Editing Photos

Well I've now done my first family photo shoot and am very happy with the results. They came out really well and the mom begged me to look at the photos before I even edited and she was super happy with them :) It's getting to the end of the year and finals are coming up. Pretty scary but still I'm ready for next semester. Here are some photos from my first photo shoot.

Nikon D5100

So I'm trying to figure out what lens to buy for my camera. The only lens I have right now is the 18-55mm. I'm thinking of getting a 50mm cause it's on the cheaper end of lenses and I've heard good things. Any suggestions?

Knit Hood

This is my own pattern. I took my idea from this pattern. But since I don't have circular knitting needles I created my own patter. (

If you need clarification on the pattern please comment.


  • Yarn
  • Knitting needle 10mm
  • Sewing Machine (or you can hand sew with the yarn)


  • cnf- cable needle hold in front
  • cnb- cable needle hold in back
  • lf- left needle
  • *___* -repeat what is inside till end of row

What you will be making is a big rectangle. How long it is is up to you (How many you cast on and how many times you repeat the steps.)

Cast on a multiple of 14 plus 8. See Pattern.
This first part is for  where the buttons will be placed. You can repeat these steps until you are satisfied.
  1. Row 1(RS): k
This part is for the cabled look of the pattern. Repeat as much as you'd like for the length of the hood (how far back it goes).
  1. Row 1(RS): k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  2. Row 2: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  3. Row 3: k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  4. Row 4: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  5. Row 5: k4, *p4, slip 3 sts to cnf, k3 from ln, slip sts from cn onto ln then k3, p4, *k4
  6. Row 6: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 until you reach desired length.
When finished fold the work in half so that the right sides are facing each other. Sew one side of the work together to make a hood.

What's Up?

So my posting on here has been at an absolute minimum. Last week I had three tests and this week I have two. School is getting close to being over and I'm super nervous. Looks like I pull out this semester with four B's and a C. Not ideal but oh well.

This weekend I'm going to be doing a photo shoot and on Tuesday I'm going to go down with my man and figure out where I want to take the girls. Also probably take some test shots :) I'm pretty excited cause this is my first photo shoot ever and I think it will help me a lot with figuring out my style and what I need to work on. I think I might even go out today and take some shots. It's so pretty outside with all the leaves changing.
