Little Wooden Rocker

When I was a little girl my parents got me this brown rocking chair. They kept it around all these years, and I had my mom bring it over last week when she came to visit.  Leah looked so cute after church today I took her out for a few shots in the little rocker. I often run on this road near my house and it's kind of a neat spot, so we headed out while the light lasted.  She was a fairly cooperative model although I probably had more blurry shots of her running away than anything.  She also has a bit of a drooling problem right now!  I'm so glad to have this little piece of my childhood to give to if it can just survive her brothers.  I truly am blessed to have a daughter.  Hearing this little girl call me "mama" makes my day, everyday!

As for the photos, I'm improving each time I shoot, but I have a long way to go.  I still struggle with things like focus.  I realize many of my images are not "tack sharp." I just switched my Nikon D90 to back button focusing to give that a try.  I think I'm to the point where I can usually identify what would make my pictures better, but I just don't necessarily have all the skills yet with either shooting or editing to get there.  It's a work in progress!

I am such a novice but check out this link to see some truly amazing photos...

  1. What a special rocker! So cool that you can now share it with your little one :)

  2. She is too cute when she giggles! They are beautiful always have to shoot about a hundred to get 1 or 2 special ones! You have a lovely little model to work with. P.S. My daughter has a similar left arm as your daughters--but they don't seem to realize it, do they?!
