Working overtime is worth it
...when you get to reward yourself with fancy grown-up toys afterward!
Please excuse our really messy bedroom - we're getting ready to leave for a long weekend in Columbus...plus our room is never really "clean" except for the hour after I clean it each weekend.
But I digress.
We finally bought a camera! Yes, we were camera-less before this. (My birthday present from 2000 finally quit on me last year, poor baby.)
I was/have been convinced for a long time that we needed a camera before Baby Gokie got here. I love looking at pictures of myself when I was a baby, and I didn't want to short our child of that opportunity. D and I both have iPhones but the pictures are just not the same, you know? So I was insistent that we get a camera before he/she arrived.
David wasn't as convinced, and since he's the money man in our relationship, we made a compromise - if I worked overtime enough to pay for one, we could get a camera. Et voila! Camera. (Somehow the fact that he buys a new tool every time we go to Menards wasn't a factor in our discussion, although I'm convinced it should have been. Boys...)
|I pretended that my old bear Jickey was a baby for awhile and "posed" him for practice.|
I'm pregnant, don't judge me too harshly.
Now I've been reading and researching ferociously online about how to shoot with something that doesn't also make phone calls, and I even started a new Pinterest board on newborn/baby photo shoot ideas.
I'm a woman obsessed.

If you've got any good recommendations on tutorials or video series, shoot (teehee) them my way! I'm always open to suggestions. I'm obviously a newbie when it comes to cameras and such so I'd love any advice you've got.
