The Lord bless and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you. The Lord be gracious unto you, and give you peace.

Maria's 2 Year Old Photoshoot

Right when she sat down, the sun came out and one of the balloons popped, so I ended up moving and taking out the balloons. The settings I used made the long shots of her blurry so the pictures below is what I ended up with.

Visit From The Cousins

Some of our relatives came up to visit from Oregon. They like playing in the pool even when it's cold like today. I got my new 85mm prime lens in the mail today and used it to take these pictures. It's suppost to be a really good lens for portrait photography. It keeps the person in focus and sharp while blurring out the backround... It's a really nice lens.
