Alex is a friend from college, but I think it's been since then that I've seen her. Needless to say, I was thrilled to get an email from her about taking family photos and some of her cute little man who just turned one. It was so nice to see her and to meet her family. :)

With the crazy fall photo sessions coming to an end, I thought about what I might do to reward myself. :) I briefly thought about doing nothing at all. But that's no fun, right? Then I decided I would be completely irresponsible and get one of these:
It would look mighty fine swingin' from my arm, would it not? But then the fog cleared and I came to my senses and decided to make a wiser, although less fashionable, decision. A new camera (body) was what I wanted. The one I currently use is a great one but we've had it for about eight years so I figured it was time for an upgrade. I had two different cameras in mind and figured once I went to Rockbrook Camera, I could ask a few simple questions, play with the cameras and make a quick decision. Ha. The poor sales guy was stuck with me for a good hour and a half. That's like an eternity when we had a 3-year old and 7-month old in tow. I kept going back and forth on which one I wanted. By the end, I just wanted to throw myself onto the ground and surrender. I'm a terrible decision-maker.
I finally chose the Canon 7D.
And so far, I love it. I love it. I love it.
This new camera body in conjunction with my fabulous 24-70 mm lens is oh-so-amazing. They're a perfect fit. :)

I was excited to see the "M" family again last weekend at a park I haven't visited since high school...ahh, the memories. I love seeing how much the girls have grown and changed each time. Two little blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauties. Such a sweet and loving family.
