Mommy's Newest Toy

Lucas, the wonderful husband that he is, has really encouraged me to start on my goal for 2012.  At this point in our lives, its not really realistic for me to jump straight to a DSLR camera and try to become a professional photographer, wife and working mom.  I think in the next year or two once I get more familiar with cameras and what exactly I want, I will take the plunge into getting a new camera, a "badass camera."

For now, Lucas and I got a Canon PowerShot SX230 HS, one of Canon's better point and shoot cameras on the market.  This will definitely be better for us since we are already towing around so much for Ke'alohi since she is so small.  I can't imagine having a camera bag on top of everything we already have.  If anyone knows of a photography class in Los Angeles, please let me know.

One of the main reasons why I want a new camera is so I can start my new project for 2012; It's called Project 52.  I found this project through one of my favorite blogs, Styleberry Blog. After picking a theme, you take a photo at least once a week that illustrates and captures that theme for the week over the course of the year.  Stay tuned for more posts and hopefully better pictures this year!
