  1. Nanners is famous! You get your own discount code now? :)

  2. I wish driving to LA didnt feel like driving to Canada to me, this would be a perfect pre-baby activity! Not that I have a DSLR anyways....

  3. How awesome! I just discovered that they live next door to my cousins.. so random. And I've loved the stuff you've linked, so I will definitely consider this class!

  4. Too bad she doesn't do one for pets. Granted, even though I can manually adjust most of those settings, I don't technically have an SLR. : (

  5. i really wish i could justify this. god knows i could use a lesson or sixty in photography.
