i can't take photos.

you probably think i'm kidding with my post title. well, rest assured. i'm not. i am not a trained photographer, or even slightly gifted in that area, so you're going to see quite a few amateur photos/posts. my best friend on the other hand? is pretty much a natural. ah, so frustrating! ;) as you know from this post, i was recently looking into a camera investment.

well. it has been done. 

i feel like a proud mom with my big, seemingly professional camera. it's name is canon rebel t3i and i'm oh so very in love. i bought it on a saturday {on sale!} and snapped dorky pictures of food/jewelry/painted nails for the rest of the night. the best friend and i headed out to a bridge by our apartment on a sunday afternoon {forgive the lighting} and snapped a couple of crystal clear photographs in the fading sunlight. we're a little goofy, but until i take my photography crash course in october? 

this sweet family addition is going to be busy being silly. 


  1. Love the last photo in the shadows! It definitely takes some getting used to and trying to figure out poses and angles and the what not, but I can already see that your doing great...like I said the shadows!

  2. The first picture is just so cute! And I love the last one, it's artistic! :)

  8. Congrats on your new camera! I'm thinking about making a similar investment before my blog dies a death via instagram photos. I think it's all the buttons and dials that is putting me off.
