and they may just not "understand" you!! :)

  8. This nice lady does free e-mail photoshop courses occasionally:

    I'm working on one now and it makes photoshop elements so much easier - and I also came form using iphoto.

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

You! Yes, YOU!! You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now. Tonight. Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it... But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
