I'm very interested in...


I've always enjoyed taking pictures.  Even when I was little I loved taking pictures with my camera, you know, the kind that takes the 110 film cartridge and that fit easily in my My Little Pony purse!  I went through so many of those little cameras!

I'd like to think that my photo skills have improved a little over the years, but WOW do I still have a lot to learn. After being somewhat disappointed in the newborn pictures that we recently had taken, I decided I would take some of my own with my little point and shoot camera.  I was more satisfied with my pictures than with the "professional" ones, though my still needs improvement.

I came across a photography series on brown paper packages, one of my favorite blogs, and it's been very informative and fun to read:)  Here's a link to the first post in the series.

Here's 2 pictures from my photo session attempt.  I love his little scrunchie head in the first one:)  I just grabbed a white sheet and threw it on my bed, then covered his boppy with a white blanket and that was oh-so-impressive back drop.

On my wish list is this camera, a Canon Rebel XTi and a few classes to go along with it!  I'm still researching, but I've heard great things about this one.
Anybody have any thoughts on this camera?  Would you suggest another one?  I'd love to hear from you:)
