I love this picture of her...

Not much more to say than that, but I almost get teary every time I look at it.

I ♥ Faces - Fix-It Friday

It's 'Fix-It Friday' at I ♥ Faces and since I'm definitely in the editing learning stage, I take advantage of the opportunity for constructive criticism. Please, let me know what you think.




Please head over to I ♥ Faces and see what others have come up with.

I'm in love and I've only know him for 8 hours...

My new Nikon D300 is the new love of my life. I have a LOT to learn but boy is this going to be fun! Take a look at some of the pictures I took with it tonight. :)

So, my husband comes home from work last night and announces to me that he's bought me my anniversary present. He's horrible at keeping surprises and even though our 7 year anniversary is almost 3 weeks away, there's no way he'd be able to keep it a surprise for that long.

I'm SO excited because he's bought me a super duper camera. I've been toying with the idea of becoming an amateur photographer and possibly even getting a photography-related degree for quite some time now. Taking pictures has become something of an obsession of mine. I'm beyond excited about the one he's got for me! I can't wait to get my hands on it and learn, learn, learn! I've been taking pictures with my Sony Cybershot for several years now but there's only so much I can do with it, and it's incapable of doing some of the more creative type shots I see from DSLR's. So, that's my big news and I couldn't be any more thrilled!!

I ♥ Faces - No Flash (Adult)

Here is my adult entry for the no-flash contest over at I ♥ Faces .
This handsome guy is my husband. You can see that my little girl had some fun putting some 'lipstick' on her daddy. It was actually chalk. He was a great sport!
Take a look at the other wonderful entries over at I ♥ Faces .

I ♥ Faces - No Flash

I've been practicing on my point and shoot without flash for a while. I was lucky enough to see an opportunity when this little guy was playing outside on a rocking chair. His name is Elijah and he's the grandson of my friendly neighbor. I live in Hawaii so there's a lot of natural light - most of the time. I did some cropping on this one because I LOVE the reflection you can see in his eyes.

Head over to I ♥ Faces to see more of the beautiful entries posted this week. Thanks for looking!
