Our first photo shoot...

For a while now I have been wanting a new camera that will be able to take good quality pictures. So- for my birthday (and I think it counts for Christmas, too!!) I got it! It came a couple of days ago, but because we've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to really take any pictures. But today, Parker is 10 months old, so after breakfast, I put her in a little sun dress, and off we went to the park. I was a little nervous because I hadn't ever been to this park, but was comforted to see when I pulled in that there were quite a few people there. So I put her in the stroller, and off we went to find the 'perfect' pictures spot. I don't think we found it, but I did get some ideas for in the future...especially when she can walk on her own. It was a bit difficult getting her to stand, sit, and look where I wanted, and to smile! (I also wasn't prepared, in that, I did not remember to bring a squeaky toy or hand puppet to make her laugh...my faces and noises just don't cut it!). I do think she enjoyed the trip though...there was so much to look at! It would have also been easier to have Geoff there so one person could position her, then one take the shots. And then on another note...I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing!! I need to read up on everything that this camera can do...plus- I have no idea about lighting and all of that fun stuff!! Looks like I have some homework to do...
