I get asked quite often what kind of camera I have, what lenses I use and recommend, and what gear I might recommend for daily use at home or for a beginning photographer.
Unfortunately, I've only ever used two "real" (DSLR) cameras in my life.
I started my business using a Canon Rebel t3. Which was great for about a year before I and my knowledge outgrew that little cameras capabilities. Then I purchased my baby, the Canon 5d Mark ii. We've been together for almost 4 years now, and she's still going strong.
Since I have so little experience with other cameras, and have never even picked up a Nikon, I can only recommend the Canon Rebel series cameras to start your photographic journey. THIS is a great starter kit to get you going.
Here's a more detailed list of what I carry with me to every session:
This first week has been challenging, eye opening, and fun! I'm learning to embrace the grain that comes along with shooting indoors with only natural window light (and cloudy, rainy light at that). Sometimes my photos will probably be of silly, simple things, because really, how many different ways can a person photograph the same people? I'm learning to look for the beauty in the simple, and how to take each day and each lesson as it arrives.
I also think a 365 page photo album will be needed by the end of this year. :)

p.s., don't mind the nakey baby. We're potty training.
We made it guys! A new year. For some the new year is flying around the corner with rainbows and butterflies on the horizon, and for others, we've made it by the skin of our teeth. Whatever the case may be, NOW is the perfect time to set new goals.
I have a few of my own...
Not too complicated, right? Okay, okay. the sleep thing might be difficult.
