Getting packages in the mail kinda gives me the same feeling of a kid on Christmas morning. We decided recently to make several new business buys, and I was so excited when two of those purchases arrived this week. The first was my new Nikon D700 which I was super pumped about. The second was a Nikon 50mm 1.4D, and let me just tell you, I think I'm in love (shhhh - don't tell Josh).
I can't wait to try out this baby on some portraits, but for now, I had to take advantage of the only subjects that would remain still for me.

Monty - my most loyal subject. (f1.8, 1/40 sec, iso200)
My epiphanie bag that Josh surprised me with for Christmas. I think it's about as sexy as a camera bag can get. (f1.8, 1/13 sec, iso 200)
In other photo news, I just purchased my ticket to the PASS tour in Charlotte on June 20, and I am soooo looking forward to meeting and getting some tips from a few of the best in the industry: David Jay, Promise Tangeman, Zach & Jody of Gray Photography in Nashville (these guys seriously inspired and encouraged me - via their blog - to follow my dream). I'm also looking forward to meeting some fellow photographers - if you're headed to the tour in Charlotte too, hit me up!
