Feeling Like a Rebel

Ok that was corny but I couldn't think of a better title for this post. My birthday present this year was a brand spanking new Canon Rebel. I have been lusting over this camera for what feels like an eternity and I am finally done lusting. No more running to the camera section of any given store and putting on my best puppy-eyes-oh-please-buy-me this-camera face. Thank goodness too because I was starting to feel ineffective in my powers of persuasion when it came to Alex. He was doing a mighty fine job at pretending not to notice my sappy face.
I had always said I wanted a nice camera by the time we had a baby because I wanted to be able to take beautiful shots of our little bundle. Now that we have that bundle, it was time to get the camera. Knowing how important picture taking and memory capturing was to me (I already have 2000 pictures of Cati and she's barely 2 months old), Alex and his family got together and gifted me with a Rebel. I'm still learning how to use the advanced settings but so far the camera has been good to me and I can see that the images are sharper, crisper, and more true to the subject than the images were with my old point and shoot. Here's a shot of my favorite subject:Now that I have a new camera I have a new excuse for going picture crazy :)
