i’m kinda freaking out here

So, I love taking pictures. Love it. But buying a big fancy camera hasn’t really ever been in our budget. What kinda of a blogger am I without the latest and greatest?? It’s a shame, really. I kid, I kid.

I got a little birthday money and was dreaming about what I could buy with it. A new bag for The Influence Conference? Well, that was taking care of because my precious new friend Rebecca is making me one to carry! All I could think about was a new camera.Β 

About 2 and a half years ago when I was about to pop with Jessi Girl, my mother-in-law gifted me her camera. My first dslr. It was seriously one of the best things anyone has ever given me. I was obsessed. I learned so much from that camera, but lately I’ve kinda been stuck. I want to do more, and I felt like it was limiting me. I was ready to upgrade and learn more! That camera was a major blessing to me and I hope it’s a major blessing to the sweet new home it’s going to (one of my local blog readers, hi Toni!!).

I got some really great pics out of that camera and so many memories.

Pause with me for a nostalgic moment, shall we?

Pictures like these:

And, oh man. I’m so glad I caught this happy cow moment:

OH, and this. Just makes me smile:

I had some good times with that camera. But, I sold that bad boy and bought myself a new one!!!!!!!! Thank goodness I was able to sell some stuff to cover the cost of the camera without giving my hubby a heart attack!

Now I will be sitting at my doorstep waiting for this beauty to arrive:

I’m so thankful for this investment for our family and my business!

    How awesome!!! Congrats on the new camera!

  2. That’s the camera I got with my birthday money last year and I love it! I’m sure I could take even better photos with it if I would sit down for a few hours and learn some better photography tricks, but I’m too busy keeping up with my little girl! I’m sure you will enjoy it a lot!

  3. Ooh how exciting! I desperately want a dslr as I love taking photos but it just isn’t in our budget right now. I did however go to a session with Julia boggio (one of the uk’s leading wedding photographers and the lady who got to dance with Patrick swayze on Oprah!) And she taught us how important lighting is and how to take amazing pictures even on a phone by being smart with light. I’m.going to have to stick to that for now, but one.day I’ll be joining you with dslr

    You will LOVE it! We bought one for work a couple years back – it’s the camera I “learned” on. I still don’t know much, but I can tell you it takes fantastic pictures regardless of your skill level. And it’s so easy to carry around!

  5. Yay!!! Happy birthday KK!! You will love it!

  6. I have a T3i and I LOVE it! If you ever want any tips, I’d be happy to share! It’s really user friendly!
