Just a note to let you know that Aubrie took her first steps this morning. Just shy of 10 months, she is following closely in her sisters footsteps (aaaahahahahha) by walking early. Of course, later today she would note repeat the steps, but I bet she will be walking on her own on a consistent basis within the next two weeks. Go baby go!
And, in celebration of this milestone, here is a before/after of a picture I snapped of Brie. I feel like I am at that point in my photography that I second guess everything I do and I don't like anything that I come up with. Then I look at the picture and have to convince myself why I like it the way it is. Oh well. I like this one because I love how the processing warmed the picture a bit, her face is a bit more consistent with the highlights, and her eyes are a gorgeous shade of blue. Maybe I just have my mommy glasses on!

And that's it. We're planning on spending the weekend with family, and I can't wait :) I hope you all have an awesome 4th.
Before I go... I'm desperatly trying to learn how to use my flash. Anyone have any good tutorials that they know of that really dumb it down? I found this site which has helped a little, but I feel *so* lost. I these images with such beautiful light and I wonder why I can't get that same effect. Oh well. More practice I suppose!
Enjoy your weekend!
