I've been consumed with projects outside of photography as of late. I have so many thoughts and ideas of how I want to expand and grow but it's all baby steps for now. I knew when I added my new lens (Nikon 105mm f/2.8) to my collection that it wasn't an everyday lens but last month, I was a little frustrated that I hadn't even had a chance to really use it.

One weekend, Rich brought the girls outside for a bit and I headed out with my new lens. I quickly realized that it was too cold for my liking and ended up firing off shots that I could have taken with other lenses.

And then a few weeks later, I took pictures of my niece's newborn twins. That's what this lens is for.

So here's my super quick review so far:

Cons: The price. It's heavy. It sometimes hunts for focus in low light.

Pros: I shouldn't ever have to replace it (it's an investment). It is SHARP.

And here's Baby S holding her Daddy's wedding ring.


It looks like I'll be able to attend the girls' gymnastics class in a few weeks. I don't have a fast zoom so I'll have to test it out there (through the dirty windows - haha) because that's another reason why I wanted that particular lens.

Love the wedding ring shot too! The pictures are perfect.

Thank you! I wanted to use the ring to show how small her hand was. That wasn't exactly how I wanted it but getting a baby to cooperate isn't the easiest.
