I really love having a neighbor who loves photography as much as me. It’s great having a “real life” photography friend! Her name is Susan and she is one of the kindest, most giving people I’ve met. She came by the evening before Christmas Eve to show me the Canon 24-70L lens she rented for 10 days. I was excited just to see it in person, but she insisted that I keep it for all of Christmas Eve since she didn’t really need it until Christmas Day. Don’t you wish Susan was your neighbor?!! You can visit her blog here.
So my shots from Christmas Eve were taken with this awesome lens. It was nice to be able to get more of the scene. I’m not sold on buying it because of the cost, but I sure had fun with it! Here are the boys opening one gift before we headed out to visit family. I took these at 25mm, but I did crop in a little when I edited.
We visited G’s parents and went to a Christmas Eve service at their church. Then we stopped by my parents’ house for a little while.
See how you can get so much of the room at 24mm.
My mom made us homemade vanilla shakes. Alec grabbed my camera and took a few of me enjoying mine zoomed in at 70mm.
And then on Christmas Day, I was back to using my 50mm 1.4. (in bad lighting)
I hope everyone liked their gifts as much as Maisy!
