I really feel like the Mamarazzi now!

I have been having a lot of fun practicing with my new camera lens that Jim gave me for Christmas. Officially it is a 75-300 mm lens...but what really matters to me is that I can take close-ups of Lia without being right in her face. Of course the weather in our neck of the woods has not been very cooperative...so my practice has mostly been inside...not the best for this lens. Undeterred, I have flipped the switch back into automatic and have become a shooting fool. These are a few pictures I took over the past few days. Lia was in the living room. And I was in the dining room. Yeah...you read that right...a whole room away. Almost unobtrusive. Ahhh....the possibilities are endless. I can't wait for some sunny weather and wide open spaces!

These are great and I am so glad that you feel like a "real" mamarazzi - you always were in my book :D

Love that lens! Isn't it great not to be in their face? Now you can stalk her without her being SO aware : ) Paige never knows half the time when I am taking her pic...I just act like I am playing with my camera.

That Lia has the sweetest little face and a perfect little set of pouty lips. I just love her!

Would love to have that lens myself! But honestly...does she take a bad picture ever? You have the most lovely subject to shoot!

Wow...how amazing that you were able to get such close up pics that far away. I am sure my girls would LOVE for me to have a lens like that, so I would keep my camera away from them. lol!

Beautiful pics of your sweet girl!!

And yes...the weather has been just plain yucky lately!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Great pics! We too have a lens like that and it does make a difference in not always being in their face! Our weather is horrendous here, way too much snow, ice, and freezing temps. There's no way we'll get outside for outdoor shots for months! It does challenge you to work on those indoor shots though... :)
