Oh Happy Day!

So there is a new addition in the Wagoner household.  No it’s not a kid or a dog–we have plenty of those already!  My new camera finally arrived today!  I am so in love–it’s even better than Guitar Hero!!  Here’s how our afternoon went.  I put the little kiddos down for a nap at 1pm.  Shortly thereafter Mr. UPS man arrived with my brand new “baby.”  I tore into that box like it was Christmas morning and found the battery and charger.  I knew that if I started charging it now it would be ready by the time one of the kids woke from their nap.  Stella is always up before Claire (our little sleepy bug) so she was my first victim subject.  Now she usually gets to watch a Baby Einstein video after her nap so I had to entice her over to the door somehow where there was better light for photographing.  I decided to use her very favorite thing right now–the Itsy Bitsy Spider.  So here is Stella doing the Itsy Bitsy Spider.


Are you catching all these motions here…up the water spout, down came the rain…


It only took a couple of times of the song for her to figure out I was taking her picture and then she ditched me for Baby Einstein.  I was forced to watch Winston wait at the door for Grace to get off the bus.


Grace finally gets off the bus and comes running into the house all happy and giddy.  She LOVES to ride the bus (me, I’m not as thrilled about it :) )  She only lets me snap a couple before she is off to do her homework.  In the meantime Claire wakes from her nap.  Now if you know Claire, you know that you don’t bother her for a few minutes when she wakes up.  She had one thing on her mind and it wasn’t photos–as shown below it was Chocolate Chip muffins. All three of the kids just love those little muffins.


So there, a typical afternoon at our house.   For those of you photographers out there, it was basically dark outside this afternoon with all the rain and clouds.  These photos were taken at ISO4000–yep, that’s three zeros after the 4, sweet!

I can’t wait to have a few sessions with the new camera.  I have four sessions between now and Sunday so I should get my fill!

Hope you are all having a great week!

I can't imagine that your photos could be more beautiful than they already are....I think you could shoot on a disposable camera and they would be beautiful. We LOVED our pictures...you captured them perfectly! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you (and your new addition) this year!
