I received a few questions regarding our equipment as well as what I use to print my scrapbooking photos so I'll answer those!
1. amber, i have a question for you...where do you print your photos for scrapbooking? do you use your professional lab? or a cheaper place like snapfish?
I actually just use my printer here at the house. It's a Canon iP1700. Several years old. but I don't scrap enough right now to place an order & I always have new photos I want to do. I do things on a whim, whenever I have the time so this is the best thing for me. I have been ordering 50 free 4x6 from places like seehere.com & kodak
2. .what's your fav lens to keep on your camera for those great captures in the park?
For this lil venture it was our 50mm 1.4. Remember to stay in the shade if you can. Harsh sunlight across the face & shadows in the eye sockets come from direct sunlight. Put the subjects back toward the sun to help!
We shoot w/a Canon 5 D Mark II. The 50mm stays on our camera most of the time, However we do LOVE our 85mm 1.8 as well. :)
Speaking of camera questions, I'd love to open up a Q& A if anyone has anything!
So ask away!
For now, here is our Sweet Easter Girl...
Thanks for all the suggestions on the hair pulling thing.
I have heard of that "trichotillomania in infants" but I don't think that is it b/c she only wants to do while nursing at night. It's more of a comfort thing I think... I used to suck my thumb so I wonder if that is her thing.
Anyway... I have remedied the problem for now by sewing Velcro into her sleep tops so that I can close her sleeves but then open them for morning time but then close them again for her nap so we don't have to do any changing. Hoping that a few more weeks of this & she'll have broken the habit. If not, we will just go a lil longer... or try that doll w/hair she can pull on.
Off to do some studying for an E-session we have this afternoon!
