Taking pictures

I got a new camera for Christmas.

I had wanted a digital SLR camera ever since we first brought Clara home. But, in the meantime, we were blessed to have a very good friend who had one and he quickly became Clara's "official photographer." His five-month photos of her our legendary in our family.

The first time we realized her knack for "smizing"

I couldn't be more thrilled that I have one of my own now. It's the best present I think I've ever gotten (thanks, Mom and Dad!). I use it almost every day and in any free time I get when Ryan's on baby duty, I plop myself down at our desktop and upload and edit pictures. I love it.

And that means that I've taken quite a few. 1500 to be exact. And that's only since Dec. 25! I don't even want to do that math for what that might be over the course of a year.

But how can I resist capturing every single moment? (Well, I don't capture every moment)

I waited a very long time to take these pictures and I'm going to take them. My poor kids.

So because they have to go somewhere, I'm going to start posting more photos here. After all, what illustrates our life with Clara and Luke better than pictures?

Well, maybe videos, which I need to start posting more of too.

You have two very gorgeous babies on your hands. And Clara seems so gentle with Luke. BTW where'd you get that quilt?

What kind of camera did you get?

It's a Nikon D3000 (the newer version is the D3100 and can take video.. mine can't). It's great because you can just turn it on and take great pictures. Or, you can read and learn how to use it to its full capacity and take even better pictures. I needed a quick learning curve!

Thanks for the info! I've been looking at Nikons and Canons and trying to decide which one to get. Your pictures are fabulous, so I was curious what you had.
