What's everyone up to?

The board has been so quiet.  I haven't done much photography lately, not even pics of LO.  I'm busy with my other hobbies at the moment, and want to finish LO's first year baby book before he turns two.  Can't wait to pick up the camera again and do some casual and serious photographing though.


What are you ladies up to?

This forum has been very slow recently - must be the holidays coming up :)
I've been busy getting pregnant!!! Just found out last week! And sadly I haven't picked up my camera in a couple of weeks. So needless to say life is about to get really busy! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving :)

Congrats Andrea!! 


I have barely been on PW lately because of the malware issues, I cannot risk it at work anymore!!  Allie & I shot a wedding on 11/11 and that went pretty well.  Yesterday Allie took mine & DH's X-mas card pics...man I hate being in front of the camera now LOL!!  I am taking my sister's X-mas card pics/gender reveal pics next week & soon I will take Allie's maternity pics...but not much else going on photography wise.

Good to see some responses finally!  Last weekend I rented a huge 400mm f2.8 lens, went down to Monterey Bay and took a bunch of sea otters photos.  I'll upload them in a few days.  That lens is hefty, 8+ lbs!  I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to manage it, according to many forum discussions. But I managed to handhold it half of the time during the 2-hour boat ride.  Must be my mommy muscles working!


andrea, congrats!!! It's so exciting!  I was too tired during most of my pregnancy to pick up the camera.  But I'm glad that I pushed myself and did a photography baby moon with DH during the 2nd trimester.  We took 2 cameras and a tripod to Utah and did some hiking and landscape photography, because I knew I wouldn't be able to do that for many years to come. Once you feel your energy returns in the 2nd trimester, you should definitely go outdoors use the camera as much as you can!


plum, can't watit to see your upload some photos.  I'm still not sure what we're doing for the xmas card.  I'll probably just do LO with santa without us.  I hate to be in the front of the camera too.

Mel - I can't wait to see all your pics! I just drool over yours and Allie's - makes me so jealous! :)


And thank you ladies - I am completely over the moon! And completely and utterly EXHAUSTED! I'm only 5 weeks but daaaaaaaaaaang I have zero energy! Hopefully I pick up my camera in the 2nd trimester and play around with it some more

I've been taking tons of classes now that I have the camera I wanted, I guess I really have to learn to use it :D  Groupon had some great deals and I took advantage.  Now I just have to start going crazy with the picture taking :)

I've been busy making Christmas gifts and spending some quality time with my very pregnant daughter.  I will be taking lots of pics in the hospital in the next few weeks.
