I love it so much, I want to marry it!

In July, I got a new Camera!!

Isn't it beautiful?!! When it arrived, I (only half-jokingly) told my husband he would have to sleep on the couch, so that the camera could sleep on his pillow. :))
I didn't really move dear hubby out of the bedroom..I made her a nice bed in my super padded camera bag and she sleeps happily there ;)

I am still in love with it today! It is a great camera!! Here are a few of the first images I captured with it just playing around (read:: mis-matched kiddos with messy hair) that first day!

The Gibbs Family ~ My first family reunion shoot!

My dear friend, Carrie, presented me with a wonderful opportunity this summer. Her family has a big (by big, I mean Huge!) family reunion every 2 years. They always have a family portrait made while everyone is in town for the reunion, and she asked me to be the photographer this year!

This was my first family reunion shoot.. go big, or go home, right?!! :) There were 28 people in the group shot!

The guitar in the front is in memoriam of Travis Cook. His sister Temesa is holding the guitar.

The shoot went great, they are a fun bunch!! I learned a lot that day, and I am so grateful for the opportunity!! :)

Poor neglected blog!!!

If my blog had feelings, no doubt, this would be the face it would make! I have neglected it for so long! I could make a list of reasons..or rather, excuses for why I have neglected it, but there is one real reason:

Obsessive–compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is a personality disorder which involves an obsession with perfection, rules, and organization.

That being said, I feel like my posts of my photography sessions need to go in order, and since I am so far behind, it is a daunting task to think of even starting!! But, I will. I mean.. I AM going to start. Now. Well, after I finish this post and get the little princess an after school snack ;)

So many days, I think.. oh THIS (insert funny/shocking/amazing story from a day in a mommy/photographer/nurse's life) would be great to blog about! But, I can't do that because of the lack of catch up posting I have done (see above definition).

So. Now, I am going to find princess her snack, and sit right down and start some photo blogging! ;)
