So, move over Canon…here comes a new Nikon user. Yes, I’m switching over to Nikon…and I love it. My amazing photographer sister Jen and my brother Josh hooked me up with a sweet Nikon D40 and beautiful prime lense that has a 1.8 F stop! I get chills…for all of you that are non photographers…it means AMAZING photos. This blog post today is to #1 tell the world that I am in love with Nikon but in particular my family…its the backbone of who I am…the way I think, the way I love and the way I live. I am blessed with a wonderful family in Arizona and Colorado. My parents, oh my parents…they are my number one fans in life…its true. They love me, cheer for me…dream with me, help me and sometimes when necessary tell me to snap out of it and I love them dearly for it. I also have 2 older sisters, they support me, tease me, love me and are my friends whom I have always looked up to and admired and a younger brother that I ABSOLUTELY love to pieces, in case your wondering I ABSOLUTELY love my sisters too! When I got married in 2001, to my amazing super hot husband…he’s so going to be embarressed by this, I also married into an amazing wonderful family. Strength, character, love, determination…a few characteristics that describe Jon’s parents, sister and younger brother. Love you sooooo sooo much…
Okay, this blog is so about Nikon…and you see I get a bit sidetracked when I think of Nikon now…because everytime I shoot with a Nikon it will remind me of the love, oh the family love, that is allowing me to do what I love to do…Photography. Its me…it brings me joy, it brings out my creative side…and I just love it. So this blog is a tribute to you Nikon but also to my family. I love you all…and am so thankful for all you have done for me and my fam these past few years…
Oh, and here is my first pic with a Nikon…

Feelin’ the love! So glad you have your own camera now…and as Jen said, it will be fun to see what you see through its lens as you get used to it.
