Raw(e) Girly

This week's theme for Raw(e) is Girly! 

When I think girly I picture little girls in pigtails with bows in their hair.  I immediately thought back to Thanksgiving dinner last year with my Family.  My little cousin, 18 months old at the time, was all dressed up in a plaid dress and pigtails with matching bows!  I had to flip back through my iPhoto and find the pictures I took of her.  They're a little blurry but hey this is Raw(e) here, SOOC shots only!  Besides taking a picture of a toddler hyped up on sugar is hard work!

Rock Climbing

Anyone ever been rock climbing?

My boyfriend works at an indoor rock gym and that's where I hung out last night!  The place where he works has caves inside the wall you can crawl around in.  They're painted black so it's almost completely dark in there all the time.  The climbing area consists of two rooms and holds on the ceilings.  It's pretty neat when you see people come in that can scale the ceiling.  

This is one of our friends just messing around.  That cargo net you can get into when you're in the caves but he decided he was going to climb on the outside of it just for fun.  The picture on the right is another one of my friends who is an awesome climber.  He can climb just about anything there.

This last one is my friend Meaghan and I in the same spot that first picture is in.  That's where the zipline is for the caves.  You can go straight across the room on the zipline.  I haven't actually done it but I like hanging out up there, it's really cool.

Oh How Much I....

love my new Canon Rebel T2i.  And trust me they don't have to pay me to say that (though they can if they want to hint hint Canon).  I've had this camera for a whopping 3 weeks now and to say I'm in love might be an understatement.  I take pictures everywhere, every chance I get.

I take pictures when I....

 go outside 

when I babysit 

when I walk the dog 

heck I've even taken pictures on the couch!

This camera is incredibly easy to use, in fact my boyfriend's father (who is totally not tech savvy) was playing with it earlier today and got a few great shots!  It has a ton of features and options and is easy to learn on when you're getting into photography.  I especially love how the screen changes when you change the ISO and Aperture in Live View Mode.

I'm taking a digital photo class in school this Semester so it's even easier to learn all the functions and specifics of the camera.  It doesn't hurt that I can go outside and take pictures all day while saying I'm doing my homework!

This week's theme for Raw(e) is Smiles and Laughter and the first thing that came to mind was a picture I took of the girls I watch the other day.  They were laying on the floor together and absolutely love getting their picture taken.  Of course if they try and pose for shots they come out looking kind of ridiculous but hey that's a 3 and 4 year old for ya. 

This one I caught in between poses of them just having fun with each other.
