The New Additions... the camera bag, that is.

After Nathan shot a wedding in Pacific City this month, we decided it was finally time to invest in some fixed zoom lenses for portrait photography. The clarity in a fixed zoom lens is so superior to a zoom lens.

The two lenses we invested in were the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G and the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D. We're kind of in love with them. They're definitely taking some getting use to, as you have to move your body to zoom rather than adjusting the lens, but the quality of photos is totally worth the amount of movement involved. And hey, it's photography AND a workout.



There's a ton more photos to come...we took the boys out to the Evergreen Air & Space Museum this evening to play on their huge play structure and explore the airplanes they have around the buildings. It was a ton of fun - the boys even went down the super tall slide all by themselves! Over and over again! I'd love to share more of the photos tonight, but this momma has to be to work in about 8 hours. So I'm off to bed.
