Why I Love My Speedlite

Every Sunday morning my kids are subject to me and my camera! I've never taken them to have a professional picture taken, so I take advantage of Sunday mornings when they are already dressed up anyway for church. I try to get ready so that we have about ten minutes or so to take a few quick pictures of them all dressed up. We don't have time to go outside for these or to the park so we have to take then in the house where I don't have a lot of natural light to work with at that time of day. 

So...to get around that I use my Speedlite and I love it! Anytime we do anything indoors I pull out my speedlite and I have always been so happy with the final outcome of my pictures. It's an excellent flash for non-professional photographers IMHO!!

I took these pictures yesterday morning before church. Most of them are straight out of the camera. I think I adjusted the temperature on a couple of them, but that's it and they all turned out great!
I love this candid shot of her laughing!
And her beautiful smile, too of course!
She had brought her babies out of her room this morning and made a pallet for them in the living room!
My gadget girl - she plays with my old iPhone and loves to take pictures with it! What can I say? She is her mother's daughter!!
This is a common background for these Sunday pictures...
She loves to hug on him...sometimes I have to remind her not so tightly, though!! :)
Like I said - a gadget girl!! LOL!
