I Am In Love with A Rebel

with a Canon Rebel, that is. John completely rocked my world yesterday by bringing me home my first DSLR. It is an early birthday gift. One that caused me to cry a little (ok, a lot) and then smile like a fool. I still am smiling like a fool actually! He is so absolutely wonderful and after I hugged him a zillion times, I ran out the door to take my new baby for a test run. I was shaking with excitement and still managed some of my best shots yet. This camera is amazing...

I got my guys to come outside with me for a few minutes to play in the leaves. While my background isn't the best (street, mailboxes, cars) the shots themselves are my dream come true. Finally a camera that can capture my always energetic Spencer. With such vibrant color and texture. Yay!

I did very little to these photos other than the obvious ones I used Photoshop actions for. I changed my F-stop speed and raised my ISO and clicked. I truly LOVE this Rebel!

I can't even find the words to thank John for helping me realize my dream. Isn't he the best ever?

Ironically, my blogging friend, Melissa (at The Mommyhood Chronicles) mentioned the other day to me that her husband was getting her a new camera and how excited she was. I thought to myself, "Wow, lucky her!". Lucky me too!

Lucky you! That was so very sweet of him. I just got my first DSLR a couple months and I am still trying to figure out all the settings. I would have thought you already had one because your pictures always turn out so GREAT. I love the picture where the leaves are covering SPencer and you can barely see him. Can't wait to see more!

So excited for you and even more so since you finally revealed what kind - I have a Canon Rebel also!

You will love it - I love that you went outside and used it right away! Love your pics and cannot wait until you learn to use every function (because I'm pretty sure that's going to happen for you before I do) haha
I love ya sweets! Enjoy that Canon - it was my best purchase yet (okay maybe besides my laptop).

Yah!!! So excited for you. You are an awesome photographer to begin with!! Lucky you. Great pictures. I'm still waiting on mine. I'm so confused!

I'm totally jealous! I want a canon Rebel. lol. Maybe someday. Our digital sucks and drives me batty. I have to take like 20 pictures to get a decent shot. I guess it could be worse though at least it holds a couple 1000 pictures :) Have fun with your new toy!!!
