Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to eveyone out there in blog land!

My family really didn't know what to get me this year, so I asked for a photography class. Boy, did I get a GREAT one.

My good friend, Barbarann, arranged to have the class at her home. We went down to a nearby farm to do our practice shots - what a beautiful place to apply what we learned!!!

The owners of the farm collect antiques - such amazing stuff:

Lisa taught the class - you can read and see more about her and her photography on her blog at

She arranged for us to have two amazing models, one, a friend of Lisa:

and the second, Barbarann's daughter:

Oh, and I amost forgot our third model, Josie:

Lisa really showed us how to get that good shot:

This class was the perfect reason for me to get my new camera out of the box and use it. I have been so busy since Christmas, that I hardly even used my new Canon Rebel.

Lisa made the class fun - we had "class time" then practiced what we learned at the farm, then had more class time, then had another outdoor session. And . . . Lisa gave each one of us a binder filled with information to take home.

The whole experience was amazing!!!!!

And the best part was that I got to spend time with good friends, and meet some new ones in the process. And enjoy a most beautiful Spring day.

Here is the owner of the farm (our fourth model!) with his beautiful dog, Josie.

One last shot:

    Sounds like your class was tailor made for you and your friends. I'm going to see if there is anything like that around here. I could use some instruction and practice time with different settings, lighting, etc.
