A very welcome distraction.

In the midst of our chaos. Amongst tools and paint cans, piles of masking tape and drywall dust, there sits an open box. On the side of the box is a picture of.....












a new camera!








After many many months of research and debate Dustin and I finally took the plunge and purchased some new equipment to support our photography business. I'm a bit ovewhelmed as it is a bit advanced for me yet but from what I've discovered...I'm SO impressed and excited and I LOVE IT! This is a tough time for us though because our attentions are supposed to be focused on getting this house done (almost there...by the way) BUT...now I am so distracted. It's like it's calling my name. Haunting me and taunting me to pick it up and push it's pretty buttons. Well, I HAVE and I WILL. I'd give you all the stats and details of the camera but you'd probably stop reading and smoke would billow out your ears. All you need to know it's that it's awesome and gives me the ability to capture moments like these....









Don't you love dimpled bums? Unless it's on your own rear of course.....

I'm with Heidi, camera details please!
And after seeing those photos I'm sure that the camera is not advanced for you at all.

You take the best pictures! I wanted to hire you this summer when we come out for our annual Penticton holiday to take the first family pictures with our baby. Any chance of coming to Red Deer after you move to take some family pictures? I wish we were closer to southern Alberta...

Tracy said...

I never get over how great you are at taking pictures! Can't wait to see what other creations come from the new camera :)
