Embracing My Camera


Right after Joycie was born, M gifted me with a shiny, new DSLR – it was  a hybrid push present/ Mother’s Day Gift. I was beyond excited as I dreamed of all the gorgeous, professional looking photos I would take.  I vowed to learn all I could about photography so that I could capture all of Joycie’s special moments.

And while I have taken literally thousands of photos in the past 2 year, my knowledge of photography and my camera has not advance beyond the basics.  I figured that I was just too busy – and we have an amazing photographer that we use for professional shots – so I did not pursue the issue.

But then my friend, Kevin started this this amazing blog that showcases a daily photo of his life.  His beautiful work inspired me to dust off my camera, revive my interest, and starting shooting again.

For now, my goal is to simply take a photo every day. I need to get comfortable with my camera.  I am also going to head to the library to find a book on digital photography – in the hopes that I can learn how my camera actually works beyond the auto setting.

I’ll wrap up this post with my first photo of 2012.
