My Birthday Gift - Nikon D3200!

I asked my husband for a Nikon some time last year in hopes that he'd get it for me for Christmas! After I told him how much it cost he laughed, "for a camera?"

"Yes, babe, it'd be an investment...for the family!"

Fast forward to my birthday on Wednesday and off we went to get my Nikon D3200! Here are some of the photos I took with this amazing camera (if you follow me on Instagram you've seen them already)! I have so much to learn about how to use it properly and how to take good quality photos, in general, and I am just SO eager to learn!

So here we go! I chose not to edit (i.e. adjust contrast, use filters, etc.) these photos at all except to add the watermark so that you can see just how incredible this camera really is

Ah, the clarity:

Busy Bee:

I told Maddie I was going outside to take a picture of her and she gave me this:

Then this (yuck):

Then finally, this:

Because she loves this:

 And I'll leave you with this:


Special thanks to an incredible man who knows how to keep his lady happy no matter the cost!
Love, love, LOVE you, babe!!!

  1. WOWW!!! No editing? That camera is amazing!! And the subject is even more that sweet face!

    1. Thanks, Ashley! And yes, absolutely no editing! It's incredible! I did read the manuals cover to cover and played around with it taking nearly 1000 shots the first day so my obsession could have something to do with it!

  2. The pictures are fabulous and your daughter is a cutie. Happy belated birthday!

  3. The result is so precious , mwwuah!

  4. So cool!
    I have this bet going on with my boyfriend.
    If I lose 5kg by my birthday I'm getting a Nikon D3200 too! :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I read and cherish each and every one and do my very best to respond to all in a timely manner.
