My first photoshoot

Like every other Mormon mother out there, I decided I need to become a photographer.

Not actually... but I do have an Olympus DSLR to play around with for the summer so I thought I'd take it out for a picnic a few afternoons ago.

The camera is nice, but a little broken, so direct sunlight is a must or else the photos come out super dark. I know all about aperture and ISO and shutter speed now, but I don't know how to change them on my camera so these were all taken on the auto setting.

My subject=cutest baby ever.

My skills=need some improvement.

My fellow mothers, dressed in full abayas.


  1. he is super cute, and wow, I bet those women are hot.

  2. He's a keeper. I love the sneaky way you got those women in the picture;)

  3. Not so sneaky. That mom is giving you a sideways glance. How do they not burn up in those abayas?!

  4. She totally is! Oops. People on the street grab my baby from me and pull out their cell phones to take a picture, so I don't feel so awkward about this.

  5. love those pretty eyelashes!!

  6. that second picture is so adorable! i love how you can see his eyelashes so well. cute!
