Photography Lessons for Moms

Right before I had my daughter, I decided to go ahead and upgrade to my very first DSLR level camera. Not knowing how much I might get into photography I decided to start with the lower end entry level camera.. my Nikon D3200. (Note: Photography is an expensive hobby)

Then along came MiniMe, and I had this crazy urge to photograph every waking moment. Time was just flying by.. and I literally felt like she was growing right in front of me. I was panicked to catch it all on camera, but the basic snapshot pictures just weren’t good enough. I wanted to tell a story, catch the moment, feel the emotion, and remember it like I was just there. I soon realized there was a lot to learn beyond turning the camera on and shooting some wonderful pictures. So I came across this website…  ClickinMoms
