Photo Challenge

A few months ago I bought a Rebel 2Ti and a 50mm lens. I mainly bought them so I could have nice snapshots of the fam, but I was having a heck of a time really learning how to use the camera with a model who doesn't sit still. Soooooo I decided to try a photo challenge to encourage me to use my camera every day and to take pictures of things other than Rosie - no offense Rosie.

I found this challenge on Pinterest, but I can't find it on the owners SITE
Anyway, so I ended up only taking like 3 of the pictures on the actual day and Rosie still ended up being in half of the shots, BUT I do feel like I learned a lot during this last month and I had a lot of fun doing it.

I was happy with a lot of the shots until I took a quick glance at my mom and sister's photography websites and realized I still have a LOT to learn. They both do photography professionally and they both ROCK at it. You can find my mom's site HERE and my sister's site HERE

I so love them all. You have gotten so good so fast! I love the way you frame scenes your own way. So beautiful! I can't wait to see more and more and more of your photography here on your blog :). And as much as I adore adorable pictures of adorable Rosie, its so fun to see other parts of your life!
