Photo Fun

I love photography, plain and simple. When Grace was born I guess you could say, I found my muse. It has been so much fun documenting her first year and I know one day - a long time from now - she'll look back and enjoy seeing all the gazillion photos and the three scrapbooks that make up her first year. Since I love photography so much, I've been looking into upgrading my camera and purchasing an editing software. I've been reading lots of reviews and talking to a lot of knowledgeable people, which led me to Jenn of Take A Bow Creations. She shared some great information with me,including Picasa, a free photo editing program from google. So after tucking in my little pumpkin for the night, I've been playing with some recent photos and I like the results so far. My favorite is the vintage feel of the first two photos. As I was looking through the photos, I realized so many of these show Grace's typical expressions and personality traits that I decided to label the collection, The Many Moods of Grace.

Are you okay, dolly? (aka Caring Grace)

Dance Like Nobody's Watching (aka Free Spirited Grace)

Loving, Protective Grace

Wobbly Toddler Grace (aka Serious Grace)

Mama's Little Pumpkin (aka Sweet Grace)

Little Miss Personality Grace

Hamming it up for the camera! (aka Funny Grace)

He, he, he - I just started playing with the software a few hours ago and already I have a "named collection". Hey, a girl's gotta have dreams!!!
