I have always enjoyed taking pictures and capturing moments. About 2 years ago (late 2007) my hubby and I bought a DSLR in anticipation of our son’s birth, and my interest escalated into a full-fledged hobby. I began obsessively taking pictures of my kiddo, occasionally managing to capture others things around me as well. ; )

My favorite lens is my nifty fifty. It stays on my camera the vast majority of the time. This is partially because I am a huge fan of natural light for photography, and thus use the low light capabilities of that lens often. I’m getting better at using my flash, especially when I am forced to we’ve been very lucky to have INCREDIBLE natural light in our homes, but other places we travel to aren’t so lucky) but I always prefer my natural light shots.

I use Lightroom2 for organizing and editing photos. Sometimes I’ll go for long stretches of time where I don’t have the time/inclination to edit and so will post lots of SOOC pictures. other times I’ll get really creative with Lightroom’s tools (and usually tag the photo with “lightroom” if that’s the case). Maybe one day I’ll get brave enough to try to learn Photoshop, but for right now I’m too cheap and too intimidated to try. ; ) I also mostly shoot in JPEG right now, which serves me well enough. Perhaps one day when I have a faster computer with more space I’ll switch to RAW…
