ka-ching!

Clint and I waited in line for over 4 hours for black friday. 
What did we get?
This beaut! 
I imagine this is the kind of love a mother feels for her child. 
Clint and I are both really interested in photography! We've saved up for this since we got married with various "extra money" from housesitting, babysitting, and dogsitting. We could not be happier. 
Including the price off our camera, free stuff, savings from out credit card rewards, and a few other things, we saved over $300! HOLLA!


I'm SO happy! 
Here are a few of the photos I've taken in the last few days. 
A random kid at Clint's family reuinion. I don't even know his name but I think he's so darn cute!

A gorgeous flower I saw at a church building! Can you believe how vivid the colors are? I didn't even edit this at all!

My cutie nephew Maxwell. He was so interested in the camera.

This picture makes me laugh. He was so confused by the flash sound. I LOVE IT!


I obviously didn't take this one, but I love that little boy so much!

Tempe Town lake! After a few tries I figured out how to capture the color. I think it's so cool lookin!

Another shot around Tempe Town Lake. I love the reflections in the water. I especially love the reflection of the plane! :)

So yep, I'm a beginner [be easy on me!]. But I'm really excited! Most of these were shot on manual shutter speed and focus. We're still trying to figure out ideal ISO and aperature settings.
