My picture taking skyrocketed to the next level when my son was born. Hundreds, turned into thousands of photos! The organizing just takes longer.
I soon realized those professional photos were going to cost me (and my hubby) way to much money. For my first mother's day (2009) I received a very nice, but some what expensive Canon Rebel. I'm in love. I snap away. I'm still learning how to use all the settings and if my Pinterest Photography board is any indication, I still have a long way to go. I might want to actually READ some of those items!
I am slowly building an amateur portfolio. Mostly photographs of our son, but I have taken wedding photos, senior pictures and other children pictures.
When our son turned one I took the "cake smashing" photos myself. When I went to pick them up they assumed they were professional and almost wouldn't let me have them! I had to sign a professional photo release that I was the photographer and owner of the photos!
