Blink Photo | Karah!

Many weeks ago we ventured out to a little gravel road on a cloudy, windy day to capture some pics of Karah at the lovely age of 2. If you remember Karah, she does not love Auntie's camera. She is a master avoider :)

Cuddles with puppy and even avoiding you're still pretty stinking cute.




Not even the horsey could crack her.


Auntie Mo is acting like a fool, knocking puppy off her head and I REALLY want to smile but WON'T! lol.


Maybe if I play with my buttons I can regain my composure...


Break for big bro Naters. Easy Peasy. Love his squinty smile :)


Little Karah did not see my secret weapon coming... her friend Hannah and a bubble machine! Boo yah!


Ha ha. Love it.


Yay for Karah smiles!


Giggle. This one is so "her".


Oh Karah. So thankful we get to know you. Love all the sides of you and glad we could capture a bit of them all in these pics :)

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for your kind words. Photography is definitely an ever learning type of hobby/career. For really great portraits with excellent sharpness, clarity and that blurred out background (thus making your subject stand out) you are going to want to invest in a really good lens. A great camera body is a great start but isn't going to do much for your pictures and the lens that came with it isn't really going to help all that much either. You need to look for a "fast" lens meaning that the aperture can stay WIDE open at every focal length. Look for one that is a 1.8 or 2.4 all the way through. These are pricey pricey pricey. As in over $1000 for sure. BUT a good started lens that you can get for most cameras for around $150 is the "nifty fifty". You can purchase a 50mm lens with a 1.8 aperture. This won't zoom (you'll have to do all the moving with your body physically) but will produce great pics. Good luck!
