SHOTS

So I have this really nice camera, "Canon, Rebel" that I've had for years and never use anymore because it's not digital ...I decided to use it only for black and white photos/close-ups and use it more often, plus I didn't know you could take your roll of film and put it onto a CD to edit and choose which to print and enlarge(news to me!)...these pictures are taken without my extended lense...next time I will use that...I don't know much about photography so if anyone would like to enlighten me on my camera or give me pointers that'd be great!




These were of my niece Willa, who is very photogenic, the next two, her brother Brooks (Jared's kids) were alot harder to capture...he does not sit still for a SECOND....... these were the best two I had...


Oh, I guess I could add in the "drunkard" (is that a word?) The "wrastleling" match (as my dad would call it) , Willa won
Ruby and Brooks on their "JUMP-O-LEEN" ie=Grandma's Couch, this takes up hours of their time....


My precious......Liam


Small One....Ruby
P.S. I LOVE YOU

You should be a photograper. These are great pictures. You do have adorable children. We shouldn't be seperated so much after all, they are my grandchildren. I wonder if I could buy a lottery ticket and be forgiven if I win. Then I could travel all over and see all my grandchildren. I miss you guys.
Love grandma diane

mindy...i love the pictures. wow ruby is gorgeous, i love her eyes. okay so we have the same couch...but i think we talked about that before. the girls night out is a much needed thing for us mommies. we should have a law school night out. pumping is sooo fun...double duty...but worth it to get out & a great excuse for shot gun!

hey mindy...i like the black and white look. those are some fun pics- somehow facial features seem to stand out more with black & white photos
your little pictures on the side are cute but the big family picture on top only showed your elbows or chins or something....I'm not sure if it is just my computer or if it is supposed to like that...if so, sorry for being so observant? it was great to catch up with your blog
