Fall Photo Shoot!

I had an idea today. My idea was to drag the girls after school to a little place in the Doris Duke Estate off the public road where there's a stone gazebo with well in the woods. It's such a quaint spot, I thought it perfect for a little photo shoot!!
I am still learning the settings on my new camera so the photos aren't exactly perfect. I hope to tweak the settings and try some more the next time we have a nice, bright sunny day. As you can see in some of the photos, myself and a tree behind me were causing shadows that I didn't really notice while taking the pictures. Another little lesson learned LOL!!

Over all, it was a pretty fun little photo shoot and the girls had a blast. I learned a lot about the camera and angles and such and have a starting point for the next photo shoot. My girls were so patient with me, I am so proud of them and happy that they enjoyed it as much as I did!

Hey fellow Jersey girl! (I'm in Union County) Love how your photos turned out, your girls are beautiful!

Have you heard of scrapper's cove (LSS), you're not too far from it, you should stop by if you haven't been there already. I'm going to start teaching there in January...stop in and check out the classes!

The world is way too small! I used to DT for Scrapper's Cove and had submitted my app for the DT at SMIT for the term that you're on, but because I was already on an LSS DT, I couldn't do it (conflict of interest and all that). I recently submitted for the new call at SMIT but then got the teaching position at scrapper's cove. Too small I tell you!

I haven't been to the one in Old Bridge, but now I will definitely check it out!
