(a little early) SnapShot Sunday ~ featuring Francesca with MY something new

Well, this post isn't only about my Francesca - but it is about my new......!

Two weeks ago...I FINALLY broke down and made the purchase of a life time (well at least to me it was)...and my new BIG purchased finally arrived the week before Thanksgiving and boy am I having a blast playing with it!

What is it you ask?

Well it is the "Mac-Daddy" of all cameras ~ in my opinion. It is a Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP Digital SLR with 75-300mm Lens - Black!

(I also ordered a few other accessories for this "Mac-Daddy" that I am truly loving!)

Now that I have this amazing machine within my own hands, I can't believe I waited this long to get one (well in reality ~ it was the price that kept holding me back).

What made me purchase this camera now you ask?

Well...

1st ~ We are headed to Disney this coming January for 2 weeks to celebrate Francesca's 5th birthday and seeing how I don't want to miss one second of all the celebrating we will be doing - well you get the idea...

2nd ~ We once again {praying-hoping-praying} will be traveling to China for our son, Benjamin. Seeing how this will be our third time traveling together as a family (and of course Grandma is joining us) why not get the camera now and do some test shots...

and

3rd ~ I got an amazing offer on my old Sony camera that I just couldn't pass up...



Here are a few photos of my Francesca that are not touched up in any way...(not that she needs to be)





The photos are so crisp and clear...I still can't believe it has taken me this long to break down and purchase one...

But I am so happy that I did...

Ni Hao Y'all

We recently got a DSLR, too. Now, if I could just figure out what all the controls are for!!! I'm still shooting on "program" mode!!:)

Your daughter is just beautiful, and you are right - no touch up needed with that beauty! :)
