Test Title 1



{ wishlist } snapshots!

today's the day! w+i are leaving town around 5 & heading to atlanta. tomorrow morning bright and early we're flying to hawaii for 10 DAYS! we're so excited to see my sister and her sweet family and as a bonus to warm up a bit. it's way too cold/rainy in nashville this time of year. (can you believe we considered moving to boston!?!).

i really really hope to capture all of our adventures on camera this trip ... a second honeymoon of sorts (this time caught on camera!). so today i'm daydreaming of a photography upgrade (just in time for christmas *hint hint*):

{source: jo totes, nikon, abie straps + lil blue boo}

1 // how cute are the camera bags from jo totes? i'm especially gaga over the millie (however the question is - what color? teal, marigold or moss.) this is jo totes' smaller option - more for the novice photographer ... uh hmm ... me. it can fit your dslr camera with attached lens + an extra lens - and it still has room to double as a purse. yes, please! 

2 // i need a lens upgrade. i'm looking at the nikon 50mm f/1.8d af nikkor lens. this lens allows you to take pictures in lower light settings without your flash & is perfect for blurred backgrounds. 

3 // and how lovely are the camera straps from abie straps? i absolutely am smitted w/ the color me happy line in golden petals. of course, since w+i share a (his) camera ... maybe i should find something a little less pretty. but gah - love this! 

4 // and last but not least, i have set a goal to myself to take a photography class before we start having kids ... but there are so many things that i'd like to capture in the meantime! I WILL TAKE A SNAPSHOP CLASS in 2012. i absolutely love everything that ashley ann of under the sycamore touches. and am so thankful for all the helpful photography hints (along w/ fantastic tutorials and inspiration) that she posts on her blog. time to save up some $ and take her class

in the meantime, i'm taking darcy of my 3 boybarians' 31 days to a better photo challenge (from 2010). i've printed out the first 10 days for our trip. 

have you taken a photography class? any recommendations?
