Just for fun

The girls were sick this weekend so our fun trip to Clemson for the FSU game (GO TIGERS!) was cancelled. Instead, we had a pretty uneventful weekend dealing with runny noses.

I've been working on learning how to shoot in manual with my camera and I'm finally getting some decent pictures. Normally when I take my camera off of the auto setting, all I get is either grainy photos or just a black picture. So I'm excited to finally be learning how to properly use my camera! :) These were several of my favorites from this weekend.

No bibs for this little lady. She is such a messy eater that I have to totally drape her with a kitchen towel. Love those little piggies sticking out!



Anna Cate "swimming like a mermaid." She loves bath time and is convinced wearing this head band in the bath transforms her into a mermaid.


  1. These turned out great! I love how soft they look. You're becoming quite the photographer! Caroline looks like she's about to get a haircut with her "bib" on. :)

  2. She also looks like she NEEDS a haircut! Just look at that crazy hair! :)

  3. Great job with those photos. It looks like you are doing great with taking photos manually!

  4. Hey hey hey, don't cut on that sweet girl's hair... she comes by it honestly! :) Love you both!

  5. hey mary catherine. i don't think i've ever actually met you, but i check out your blog from time to time! your kids are adorable! this is lauren by the way--i work with will at hay hill...

    anyway, just wondering what approach you're using to learning more about the manual modes... i have the same problem where i know a little about them but not enough to fully take advantage of my camera. would love to know your recommendation! thanks : )

  6. Oh my gosh, that mermaid hair is just beautiful. What a sweetie & a beautiful photograph!
