Carlsbad Is... portraits

This year I was able to rent a lens that I've been coveting. Yes, sinfully coveting :) But the next best thing to owning a lens is the ability to rent it! Carlsbad has always provided opportunities to get lots of pictures of the kids and they are able to do something there that they haven't been able to do for a couple months. PLAY OUTSIDE :) And well this photographer has missed taking pictures under the sun! So here are some hang-er-upers from this year trip:

Doesn't she wear this rad hat well?

Ok so I probably won't hang this one up but it captures a side of trevor that makes me laugh :)

Of course I couldn't resist this little guy who's almost 1 & walking :) Owen brought us lots of joy on this vacation!

Awww these are great. What did you get to rent? I love renting lenses....then when the time comes you really know what you want to spend your money on.

Thank Bethany :) I'm always so inspired by your work!
I rented the AF-S 50mm 1.4 I have a 50mm 1.8 but it doesn't auto focus with my d40... making it hard with kids. Getting time to upgrade my camera or buy that 50mm that will auto focus!
