Apologies for my recent disappearance. Â I still haven’t gotten this blog thing down.
I have some sad news. I broke my lovely 50mm 1.4 lens. My lovely, lovely lens.
Hopefully it is fixable–I’m dropping it off at a local shop tomorrow. Because I don’t know what to do without my wonderful lens (and because losing it sent me into a pathetic spiral of depression), I decided to bite the bullet and ordered a new walk-around lens, which I’ve been needing to do for a while. So even without my 50mm, I should be good to go soon.
This past weekend Joseph and I drove down to visit my family. We were overdue for a visit–so much so that we exchanged Christmas presents in March. I was also looking forward to doing senior portraits for my sister and her friend and baby portraits for my newborn nephew Lennon.
Unfortunately, just as I was stepping outside for the first portrait session, I dropped my camera. My advice for you: Always wear a neck strap. I’m still very angry at myself.
Here are the photos I snapped that morning before the perilous drop.
This is my brand new baby nephew, Lennon. He is seven weeks old and beautiful!

I crocheted this baby blanket for Lennon and am so happy I got to see him sleep with it that day.

Ryan belongs to my sister’s friend. He is a charmer! I hope to see him again soon to photograph his amazing smile.
