New Canon Rebel!

Hey guys! So some of you know that I have been dying to get my hands on the Canon Rebel T3 DSLR. I have a Nikon Coolpix but lately it just seemed to really lag and whenever I would try to get a picture of my kids doing something hilarious or quick, by the time my camera took the pic it was 10 seconds too late :(. We came to the agreement that I would save up for it and I was hoping and praying I'd have it in time for Christmas pics. Well, yesterday my sweetie came home from getting the tires on his truck changed and rotated (I've been battling a cold for the last few days so he went alone) and he brought me MY CAMERA!! Woohoo!! <3 I'm so blessed to be married to him. He always does his best to make me happy :)

So I have been reading up on it and frankly, I'm a little intimidated. I have quite a few friends who are really into photography and lets be honest, I don't really need another hobby. But This is an investment that we feel is worth every single penny because the pictures are amazing! Our son Bradley is low functioning autistic and he NEVER looks at the camera. Yesterday I took him outside to play and capture some shots and I got the most amazing picture I've ever gotten of him. So any doubt I might have had was erased just by this single picture.

*BTW- isn't he a little cutie pie? I'm a little biased but this is my little angel. Jacob and Julianne do their own thing most of the time but this little one likes to just come up to us and cuddle. :))**

I just wanted to share my excitement with you guys and hopefully now with my new camera, I'll be way more inspired to get back to my scrapbooking :) I have about 2 mini albums i'm working on that I will post sometime this weekend. I am battling a cold AND have finals on Sunday and since my hubby is working all weekend, it's just me and the kids. :)

Happy Fall!!


  1. Congrats on your new toy! I have an old Canon Rebel XT, and I love it (unfortunately, it is being repaired at the moment, so I MISS it). I remember being terribly intimidated when I first brought it home, but eventually I figured most of it out. The best thing about these cameras is that they really do work beautifully on "Auto". :) In fact, I have a few photographer friends who use the Auto function for pretty much everything except those specialty shots. Feel better soon and enjoy your fabulous new camera!


    P.S. You husband sounds like a sweetheart and yes, your little guy IS a cutie pie. :)

  2. Hey girl! Your son is just adorable! I was like you, when I got my first SLR I didn't know what to do with it. I ended up taking a photography class through the local community college (very inexpensively). It was a 9 week class, one day a week, but it was well worth it because It was a huge help! Have fun with it! I wish my DH was so sweet to bring me surprises like that LOL!!
