Happy Early Birthday to me!

Earlier this year I was reading a photographer's blog who wrote a review on the Fuji Instax Mini Instant Camera that {Photojojo} is selling on thier website. OH MY GOSH!! One look at that baby and I said, "YES, please!" It quickly was added to my birthday list.

I was planning to get it as a birthday present to myself but as my birthday came closer I knew it wasn't going to happen since I need to save for --- well, I'll tell y'all later on another post soon --- SO, my bear sent me a birthday package in the mail and surprised me with this camera! He's just too sweet!!

Assembly was very easy. You just take it out of the box, pop the batteries in, pop the film in, and go. I am, however, adjusting to the way you're suppose to hold it. The camera stands vertically and I'm so used to rectangular cameras.

I took a few shots inside and some by mistake, haha. The shutter button is very sensitive so you don't really have to press it hard. I was amazed by the quality of it and the "not so bright but lot's of light" flash. For an instant camera, it's pretty good. I LOVE it and can't wait to use it all day tomorrow! (I took a photo of myself and dedicate it to my sister Jay who is probably saying, "Finally a self portrait!")

This next photo has nothing to do with my early birthday present, it's just something I want to share with you. I've been known to love the smell of cilantro and lemon/lime. I even wished (out loud) for a candle that smells like cilantro or lemon. WELL---I went to Big Lots and was looking around and THERE-IT-WAS! A Citrus Cilantro scented candle!! It has a yummy fresh scent. I bought two but I think I'll be going back to get more!!

I will be out for the weekend celebrating/packing/shooting a portrait session/and I'm sure more will be added to the list -- If you need to get in contact with me please send me an email to and I will reply as soon as I can when I return. Thanks!
