early christmas present

Filed under: carmen, moseley — Jana @ 4:13 pm

Lee surprised me with an early christmas present this year… a new camera!  I have been wanting a decent camera for a while now, but I was always too intimidated to pull the trigger.  Finally I just got so frustrated with my little dumb sloooooooow camera that I *drop kicked it and decided I wanted a nikon for christmas this year.

I have been fiddling around with it.  I am loving it.  I have basically no clue what all these knobs and buttons mean… but I plan to learn it all eventually.  Luckily I am surrounded by fantastic photographers who I can get tips from.

Here are a few test shots from bath time.  Go easy on me.  It’s my first time.

It is hard to mess up a photo when these kids are this cute though, I have to say.

*I didn’t actually drop kick it.  I really just plan to just let Carmen use it, since she is the photog in the family.



  1. Lucky! Love that little Moseley boy’s eyes. (which is also a compliment to your Carmen girl since they both have those soul melting big eyes)

  3. Sa-weet!! I’m so excited for you! I won’t even mention the pang of jealous for all the rad tips coming your way. :) I love your creativity though, and I’m excited to see how that translates to your photography.

  6. What kind did you get? We want a good one so bad. We just have one of those cheapy pocket type cameras. Everytime I see Kat’s blogs (her sister is on a mission and left her a sweet camera) I get so jealous! I love nice pictures and I want to take some!

  7. Hey can you do me a solid? Just real quick? Um yeah, can you be bad at something? Thanks. Anything, just one thing. You can choose what it is and everything. I’ll let you. But I just need this from you so that I don’t continue to feel like a lame-o for the rest of my life. K. Cool.

    • What ev. Kat. What ev. Like I’m not trying to keep up with you.

      There are plenty of things I’m not so great at… I just choose not to blog about them all that much. :)

      like sports, any sports… Umm no. I’ve never even stood up on a surf board.

    • Oh and ps… I’m not good at photography. I’m a total poser.
