Good morning, kiddle-mcgriddles! That’s what I call my kids sometimes. You never know what’s going to come out of my mouth.

But enough about me! Today I’m blog-swapping with Lena from Mom2MemphisAndRuby! She’s pretty awesome, so keep reading!

Hey dolls!

So happy to be visiting Megan here on Shaping Up… she’s one of the sweetest & coolest blogging chicks out there {but you knew that already, right!?} and I’m honored to be swapping spaces with her today!
I blog over at Mom2MemphisAndRuby… from which you’ve probably gathered that
a) I’m a mom
b) my kids’ names are Memphis and Ruby
Original, right!?

I like to pretend I’m fashionable and hip and *almost* did a fashion post… but instead I’m sharing something I’ve recently started dabbling in that has me pretty excited!
Scratch that!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a camera in my hands.
I was “that girl” that brought disposable cameras EVERYWHERE & I have the photo albums to prove it!
More recently, though… that passion has turned into a hobby… and that hobby is turning into something more.
I hope.
I’m in the midst of a 6 week digital photography course and I’m LOVING it!
I’ve lucked out in the past with some pretty cool shots with the auto presets on my cameras, but I finally purchased a big girl camera and I’m learning to shoot MANUALLY!
Super scary.
Math is not my strong point, and it seems like there are numbers being thrown at me every which way!
From “f-stops”
f5.6  f8  f11  f16  f22
and shutter speeds
1/125  1/500  1/800
etc., etc.
I’m going to stick with it, though.
I’ve made cheat sheets and I am practicing!
I’ve also just recently gone live with a photography-related blog:
Lena B Photography
Here’s a sample of what you will find me doing right now
{these were all shot manually during our last photography class}

I’d love for you to visit me over at Mom2MemphisAndRuby, and maybe even Lena B Photography!

You can also find me on
Facebook & Twitter!

Thanks again to Megan for inviting me here!
Pop on over to my blog to see what she’s up to today!

Thanks, Lena, for guest posting today! I’m loving that picture of the dock; I’d buy a print of it!
Thanks for reading!

Love it? Share it!
