Daughters/We Picture This

These are pictures I took over our Easter trip this year. I took the pictures with a Canon Rebel XS, which I'd had less than 24 hours...my first DSLR!! I'm excited to learn from the We Picture This blog!!! This is my newest daughter at 4 weeks old. I cannot believe we drove 7.5 hours with a four week old, but she was great. This is Ellie Jane stretching out after a diaper change. I love her eyes and am excited to see her personality unfold.
My oldest, Mary Paul, riding on Daddy's shoulders. I love her eyes and the lighting on Bryan's face. I also love how comfortable she is sitting so high up. She has total trust that Daddy won't drop her.

My girls. I love Ellie Jane's tongue and how Mary Paul is smiling behind her. She is giving her a kiss.

I Got A New Camera, a Beach Trip, and Daughters Photo Entry!!!

We Picture This Photo/ Daughters This is a picture my husband and two year old daughter, Mary Paul. It was taken over Easter while at the beach. I love the image of fathers and daughters so I chose this picture. I love MP's yes and the lighting on Brian's face. These are some of the first pictures I took with my new camera, a Canon Rebel XS. This is my first non-point and shoot so I am excited about learning how to use it!!!

This picture is of Mary Paul and my (at the time 4 and a half week old) daughter Ellie Jane. I love how you can only see part of MP's face, but it is so full of mischief. I also really like how alert Ellie Jane is and her tongue sticking out the side of her mouth. It's hard to see that cute little mouth, but if you click on the picture it should get bigger.

Our Easter Trip
Bryan surprised me with money to buy a new camera. My old one, just a point and shoot, was getting slow and I had talked about buying a newer camera. I had no idea he would get me my first DSLR (I hope I got that acronym correct, I also mess it up). Anyway, I've posted an absurd amount of pictures from our annual Easter beach trip, including a visit with Nana and Joe. I cannot wait to learn more about my camera and how to use it to its best advantage!!! With such wonderful subjects, I know I'll have fun!!! The first two pictures I'm entering in a blog photo contest. They have wonderful pictures on this blog!!! The blog is called We Picture This. Check it out and enjoy!!!

The whole time, Mary Paul was screaming, "I got Daddy!!!"

Coloring her Easter eggs. Mary Paul had a blast and I was proud to attempt this feat with a newborn.
Mary Paul loves, loves, loves books. She also loves to read to Ellie Jane.
