Oh Happy Day.

Noise.  Blech.  In my opinion, the world would be a better place without it.  Of course, as a photographer, I’m referring to the noise that often plagues low light photography…. but I suppose, as a mother, this noise slogan could take on a whole new meaning ;o)    You may remember my mentioning a thing or two about noisy photos in previous posts ….(primarily concerning birthday parties)….and you may also recall my mentioning of a coveted lens that is skilled in the art of low light photography.  (And covet I did.  Stare.  Oogle, even.)  Time passed….and  then we booked a wedding.  Wait — make that two weddings, with hopefully more to follow.  Exciting and promising … and totally deserving of such a low light lens.  So … here it is …. Happy Awesome New Lens Day!

I wasn’t the only one excited about the new lens — even my children caught the fever and started trying all sorts of crazy antics for me to photograph.  Remember what I said about living with goofy clowns?  I wasn’t fibbing.

Here we are in the dreaded dining room …. look, no lighting issues here ….. just a couple of break dancers?

Ok crew -- NOW we can go swimming!

Dexter, waiting so patiently for his kid buddies to come and play.

Fresh basil ..... definitely in the Top 10 Best Aromas In The World.

After surviving mowing with the mosquitoes in the backyard, Jacob was ready for a swim.

Fast forward through swimming (which was fun — although it feels like I spent half of my pool time cleaning out the random leaves and debris that the wind had blown in.   It’s incredible how much of a day with kids revolves around cleaning something.)  This particular evening I had a mini grilling assistant, which is always appreciated…….

….he decided that burgers were on the night’s menu.

You can never have enough mustard.

So, on behalf of my family, my business, and underexposed photos everywhere, I would like to echo Jade’s words to my favorite Boys In Brown (yes, I’m talking about the UPS Delivery Guy)  — “Thank you for the new lens!!”
