Playing Catch-Up ! 3/14 - 6/14

Jun 30, 2014

So because I've been such a poor blogger the past few months (it's embarrassing even to type that), I've decided to do a general recap of the time I've missed - just to hit a few of the high points ;) That way we can happily move on from here and basically be caught up. So without further ado, I present to you March thru June, 2014:

(Before we even get started here I just want to point out that these are all photos off my crappy phone so bear with me on the quality factor. Hoping to upgrade soon! See here for more on that :)) 


First up : EASTER 2014

On The Hunt For A New DSLR

Jun 25, 2014

ATTENTION ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS, BLOGGERS, MOMTOGS...
and anyone else who may have any advice regarding the purchase of my first DSLR camera:



I'm finally taking that wonderful step on my way to show stopping momtography - the purchase of my very first DSLR! (Well, technically 2nd but we aren't counting the first time. It was a major fumble in my photography career [and I use that term very lightly] and we're not going there today.) However, regardless of the number DSLR I am currently on, I need major assistance. I've got it narrowed down to two but am not sure if I should be going with the entry level - which is primarily what I've been looking at. Or if I should just take the leap and go for a mid level to save cash down the road. And that is why I'm taking this issue to the blogging world. What are all of your thoughts?


I'm planning to use my lovely new camera for primarily Lifestyle photography. Honestly my main subjects from day to day include: 75% my 1 year old, 25% miscellaneous/other. (I know, that was so well thought out ;P) But still, mostly accurate. (You can get a pretty good idea of what my photography will consist of here) I don't have any plans as of today to become a professional photographer, although that's the role I'd like to take on for myself and my family. I've always had an affinity towards photography and I'm SUPER excited for this next step in developing my own personal touch to put on my photography. I'm not a huge fan of anything generic and my current model has been driving me absolutely crazy. I feel as if I've learned all there is to learn on the little devil and am so ready to be rid of it. 'On to the next!' as they say...

Hello Again!!

Jun 24, 2014


Ahhh, hello again blog world! It's been entirely too long. I've been away for a while - let's just say it was for my health - but I am SO super excited to dive back in head first! And as a positive that came out of my little reprieve from blogging, I am just brimming with new ideas for blog posts so this little mama isn't going anywhere again anytime soon! (Not planning to at least)
