Portraits - test shots

A new-to-me hardlyeverused "portrait" lens has made its way into our home and onto my camera. {Insert smiley face here.}

I've only been able to take some test shots but I'm really happy with what I can now do. I knew I needed another lens but I wasn't quite sure what to get. Now that I know what I was missing out on, there's no stopping me. So, yes, I will continue to be the mommy with "the" camera who annoys everyone with my picture taking.

Nice.. you will absolutely love having a prime lens! The 85/1.8 is a good choice for portraits :)

Nice! Right now I just have the standard lens on my camera. I'm thinking a portrait is what I need next!
