Santa Visited Me Yesterday!!




The top photo is the new gear that arrived yesterday via UPS aka Santa! I love the UPS dirver because he brings me more goodies than my husband ever thought about getting me. In this photo is an external hard drive that will hold a terrabyte of information (that is alot), probably more than I will need but the price was right! The small case in front is my portable hard drive that holds 250 GB of info which is perfect for traveling with my laptop to do shoots. I also got a remote (not in the pic) for my camera! Then there is the new lens!! It is a Sigma and I LOVE IT! After much research I went with this insted of the Nikon equivalent! This is my new fav by the way!

The second pic is the first thing I saw with the new lens (forgive the subject matter)! I love the sharp focus on the paper towels and the softer focus of everything else! This will be my new go to lens! This lens is also perfect for low light situations bar none!

The third photo is a macro of some lighted garland that I made! Again I just like the sharpness of the subject in contrast to the soft focus in the rest of the photo!

Tomorrow will be Christmas again because my new gear bag will arrive via the same big brown truck! My Wacom tablet will be here next week! Wow, it does not get any better than this!

I hope you are all ready for Thursday when I will post Sadie's photo shoot. We are busy preparing for the day since she will turn two! She has asked for a tricycle and helmet so that is what the little ladie is getting!

Oh WOW!! New camera stuff!!! It does not get any better does it?
I saw you listed me on the site and blogged thing. Thanks so much your the best! If I didnt tell ya aready, I was interviewed for this fridays feature on KatyDidandKid. I will post about it right before it goes up probably. For now Im off to post that tear jerker story of how I died and lived to tell about it.

Love and Prayers,

I love when the UPS man comes over! It's the best part of the day because he always comes bearing gifts!

Jo said...

He was just here again! The neighbors are gonna start talking! My new gear bag just arrived! It holds all my camera gear and my laptop! Yeah!

Oooh, how fun! I have a list a mile long of things I need to get. Let me know how the external hard drive works for you. I've been pondering getting one for myself.

To answer your question on my blog, when I bought my camera (a canon) it came with the software to download in order to link up. It is very groovy because immediately after taking the shot, I can see it on my screen. I can also still save to the flash card as backup while it saves it to the laptop.

Well Merry Christmas. How exciting! I can't wait to see Sadie's photo shoot and I am so excited for you. I'm glad you explained about the photos... you have such a good eye - after you explained I had a big, "Ohhh yea!" moment.

How fun. Lucky you. I bet your going to be busy playing with all your new toys this week. I love the clarity and the color of the pictures. Beautiful. Jo, thanks so much for your sweet comments. It's means a lot. Hope you guys start feeling better soon. It's no fun being sick. I'm glad I found a good doctor too. Just blows my mind that doctors can be so careless when it comes to children. So scary.

I posted the story I was telling you about. Make sure you dont miss it. I promise it will touch you.

Love and Prayers,
