A Work In Progress!

Sorry my updates have been scarce lately. I pretty much have the wedding all planned and I'm just waiting for things to start happening to update about.

Not to mention, I've taken a small break from planning and diy-ing lately because I have something else going on.

Want to know what it is? I'm sure you do!

My fiance bought me a lovely Christmas present this year!

I'd like to introduce you all to the new member of the family:

My Nikon d300s!!! He got me the camera body, 2 lenses, a camera bag, 2 batteries and some other goodies.

I've worked in photography a lot (I've done pictures for school yearbooks, prom, dances, spring pics, seniors, church directories, families, babies, children, etc). I even did a brief internship with a wedding photographer before Derrick and I ended up moving.  I've been wanting to start my own photography business for a long time now and a few years ago, my professional camera was stolen and I haven't been able to afford one. So.. my fiance surprised me with this bad boy and I've thrown myself into planning my business.

I've gotten some props ordered and I have 4 (yes FOUR) sessions booked for 3 weeks from this coming Wednesday! I'm so incredibly excited to get started and I'll make sure I update and show you all some of my work as I get it going.

But have no fear.. I'll still be updating alot about the wedding. I have a project going on now and I can't wait till it is finished and I can share it with you all. NO ONE knows about it but me.. so, keep a look out for that one.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!


  1. Congrats! I'm looking forward to seeing some photos. Double congrats on getting your business started!

  2. That is amazing! I want a DSLR. My old school film SLR just doesn't cut it anymore lol and I have been using just a point and shoot for a few years now. Good luck with your photography can't wait to see some!

  3. My DSLR Nikon D90 was damaged. I think I'm going to replace it once taxes come in. I don't know. I miss shooting anything and everything. I wasn't trying to start a business or anything. It was an outlet. Good luck! Best wishes for 2011!
