What’s In My Bag?


So often, people want to know what I am shooting with.  Lucky for your I have finally gotten around to sharing with the world – what’s in my bag!

  1. I have two camera bodies, so that in the event of a mis-hap the shooting goes on, or for event photography where I am shooting in a fast paced mode and I am not wanting to stop to swap lenses and miss a key moment.  My main camera is the 5d Mark iii and my back up baby, the one I began my business with is a 5d Mark ii.

  2. My favorite lens, albeit heavy as anything is my Canon 70-200.

  3. Coming in at a close second is my Canon 24-70.  This lens is incredible versatile and much easier to take with me any & everyday.

  4. For all the little details of a newborn shoot or capturing small details while traveling or capturing food shots I’ll swap out for my beloved Canon 50 mm macro lens.

  5. For the most fun of all though, I like to play with my Lensbabies!  I use both my Sweet35 and Edge80 in conjunction with my Composer Pro to create funky & out of the box captures.

I am squeezing all of this and so much more (not pictured) into my LowePro backpack, sometimes it’s so heavy I have a hard time staying upright!

Not pictured above:

  1. My puppy dog Shutter Hugger, a lifesaver with the little ones sometimes –>

  2. 40 mm 2.8 for when I want to go really light

  3. Tamron 19-35 mm 3.5-4.5

  4. Numerous SanDisk Extreme Pro CF cards

  5. Speedlites 320ex & 430ex

  6. REFLECTORS!!!

  7. Lastly, quality clamps to hold my reflectors in place – while I may want to I can’t always travel with an assistant in tow.

Stay tuned to see what’s on my wish list!
