I really couldn’t be more excited to have gotten a new camera! My husband and I decided to use some of our wedding gift money to make the purchase. After some research, we decided on the Nikon D5100, and so far, I think I’m in love.

I’m hoping to start a part-time photography business doing portraits for families, couples, and individuals. I’ve got a little work to do before I’m ready to officially start, but James Taylor (no, not that James Taylor, though I like him, too) from Outlaw Photography and PartTimePhoto.com has given me the resources and encouragement I needed to make the decision to work towards this goal.

And I’m lucky to have a friend and co-worker who is gorgeous and just starting to pursue modeling. We’ve both been practicing our respective skills on each other, and yesterday I had the pleasure of using my new camera at a really fun photo shoot of Bridget. I still have some processing to do, but I picked a few favorites and edited them each a few different ways. Culling down the 500+ photos is definitely the hardest part of the process for me. I’m working on it.

So here is a peek at yesterday’s shoot. I really love what I have so far! Let me know what you think. I’d love some feedback and/or photography advice, whether technical or business oriented. And as the main differences in these edits is the coloring (how much or how little saturation and/or color vs. black and white), I’d love to hear which style you like best. I like them all so much, I can never decide which to go with. Please, please, help me decide!
