What’s in My Bag

I love that all these vendors have “girl” camera bags.  My latest love is this bag by Kelley Moore.  It’s the Chapel Orange…

I shoot with the Canon MKIII – When I first got it, I fell asleep with it in my arms…LOL (shhh, don’t tell anyone – LOL)


My two favorite lenses are the 70-200mm 2.8L  II and the 35mm 1.4L  I use the 35 for 90% of my newborn images and the 70-200 for the bulk of my outdoor images.



The other lenses that are in my bag are the:

Canon 24-70 2.8L II


Canon 17-40mm f/4L


Canon 135mm 2.0L


And my FUN lenses – they are not professional L lenses but they are a lot of fun!  The first one is the 100 2.8 and the last one is the 15mm 2.8 fisheye.



As a back up camera, I use the 5D classic and I am also shooting b/w film images (new this year) with a Canon iN.  Lots of exciting things this year.
