Mowgli

When Bryce was little, he watched The Jungle Book all the time. Richard and I can still recite most of the movie :) This might be why we have called Wesleigh "Mowgli" ever since her hair grew out into that amazing muellet. Lately, she is refusing to keep her pj's on at night. Everytime I go get her from her bed, this is what I see...Mowgli! :)

I love it!!

I just finished Lisa's photography class. It was filled with lots of great information and I learned a ton. If I'm honest, though...I'm a little overwhelmed, and think my camera is still smarter than I am! I think it's just going to take more practice than I thought. I have some cute models, but they were all done being cooperative by week 2! I might have to resort to paying my models for their time (and smiles)...you would think living indoors would be payment enough!! :)

Here are a couple of shots I got from my cranky models this week:

Ha, Ha! Love your Mowgli!

Had to laugh about the cooperation of your models! I get about the same reaction from all THREE! But hey, we will have "new blood" coming soon :-) Maybe Gracie & Ruby wont know better for a while!

Until then, pay up, mama!

All the photo stuff will literally "Click" into place one day. Coordinating the ISO, APerture, metering and Shutter speed will become automatic the more you do it. I had it down so well a year or two ago and then when I let up on the photography, I got rusty and now it takes me a little more time but it is coming back..


I think your photos lately have looked AWESOME!!!


Will LOVED the Jungle book too and we used to call him mowgli or our little man cub:) I think we have it meomrized too:)

That Mowgli comment was hysterical!! I also had to laugh at your "willing" models! I have to laugh because my 2yr old grandson can be smiling his head off, until I grab the camera and he starts scowling!He's only 2!!! Bree on the other hand has been a willing model. She is a camera HOG and will just about smile and pose the moment I grab the camera. There are times she doesnt want to, so you know what I thought of he beloved schnauzer! The poor dog can't talk and can't complain and that makes her PERFECR! I grab "doggy treats", chalk, cute jazzy outfit,hats and props and out the door we went! I gotta say I captured some cute moments on camera! I gotta upload them to FB later in the week! I'm pretty intimidated by my camera, but YOU my dear are doing an awesome job! Wanna borrow my dog to practice on? :)
