“Far, far better things…” {mt. pleasant, tx engagement and portrait photographer}

May 7, 2012

Yes, folks, I have upgraded 😀 :D.I am  now the happy owner of a Nikon D700 AND a 50mm 1.4. Having a full frame camera+the beautiful softness of 1.4=an incredible combination :D.
After taking just one picture with my new camera, I was ecstatic. I kept explaining to any family member near by how incredible is was. Haha :D. So, here are the first pictures taken I’ve taken with it! :D.

This is my cat Tiger :). Dad and Mom let me adopt him from the pound when I was 8 years old :D.
(I actually wanted to name him “Henry”, but my brothers, Jay and Daniel, wouldn’t have that. lol).

He’s become very relaxed and sweet in his old age ;).
The Hydrangeas are blooming!
And it’s about time to start swimming :).
Buddy chillin’ :).
I’m a happy girl :D.
Yes, this is kind of a random break in the pretty nature pictures, but I’m a very random person. Hehe :D.
AXE now has a scent for GIRLS! Yes, it smells fine, but I mainly got it in honor of it’s fantastic smelling brothers. Haha. Now I can say I wear AXE! 😀
Looking so noble on top of my laundry pile :).
I was hot and sweaty from all that runnin’ around the yard and taking pictures :D.
But then the evening light called me out for more :).
Junior looking glorious.



Umbrella reflection :).



Precious child
(I call her that all the time. I also call Tiger “son”. Haha).




Oh, these colors. Love this.



First day to wear my new jeans from “LOFT“. Looove them :).

Looking forward to the things God has prepared for me because I know His will is perfect and the best way that I never could’ve imagined. Praise the Lord :).

With a smile,
