Freaking OUT

If you don't already know, my husband rocks.
No really, he is amazing. Especially with surprises, you know the sweet just because flowers every girl loves? He does that.. and leaves them in my car sometimes. That's my absolute favorite. Last week sometime I got the BEST surprise at my door step.

The Valentine's letters were an added surprise. That husband of mine, I tell ya.. I am so blessed.
When we found out we were expecting our Raeritto last year he got me a fancy smancy camera to take pictures of her. Since then, my love for taking pictures has escalated. I've always loved photography and especially babies. I have a ways to go before I'm where I want to be, but everyone starts somewhere right? So far my goal is to only shoot in manual and I've actually got the hang of it (for the most part). Next up is learning Photoshop/Lightroom, which is like learning a new language. Hopefully within the upcoming weeks I'll get my hands on a better lens. The kit lenses that come with the camera just aren't as good as they could be. I have a 50mm 1.4 sitting in my cart on Amazon :) I hear it makes a HUGE difference in sharpness and picture quality compared to what I have now. 

Say a little prayer for me, I have a lot on my mind and I am REALLY wanting this to work out. First things first and that is getting my bachelor's degree. I am so close to getting done with it and I couldn't be happier. The past few months of school have been rough, which is probably due to doubling up on classes and watching the little while Pumpkin is away. Once that is done I want to hit this photography thing real hard. I'm placing God in the center of this.. as I should with everything, but He is really going to make this happen. I'm hoping to come up with a brand name other than using my name. I have a couple of things in mind.. I just can't settle. 

"We know that all things work together for the good of those that love Him, who have been called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28
