I am going to share with you my current obsession……..because I am a Denver Portrait Photographer it should not surprise you that it is A LENS!
A shiny beautiful lens. That costs around $2000! Enter the Canon 35mm 1.4L II. And before you ask, no I am not being paid to praise Canon and their products. I currently own and treasure the first version of this workhorse but as soon as the new one came out, I knew I needed it. Like my life depended on it, everything would come to a halt if I did not have it. Crazy right? Yep but in my head, this lens MAY be what sets me apart from everyone else in my field (quite ridiculous yes, I am well aware). But I mean everyone knows a Denver portrait photographer right? Maybe just maybe THIS would give me an edge.
Nevermind my amazing ability to freeze time and tell my client’s story or my amazing client experiences . I knew if I did not get this lens immediately it would be the end. I can’t be the only one out there who has something that they are CRAZY obsessed with right? Shoes, new hair products, a new shade of lip gloss….come on fess up! It will make me feel a little better.
HAHA! We have all done that right? Been extra nice to our significant other, maybe cooked their favorite meal or picked up their dry cleaning. All in an attempt to butter them up so they will be more likely to let you have whatever it is you have your eye on.
So I am still waiting……my begging and pleading and buttering up my husband did me no good. BOOO. Stay tuned to find out if he ever lets me get my lens. Meanwhile, if you or someone you know is in the market for an amazing Denver Portrait Photographer, I would be thrilled to tell your story (I promise it will be amazing…..even if I don’t have my dream lens to shoot with). Reach out to me here. Let’s make some memories!
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
