Gone Fishin

Matt has been wanting to go fishing for the past few weekends, but we have not been able to get away. So Saturday morning we decided to head to the land for some time in the sun! Matt invited a guy from his class and his family. They were able to go with us and we all had a great time! I was excited to meet someone that Matt is going through training with since I hear about them so much! What a great family! They were a lot of fun to be around! I love meeting new people that you just click with immediately! I hope we are able to do more with the Walker family!!

Photo Shoot with the Hildreth Kids

I went to Sims Lake Park in Suwanee with my sister and her 4 kids yesterday to take some shots of them. They turned out really good. I LOVE black and white pictures! I think black and white photographs are so classic. I do have to say that it is virtually impossible to get 4 kids to look at the camera and smile all at the same time. I've think I've learned how to play a slideshow within a blog post, so I didn't have to upload all 100+ pictures that I took of them! Still looking for volunteers for more "practice" photo shoots!

What a beautiful day Easter was. After church, we headed up to my grandparents house in Toccoa for an afternoon of family, food, and fun. I tried my best to only post the best ones, but I have such a hard time narrowing them down! I guess I should look into one of the slideshow programs to start posting my pictures with! That way I don't have to upload each individual one and I wouldn't have to pick which ones to put on the blog!

On a side note, I have decided that I could have a blog for nothing but picutures. I rarely have much to say, I just want to share my photos!

If you think it is hard to get kids to cooperate to take pictures, try taking pictures with Matt! We had over 20 picture taken, and only 2 of them turned out decent!

As you all know from my blog, I LOVE taking pictures. Too bad the only thing that we have around our house to take pictures of is our dogs!! Since I got my new camera at Christmas, I have been working on my "photography" skills. I really want to start taking photos of kids and families, so I needed some people to practice on. I went to my friend (and co-worker) Carrie's house yesterday morning to play around with her kids. I had a great time and,in my opinion, ended up with some pretty good shots! I told Carrie that I wanted to practice on her kids because no matter how bad the photographer was, the photos would turn out great because her kids are so stinking cute! If you are looking for an amature to take some "non-professional" shots of your kids or family, let me know! I am looking for some more people to practice on!!!
