True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

Random {Sunday Snapshot}

Nikon D90, 50mm prime
ISO 800,  f1.4,  SS 1/125
This one would have been my fav shot of the day, hands down,
except for my wonky focus.
Darn it! He moves too fast for my AF!!

I haven't had my camera out in a number of days. I just haven't been in the mood. These were taken right at bedtime last night (while the kiddos were resisting my pleas to get their pj's on). 

I love that my fav lens (50 mm prime) can open all the way up to f1.4... but for the life of me, I can not seem to get my focus to work with me!! Grrr!! I guess I need more practice!

As for daily life around here... well, Matt is working on adding a 3rd-car garage to the house. He was out all day yesterday with a friend digging trenches so he can move the electric & gas lines. 

So that left me with the kiddos all day. We went to the store & swam a couple times. Nothing fancy, but enough to keep us occupied. 

My summer semester will be finishing up in the next couple weeks (yea!!). I just got notice that I made the dean's list for winter semester (yea!!). 

That's about it for us right now. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

  1. What a beautiful girl! THe first photo is so cute...and I also LOVE her eyes on the back and white. Gorg!!

  2. These are absolutely precious! Oh my heart is melting.

  3. Beautiful photos! Their eyes are so sparkly. :)

  4. Congrats on Dean's List!!! Great pix, too:)

  5. Your kiddos are so cute!
    I have the same issue with my 50mm 1.4. If I'm close and shooting anything below a f2.8, I really have a hard time nailing the focus. If they would just hold still for a moment! ;)
    Happy Sunday!

  6. I love those shots! I can tell you are a perfectionist like me, haha! Do you have the focus on AI Servo or AI Focus or One shot? If you can do AI Servo that is the best...but I personally like AI Focus because it helps with those fast little kiddos! The lower fstop too should help with capturing them...you can adjust your SS to be higher and just kick up your ISO too, which helps....but I seriously loved these. Only you would notice;) Great Blog...visiting from Simple As That;)

  7. You did a beautiful job on these photos!!! Such GORGEOUS eyes:))))))
