Engagement photos

Yesterday I got to take my first engagement pictures!  I was so nervous for it because I had never done it before but i think it went really well.  I was also nervous because I didn't know the people so it was  like a real session.  Engaged people hold still much better than 1-year-olds and 3-year-olds.  I found this great spot I had been scoping out for a while and I am glad I finally got a chance to use it.  It was also the perfect opportunity for me to use my new lens.  I used the Christmas money I got to buy an awesome new lens.  It is mostly just for portraits  and it takes a little getting use to because it doesn't zoom in our out.  I have to do a lot of walking closer and farther away.  All in all I so far love love love my lens even though it cost more than many digital cameras do.

I think Brittany and Seth did a great job which made my job easier.  I have about 30 pictures that I think turned out well but I just will post my absolute favs on here.  Feel free to give me lots of feedback on the pictures.  I am still learning and could use any help I can get.  And don't forget that I still need more people to let me take their pictures so let me know if you're up for it.
