Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

Challenge accepted

It is January 1, 2014. I woke up with an exciting - albeit not terribly original - idea: 2014 will be the year of photography for me. More precisely, the year of the photo-a-day challenge!
I am copying this idea from a couple other bloggers who have both done an amazing job in 2013: Danielle from 'Underland to Wonderland' and Allison from 'The Curious Cupcake'. They are both professional photographers, so their photos are really, really good. Go and have a look!

My new Canon Rebel SL1 is a wonder to me. So far I'm mainly clicking and shooting, but the image quality is about a million times better than with my old camera. I'm in photography heaven! Add to that my new baby Lily who I cannotstoptakingpicturesof, and you have a match made in heaven - or hell, depending on your perspective. I am restraining myself from flooding instagram with Corgi pictures, but this blog is fair game!
There is a tab on top called 365 project which is where I will post them. I am super-duper stoked!

Here are a few more pictures from our New Year's photo shoot:
"Auntie Steph, I love my presents!"
Daddy-daughter love.

I hope you all had a spectacular NYE! I had zero alcohol which is a first - no hangover on January 1 is a nice change. Aaahh the benefits of working. 

Here's to a kick-ass 2014!

    1. I can't recommend the Rebel SL1 enough. It is pretty easy to figure out, there are a ton of great settings, and the image quality is amazing. I won't tackle the manual setting just yet, but I have a feeling once that's mastered the possibilities are endless!
      We love our puppy, she's a handful but SO cute!

  3. Oh my goodness ... Lily is adorable! She must make you laugh all day long. I find that having a pet certainly ups the photos taken around here, so assume she will do the same for you in helping you achieve your photography goal for 2014.

    1. She sure does, what a goof!
      So far she's very inspiring, the real challenge will be to photograph other things besides her haha :-)
