First Day of School + New Camera!

I got a new camera!!!  I got my Nikon D90 in 2009 and I haven’t been interested in picking it up.  I was finding it slipping focus a bit, I didn’t like the limited focal points, and the limited ISO, plus the technology is older.  I had been lusting after the new full frame Nikon Df since it came out and my very generous husband surprised me for our anniversary with a new camera!  It’s very different in the layout and will take some adjusting, but I love it so far.  My lenses feel brand new on a full frame—such a difference!  Now I need to sell some of my old equipment.

This year’s first day (first grade!) pictures are taken with my new camera and my 50mm f/1.4.  I didn’t do any editing besides cropping.  I don’t remember what I used last year, but probably my 24-70mm f/2.8 and I did edit. 

I can’t believe how much they’ve grown, especially Cooper.  Check out his head height compared to my arm.  The kid is only 6 and I’m 5’11”! (First Grade on left, Kindy on right)




And for some comparison to pre-school! (2014, 2013, 2011)
