catching up

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (now that it’s almost halfway through December!) and that your holiday prep is well underway… that date sneaks up on all of us, I think!

In the spirit of holiday, I just wanted to pop in and share some super cute nuggets that I was lucky enough to shoot a couple weekends ago for their family’s holiday card.  Oh, and show off why I think everyone needs the super high quality, yet super affordable Canon 50mm … I mean.. just look at that delicious, creamy, velvety bokeh.

Okay, the cuteness helps, but for reals, this lens is a game changer.  I don’t think I have thought twice about my other lenses since clicking this baby into place.

If anyone is considering an additional lens, I clearly can’t find enough praises to sing.  The crisp quality, the wide aperture, the compact feel… the list goes on.  My only regret is that I didn’t pounce on this lens sooner.  If anyone is looking for a last minute gift for a photographer family member or friend? I highly recommend this little gem.  A nice, affordable $125 (+ free shipping on Amazon!).  And I promised this isn’t some type of ad or sponsored post.  I mean, my lens was free, but that was thanks to Chase Visa’s nifty rewards program where I just happened to have 125000 points saved up.  Yup. Exactly enough.  I choose to see that as fate.  I was definitely meant to purchase a lens rather than pay down my credit card bill for the month.  Right?

Well if that's not the darlingest outtake I ever did see... complete accident. But aren't the best ones always accidents?

What I was actually going for. I just wish it was more head-on.

And of course the group shot with their little friend.
