Yippee!! My New Canon 6D

What a weekend! On Friday I got the best present ever! It wasn't even my birthday or Christmas or anything! Check it out:

Can you believe it?!! I got a brand new camera! And not just any camera, I got a Canon 6D! Isn't it beautiful?! I am SO excited!

My first DSLR was my Canon XSi, which I have had for years. I loved that camera and learned a lot in our years together. I started out shooting fully automatic, but as the years went by I learned more about aperture, shutter speed and ISO. I branched out into other camera modes, and finally learned to shoot in manual mode.

Then it happened... I started getting frustrated with the limitations of my camera. It wasn't fast enough, I couldn't shoot video, I couldn't crank the ISO high enough for those low light situations, and the list goes on. Fortunately my husband and his father are big supporters of my passion for photography. So they started conspiring to upgrade my equipment. Obviously the result is the beautiful piece of equipment above, and all I can say is thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!

This weekend my new camera and I have been getting to know each other. We have done a little star gazing and got caught up in the moon glow.

We have looked up high...

and searched down low.

We chased after the kids and cheered as my son scored a goal at his soccer game.

We decided to follow the wind and go fly a kite.

We couldn't resist sneaking into my daughter's room while she was napping and crank up the ISO.

I guess you could say my new camera and I are getting to know each other, and I think it is the start of a beautiful friendship.

Now I just need to find the perfect camera bag for my new big girl camera. It seems I didn't just outgrow my old camera, I also outgrew the bag! I have been searching online and LOVE all the beautiful camera bags that are being made with women in mind. So tell me, what camera bag do you carry?
