We got Pigbeared!

About two years ago when Blaise was six months old Jan convinced me (after some time) that we needed a DSLR camera. It turns out Jan wasn't just blowing smoke. I have to say, I am really glad I finally listened to him!

Once we got our new DSLR I went about trying to learn how to use it. I'm not where I hoped to be two years later, but that isn't the point of this post. I found a few websites that I inhaled, one of which I am still a faithful reader of: The Pigbear. My new found internet photography guru is a Kindergarden teacher turned stay-at-home turned (amazing) professional photographer. Browse her photography blog for examples of her work.

When I heard she was going to be in Louisville the same weekend we were heading to Brown County (a mere two hours away) I knew I had to get my kids in front of her camera! I live in Germany and she is based out of Huntsville, AL - I might never get this close to her again!

Jan made fun of me as we pulled up because I was noticeably nervous. I hoped that after all our efforts my two year old would cooperate.  I shouldn't have worried - that is why Erin is so great, she literally had him at hello. They were fast friends!

Here are some of the beautiful pictures that we got from Erin that day, I can't wait for them to be hanging on my wall!

See what I mean? Thanks so much, Erin! It was great meeting you and getting "Pigbeared"! :)
