My Push Present

Well, her too. But I’m actually talking about the lens I used to take these pictures of my little chunk.

I’ve been working on my push present wish list since before I was even pregnant. A gift for having a baby?–I mean, besides the baby? Cool! I got the camera I was eyeballing for Christmas/my anniversary/ my birthday, so I made another request for this occasion. My husband got me (ok I got it for myself but let’s pretend its from him so it goes with the Push Present philosophy) a Canon 50mm f/1.8 II lens and I LOVE it!

We just got back in town and I tore it out of the box this morning, skipped the instructions and snapped away. As you can see, it makes an amateur like me look like a skilled photographer, and it was only $95!

So I did end up with a little sometin sometin besides my baby but it makes mommy happy, so everyone’s happy! Plus, grandma gets more pictures.

Whatcha think?

Jenn,

Girl you got skills, I am very impressed! Also, loving the photoshop skills on the one of her in the Tutu dress. Could J be any cuter???? Seriously! So I am off to NYC next week. Where did you stay again?

Looks like it was well worth $95. J is getting so big.

I love it!! The 50mm was the first lens I purchased and it is one of my favorites!!! My professional photographer friends tell me it is STILL one of their go-to lenses for portraits. Great push present! 🙂

WOW awesome pictures! She’s so beautiful!

Forget the lens, let’s talk about how beautiful that little chunk is!!

push presents are great! 1st time around i got an awesome coach bag, but this time around i’m not asking for anything since my due date is actually the due date my mom had when i was born, so my birthday is soon to follow

Wow, that lens is amazing. I honestly thought those were professionally done pics. They look great!
