Iowa City Photographers Iphone Upgrade

Alright, alright, I know- I’m super late on this, but I’ve upgraded to a smart phone. See the thing is that I’m not opposed to technology or being connected, on the contrary- I have a job in IT and lurrv social media.

To be honest, I’m sorta cheap.  But the hubs and I realized it was time to make the leap and upgrade.  I’ve also been wanting to instagram and have a decent, easy, and accessible camera at the ready.  While I’ll never argue that iPhone cameras are appropriate to capture all of life’s moments, I have found myself annoyed when I spotted this great sunset or funny sign without my DSLR to capture it.

A few of my favorite apps?

Instagram (duh!), Duolingo, Words with Friends (I know, still behind), Photoshop Express, & Alt Photo

Feel free to follow me on instagram :) and check out a few of my fave iPhone pics:

Yes, photographers do enjoy taking photos of their cameras!

I’ve made it pretty obvious that shooting film is pretty important to me as an artist, photographer, and person… Well when I dropped my film camera (a Rebel) on the ground and had to revert to using rubberbands to keep it held together for months, I decided it was time for an upgrade.  I’ve only had the chance to take this lovely out for a spin a few times, but I am super excited for what it will offer me as a photographer.

For those of you that are interested my search process went a bit like this:

1. Compatible with my Canon lenses (with autofocus- My eyesight needs it!)

2. 35 mm (not ready for the medium format leap yet…)

3. In my budget…

4. Flash compatibility

And voila I wound up with the EOS 3. Obviously, it was a slightly longer process than this, but you get the general idea…

Here’s a few pretties I’ve gotten from this camera :)

Iowa City Baby Photographer | McKayla’s Christmas Shoot!December 11, 2013

You may remember this little nugget (or likely not) from when she was in her momma’s belly.

I was SOOO excited to meet her, and of course like most things in my life, it turned into a photo shoot.  Be on the look out for:

1. the MOST priceless facial expressions!

2. the major ballerina potential in this little sugar plum fairy!

Iowa City Maternity Photographer | The W FamilyDecember 9, 2013

As you’re about to see Jeanna and her hubby are ridiculously good looking, and good news- they’re having baby! I know Tess & Ruby are going to make amazing sisters.  I can’t wait to meet this little baby, but in the meanwhile, enjoy these Christmas-themed maternity photos :)

Mentor Ohio Pet Photographer | Goldendoodle in Black & WhiteDecember 5, 2013

A few shots from my mini session with Riley (who’s basically my niece).  Don’t let her adorable eyes fool you! She’s quite the rascal and has an irrational fear of pillows.
