Maybe....

Hmmm...James and I went to the camera store (my favorite place) yesterday to take a look at this....the Nikon D200....I love it....=)

I love my camera that I have now, but I am ready for an upgrade...The flash on my camera has been "messed up" since before Christmas...(not where it affects my photos, but just enough where it annoys me) The fact that I am shooting two weddings this summer, made me want to consider upgrading....Photographers usually have back up cameras, and that is what I want to do...Get the new one...and then have my old one worked on, so I will have a back-up...Sounds like a great plan to me =) Anyway, for a lack of anything major going on this morning...the camera is what is on my mind....We will see if it will fit into our budget....FPU friends...=)

I think you should defnitely get the new one. Not that I have a vote in your budget or anything. I think you should get the new camera and come and take some pictures of me and my family that we can hang up in our new house! It would give you a chance to try out the new camera and us some stuff to hang on our bare walls.

Just a thought.

Ooooh, that is my next camera, I believe. Either that or the D300 that just came out (by the time I am ready to buy it will have come down in price, I hope). I have the D50 and have never loved a camera more. They just keep adding new ones each year to make us want to upgrade :). Maybe you will be surprised for Mother's Day?!

I think you should get it...You both work, and it's for your buisness...MAKE IT FIT IN THE BUDGET! It's not like it won't make it's money back ;) We have 2 Nikon's which we love, but I have been looking @ the D300 as well, it's super nice!!!! Im just waiting on price to come down as well! Mine cetainly won't make money!!! but I also Love the Cannon Rebel like Nicole has...so Im torn...The Rebel Nicole can show me how to use, that's the plus to that camera...BUT BUY IT! YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE!!!!

I can relate...I want the Canon 40 D or 5D! Duffer won't let me upgrade until I start making some money from it and you know how I feel about that.

Bethanne....I would love to help you get some pictures to hang on your walls of your new house...Just let me know when!!! =)

Allison...I love my Nikon..It is probably the Best camera I have ever owned...We have had other brands...but this one is the BEST!! to me =) We talked extensively with the guy at the camera store, and he told us the pros and cons between the 200 and the 300...and the differences are NOT worth the difference in price...to me...He is a local wedding photographer in the area...and he said he uses a 200 all the time...

Nicole...If you want to attempt making money from photography...Go for it...It is the BEST thing I have ever done...I have met so many wonderful people, that have become friends to me, and I just can't believe I can get paid for doing what I LOVE TO DO!!! and have since I was a teenager!! =)Get over your shyness...and "shoot"...Love ya...C U tomorrow at tball....

Well, Cassie it's a little hard to take pictures if you can't stay out of the bathroom from a case of nervousness!! HA HA I am just not a people person...I would rather do the behind the scenes stuff...maybe I can think of something to start making in PhotoShop or web design or something...anything that I could do to be able to quit my job would be FANTASTIC!!!
