I'm often asked what I shoot with, whats in my camera bag, what did I use to get a specific shot, etc. I thought it would be helpful to share what I generally keep in my camera bag!
First, my bag!
My amazing boyfriend messaged my best photographer friend, Jess, over at Jessica Lynch Photography and asked her what bags I had been eyeing. He got me a gift card for my birthday for the bag I loved from The House Of Flynn; a beautiful, brown, mini-evermore bag!
Isn't it delicious?! Mine was "Bohemian Brown" so it looks a little different, but they don't sell that one anymore. They are so convenient! It has so much storage and is super light weight. If you've been wondering which bag to get for yourself, this is the one!
I only shoot with prime lenses. I have a few kit lenses from my first camera but I don't ever use them. I've actually passed them down to my 3.5 year old and she has started learning! Her photos are pretty decent! We've printed quite a few and they are hanging in her room. Here is one she took of her little sister:
My 35mm f/1.4 is my baby. I love the Sigma brand, ART series. It never leaves my camera! I love the wide angle - the wider the better for me! Its wide enough for small rooms during in-home sessions and it captures a beautiful background when shooting outdoors.
Another favorite lens of mine is the Canon 50mm f/1.8. This lens is nicknamed the "nifty fifty" and is very versatile. Its affordable, so its widely used but new photographers; and its consistent in quality, so it is well loved by experienced photographers. Its a great lens!
One of these...

At least two of these...
A few of these...
...and a million of these...
I hope that's helpful! It takes a lot more than gear to get the right shots so once you have everything you need, practice, practice, practice. As always, I'm here to help if you need me! Xo
Happy shopping, friends!!
