It's been a while

These are two of my favorite parents.  What a great looking pair!  This was taken right in their backyard, with my standard kit lens.  Not my favorite lens.  In fact, it drives me nuts most of the time, but it's the only thing I've got right now, so I make it work. 
I just haven't posted something in a while because the weather has been horrible until recently and I have been horrible about picking up my camera amongst all of the sickness in our home.  I am also a hermit in the winter because I HATE being cold, so I avoid it at all costs.  I really should live in California or something, but alas...all the grandparents are here.  So, here we will stay.
I am anxious for the warmer weather and have already been asked to do some engagement photos (a first for me) for my cousin and some family photos for my Aunt and for my sister.  So, the warmer weather brings more opportunity to pick up the camera and get back into the swing of things.
My anti-flash tip for the day, get outside and stick your subject in some great shade.  It does wonders....even with a stinky, kit lens.

Hey! I know them... they look great. You've inspired me to want to get a better camera and try a photography class.

Annie!!! I'm going to copy this over and put it as our background on desktop for a while. (Did I use those terms right? I'm the queen of making up junk.) This picture looks great. Won't lie, I'm dreaming of having this baby, going on a few runs (wink), and getting to you by the fall for a family picture, too...of course, by then you'll be living large. Hmmm...We'll figure this out!
