Family Easter Photos - Part 1

I have about 150 photos to sort through this week. But for now... before I am off to bed I wanted to share these. Also I wanted to share with you how incredibly blessed I am too! I have booked a couple of weddings this week. Praise God!! I am so excited to really start pursuing photography. No more excuses... time for a new beginning and time to focus on my dreams. My husband gave me permission to get a 2nd camera. I wanted a full - frame but for now I am going to just stick with the camera I know and just upgrade. I ordered my Nikon D90. I got a great deal on it. Our accountant made a mistake on our tax return and I ended up getting more back then originally thought. It allowed me to get a secondary camera that is much needed when shooting weddings. God is good isn't he!! :D

So a lot of these pictures were taken with my new 80-200mm lens (thank you to that very special person in my life who helped me get this lens... and I promise that I will NEVER forget you for believing in me).

Please let me know what you think of the pictures. The ones of Josh and me were taken by my mother... Didn't she do fabulous! This is my mom... Isn't she beautiful?

My mom and my sister Courtnee

And a super adorable couple getting their engagement photos done in the park... hope they don't mind I took a picture! LOL!

I love my husband... he is such a good man! I can't even imagine what my life would be like without him

You have the most beautiful family. Your Mom is so pretty. I love that she helped you get your lens! Do you believe I am so not cool. I only have my ONE lens that comes with the camera. I keep thinking I need to up my coolness factor...but then I don't do it!

congratulations on the weddings. That is the best!

Congratulations on all God has blessed you with! So glad to hear about the success you are enjoying, both with sessions and the ability to get a second camera. Can't wait to see where He takes you! And you Mom did a very nice job on the pictures of you and your husband. :)
