These preliminary designs for my photography business by Beth Bradford Designs.  I am totally and completely in LOVE.

I got my AF-S 50mm 1.4G lens in the mail yesterday...just in time for 2 year old shoot, with...wait for it...his new puppy!

[Three]
Some of my favorite shots of this past weekends shoot!  Can you tell photography is on my mind right now?!

Disclaimer:  Are these perfect?  Absolutely not, I actually see multiple things I could have, should have, will change next time.  BUT, I am learning and this as of course a free "practice" shoot with a family member.

I loved this shoot for may reason.  One being that this little one wanted NOTHING to do with having her picture taken, so it was great practice.  I also loved that she had recently cut her own hair...the mother was mortified and wanted to cancel pictures, but ended up going through with them.  I think she will look back on these and remember everything about her at 3...including that hair cut.  
I HAD to get one of these shots of her changing her baby.  So, cute!

This whole photography business is a total dream for me.  I have always wanted to do it, and honestly as expensive as equipment can be never thought I would.  My husband was the one who took the initial step and insisted we buy a camera.  I couldn't do this without his love and support.  
 Yes I can!
