Oh, hey. It's been a while.

Hello all!

It has been a long time since I have updated, yes, and I am sorry for that. We recently welcomed a new addition to the family and apparently babies take up a lot of time. Who knew? : P Everyone is happy and healthy, just quite busy at the same time.

But enough of that. On to the photography! I was recently approached by a cousin of mine and asked if I wouldn't mind taking some family photos of they do not have many and the ones they do have are from their phones. (I am totally not dissing phone-photos as I am a big fan. But I also totally get it.)

So off to Valley Forge we went! The weather was perfect - a small storm had just rolled through leaving big fluffy clouds that gave nice shade while still letting soft pretty light through. The subjects were wonderful and fun. Their son was beyond adorable. In the photography world, it was a perfect situation for some great photos.

I used the widest aperture I could for these photos so that I could get good background blur. I think for the lense that I had, the lowest was f/3.5. And the shutter speed varied depending on what location we were in, but it was also generally on the lower side: 1/100-1/250. And the ISO was around 100-200 for sharpness in late afternoon/evening time.

It feels great to be "back in the game," so they say! And it was so much fun to have this chance to stretch my photography legs again. Hiatus over. Time to snap on! (ha... ha...)
