Pumpkin Patch 2012

The Hembree twins had their first visit to a pumpkin patch yesterday! It was a far drive to Hammond, La to Miss Heather's Pumpkin Patch by myself, but I got some priceless photos that made the trip well worth it. Even the double poop diaper changes in a Wal-Mart 1.5 hours away from my house. But I digress.

I just wanted to share some of my fave photos from yesterday in my corner of blog land! I'm extremely new to using a DSLR, but I'm proud that I was brave and took ALL of these in manual mode! Practice makes perfect right?

If you're my Facebook friend I have about 40 more photos from yesterday's trip posted there.

If you're like me and have a DSLR but have only used Auto Mode because you have no idea how to really use your camera, and are in the Baton Rouge area, I highly recommend Tara Marie Photography's Beginner's Workshop! I took it back in July and I'm already looking forward to sitting in on her next one this coming February. I have a ton more to learn, but I can't imagine starting anywhere but that workshop, it was perfect for true beginners! Read more here:


Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. I want a new lens for Christmas, wink wink ;)


  1. So I saw these, and the adorable ones on facebook. Your little boys are so sweet! I'm trying to pick a favorite picture, but they're all too good! Keep up the cuteness. :)

  2. I might want to take this class with you! I'm about to get a used DSLR and definitely need to learn about aperture and shutter speed (and all those other fancy terms!). Remind me when I see you again to talk about it!

    I can't think of you have any better subjects to practice on. :)
