Testing, Testing 1, 2, 3

My new lens arrived today.  I didn’t even know it!  I had listened for the door all day and then had finally given up and decided that it’s not going to be here until next week.  My husband and I went to take the dogs and Mya for a walk and when we opened the door, there it was.  I asked my husband, “Do they have any idea how much that thing costs?!!  They just left it laying on the front porch?”  I was so excited to try it out but had to wait until we got to a spot in the neighborhood where we could let the dogs run free and let Mya walk around.  It was torturous just having the camera riding in the stroller and I couldn’t even touch it.  Finally I got to try it out but then realized that I hadn’t put the memory card in it.  lol  I didn’t care.  I took one picture, looked at it, took another, looked at it.  They didn’t get saved but I didn’t care.  I was so amazed by the clarity, color, and sharpness.  I have never seen such a thing!!! EVER!  I am so in love with this camera.  When we got home, I got Mya out on the front porch and asked her to give me her smile.  She wasn’t into it.  Shocker!  😉  I’ve got some learning to do, but I am so excited about it!  Now if I can just relax.  I asked my husband, “Where should I put this camera so that nothing can happen to it?!  Will I be able to leave the house with it?  I sure hope so!  I’m sure clients hope so too!  😉

Here is my sample picture for the evening.  Still working on the huge aperature.  Never had that as an option before!


Still here!

So I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth!  I know, no new pictures this week.  Makes me sad!  I was supposed to do photos for a family on Sunday but of course it rained, hard!  And it was freezing!  So we are doing them this weekend instead.  Please no more rain!  Now as long as my new lens gets here to go with my camera, that’s just sitting in the box, everything will be perfect!  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Okay, Okay!!!!

So I’ve gotten a few too many emails from friends who are freaking out.  NOoooooo, I’m not pregnant.  LOL  So sorry to scare all of you.  BUT, there is a new baby on the way to our house and here it is!


The stork will be delivering it next week!

This will also be coming, but a week later, oh it’s going to be torture just staring at my camera but not being able to use it!!


So for those of you wondering why the price jump starting in November.  This is why!!  I will need to pay this off before the year 2020!  😉  I am so excited to take pictures with this “baby”!  They will be so much more crisp and clear!  Okay, feel better, friends?  🙂

Can I Get a Woot Woot?!

I needed to take a minute to thank someone very important who has been a huge help to me in starting my business and keeping it running smoothly.  I love the creative side of having a photography business but the business side of it?  Ugh, forget it!  This man has helped me in so many ways:  helped me open my business account at the bank which I had been putting off forever, helped me to find the right website, the best site for ordering prints on-line (coming in January!), he has even helped me recover some lost photos when I accidently reformatted my camera before uploading some pictures (my own, not any of yours! ;)).  The man is a genius with a capital “G”!  I love him dearly and just wanted to say THANK YOU!!  I couldn’t do this without you!
