Black and white theme again!!

we picture {this}

This week I am really going to try to work on getting my camera off of the auto settings. This was my first attempt. I have already learned more today that would have made these pictures even better. I have a LOT to learn, but I'm pretty happy with this for the first time!

She's Doll. Looks like my daughter's pig tails too.
Great shots. I need to do the same with learning more.
Good luck for the contest.

Look at how much hair Presley has now!!!
I think these are great shots! I have been thinking about getting a fancier camera-- I'm still using the easy point and shoot type. I'll have to ask you for some camera advice sometime! :)

Jill said...

my goodness every time i see your photos, i think that i need to get myself a kodak camera as i'm not all that thrilled with my canon (which i researched A LOT before I bought)...maybe it is your subject matter :-) gorgeous kids :-)

Rebecca said...

Kudos to you for getting in manual!! These are great shots of your beautiful girl. Those pigtails are precious. :)

Thank you so much for joining up on our theme this month!

I have not seen your pictures in awhile and was shocked at how much Presley has changed! Her pigtails are adorable & Mavery would be jealous! She just made me take a picture today of her in pigtails, will have to get them posted. Presley is really beautiful!
