Happy Friday friends! I wanted to let you all know about a fun sale going on right now. Courtney, a darling blog reader of mine, wrote an e-book called The Spaghetti Shots: how to take better photos of your kids during everyday life. It is such a fun, easy read that is full of tips and tricks on how to capture better photos of your kids. PERFECT for learning the basics of how to use a DSLR camera (no more auto!). She is having a back to school sale today (Friday) and is offering this fun e-book on Amazon for only $2.99! You can learn more about it and purchase it here. I read the whole thing in one night and kept thinking “So wish I would have had this when I first bought my DSLR.” I have learned a lot through trial and error!
My best trick for getting decent pictures of my non-stop on the go kiddos is to take A LOT of pictures. For every pic that turns out great, I take anywhere from 5-15 that don’t look so hot. But it is SO worth it when you capture that moment that just melts your heart.
This little guy doesn’t have to work to hard to melt mine.
Enjoy your weekend! I hope it’s a happy one.

Gorgeous photo Erin! How much will your little guy enjoy your new pool?! Happy weekend to you too (down here mine are already tucked up in bed!) xx
Erin – thank you so much for posting about my ebook sale! And that is an ADORABLE photo of your son!!
I think I will check out this ebook. I have found having the sun at your back is helpful too. That is a trial and error lesson :) Thanks for sharing!
Such a great photo! Have a fantastic weekend.
I agree, I have to weed through SO many pics to get that really good one. But its so worth it! I also end up editing/cropping and color-correcting the keepers in Picasa. Now I just need to get in the habit of printing them out monthly and sitting down to create scrapbook pages!
If I don’t have a Kindle, can I still get the ebook?
Thanks friends! That’s another great tip Nicole! Unknown – I’m not sure! Click on CWestlake’s comment above (she’s the one who wrote the ebook). :) You can email her and ask.
His smile is so contagious!
I clicked the link to order and it is priced at $4.99. When will the sale price be active?
Anonymous – the sale was a one day thing (sorry I didn’t make that more clear!). Now it’s regular price, but still a great deal at only $4.99!
Is the ebook available for iPad? Sounds like a great one to read as my photos of my children need a lot of work!!
I found your blog from random clicking and a Pinterest post, I think.
I’ve been clicking around to random posts and I just want to say that you are a breath of fresh air! Your sweet personality is all over this blog and I love it! There is so much ugliness on the internet and so much darkness, it’s a pleasure to spend a little time on the sunny side of the street (see what I did there?)
Thanks for the smile today.
