So, I had really wanted to shell out hundreds of dollars to take Silas to an amazing portrait studio for his one year old pictures but I have a real problem spending that much dough on anything. The more I thought about it the more I realized that I had a certain idea in mind when it came to the type of photos that I wanted and my super controlling personality always leads to disappointment when I get my pics back from professional studios. I have also really gotten back into my love of photography and editing of those photos (I started using www.picnik.com and I love it). All of these reasons lead me to convince myself that I would be the one to take his photos along with Daddy as the photo assistant. We not only had a fun family outing to the park in the gorgeous weather but I also got some photos that I am in love with. I have to say that it is also amazing for my confidence level to have done something (that isn't mothering or wifing) that I am really proud of. I don't have professional aspirations surrounding photography but I just really love capturing the world, especially people, in the way that I see them. It is all about the ever-important preservation of memories. Anyway here are some of the shots that I love the most.

|Daddy took this one and I edited the crap out of it...I drool over sepia. I want to have babies with Sepia. Love.|
