Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD - Week 4: Words

Sometimes one little word can render you speechless.



(But in a good way!)

Technical info (camera details, that is): Canon 100mm macro, f/5.0, 1/100, ISO 400.
Technical info (baby details): I'm 7 weeks along, feeling so much more ill & cruddy with this one than with the other 3, EDD 9-7-08, still very early to officially announce it, but it fit so well with this weeks theme that I couldn't resist!
