Take a picture, it'll last longer

I finally bit the bullet and bought a pro flash for my camera. Since I take more pictures than anyone I know, it seemed like a good idea to try and take the best pictures I can.

I've been shooting all day (in between diaper changes, feedings, playing ball and watching "Oprah." Side note: Sam pointed to Oprah today and said, "Momma!") and comparing the pictures. What's funny is that you become so conditioned to looking at washed out pictures that when you finally get a good flash, all the pictures look dark to you. Case in point:

If you click on these two pictures you might think that the one on the right is the better one but it's not. See how Boo's face is washed out?

Another reason I wanted to upgrade is for skin tones. Take a look at the picture of Mac in the story below this one. I thought that looked okay until I started shooting with the new flash today. Look at the skin tones in this picture (Sam is trying to grab Bobbi's tongue while simultaneously sticking hers out:
