Nonetheless, I did capture a few photos that I’m happy to share today. But, before we get to my photos….if this is your first time linking up, I only have two rules (and one suggestion):
1) Only share photos you took yourself (or photos taken of you – be sure to give credit to your photographer). 2) Don’t steal any photos shared through this meme. 3) Suggestion: copy and paste my new button to your blog so others know you’re participating.
I should also mention that your “wittle ones” can include your own children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and/or clients…as long as you were the one holding the camera. I fully recognize that “wittle ones” vary in age – so feel free to link up whoever you think of as “wittle.”
With that said, I call this collection “Baby You’re a Firework.” Enjoy. I completely forgot my tripod, so rather than attempt to take good firework shots, I decided to focus on my little girl’s first experience. On the 4th, we watched the fireworks at a local cemetery. Yes…the cemetery. If you can get over the fact that we were at the cemetery, it was perfect. No buildings to obstruct our view…no traffic jam when it was all over…just a beautiful light show. The next night, we went over to my friend, Michelle’s house for another firework show. This experience was quite different. I’ve never been so close to fireworks, so I wasn’t quite prepared for the first blast. Neither was Felicity. She and her daddy went inside for a much quieter show. I stayed outside to attempt to capture a few photos. I am still far removed from mastering the skill of capturing fireworks, but I did learn a few lessons that I’ll apply next year. Most importantly, I’ll be bringing my tripod. I’ll also experiment more in bulb mode.
Either way, I had fun and can’t wait to enjoy it all next year. Have a great week and come back on Friday for a preview of my most recent family portrait session.
