Woohoo, Karen! That is so great! I am so excited for you! :)


How exciting. Have fun with it.

That's awesome. I love road trips to buy things. :) I live in Boston and bought a Honda Civic in Albany, NY once.


YAYAYAYA!!! Can't wait to see your first shots from your new beauty.




LOVE new toys!! I love how you documented getting a new one too! I have a love/hate relationship with my D800. I really miss my D700 a lot.


You of all people deserve a new camera! So excited for you! I love how the box is in almost every single photo!

Kathy R

Yay! Such happy news! I'm sooooo excited for you!

Jennifer S

Eeeeek!!!! So exciting and I can not wait to hear all about it. Maybe some video too.,.,.,

Juli P

Whew! I was a little worried when I read the intro that you were going to pull a fast one and go all Canon on us!
I can't wait to see what you think of this new body.... it looks pretty big, almost as big as Annie's head (not that she has a big head, just just that it is a big(ger) body!


Congrats on the new baby!!


EEEEEEEEKKKK!!!!! I am beaming ear to ear as I can hear you and visualize your expression while yelling "mommas gettin' a new camera!!!" I miss you! Congratulations!


I am sooooo excited for you!! And fantastic that it turned into a road trip, made for better pics! :D :D :D


YAY!!!!! Mama got a new camera!!! So excited for you!!

Lisa A

Stacey from the Texas Panhandle

WoOOoooHOOOOoooOOOOOHOOOoooooOOO! Congratulations Karen!!! You deserve it! Christmas in July!!


My first thought was Christmas in July...and as I went to type it...Stacey had the same thoughts as I I will say.....HOORAY! So excited for you and will be waiting to hear about how you love this new workhorse. Giddy-up!


SOOOOO exciting!!! And I love all the shots. Have fun playing with your new "baby"!

Laurel C

How exciting! I'm SO happy for you! Have fun getting acquainted with it.


Love the visual of your driving to get your camera. So excited for you but bummed that you did not jump back to Canon.


Well HOT DANG summer in the city! (My mom always used to say that? She was cray cray but she made me laugh my arse off!) I'm so excited to see the awesome photos you share!!!!

By the way, I went to Best Buy not long ago and was looking at the 70D aaaand pricing the Mark 5 D III and the sales guy told me THAT camera was only for professionals. Ahem. I asked him if he knew anything about the features on the Mark 5D and he said no, he wasn't really familiar with photography, so I recommended your class to him. :)


you go girl!


yeah! Can't WAIT to hear the reviews (particularly D700 vs D810 and is it worth the upgrade for just regular ol' folks...!) Thanks!


What a fun road trip that would have been! Love your spontaneity, love your spirit, love your cute kids! Yay for a new camera!


Happy Happy day!! Congrats Karen!!!


Awesome!!! You paint a beautiful picture for GOING to buy something that makes the heart happy. I don't think receiving a box from an online purchase would have had the same zing. Congrats!

Rachel Millington

How awesome! I can't wait to see your shots with the new camera!


How awesome!!!! Congrats! Can't wait to see what you think.


Yay for you! I have been saving to upgrade, but I think my camera died last week and I will have to replace it before I am able to upgrade. It has been a sad week without my friend to keep me company! Pitiful, high??


How awesome is that!!!! Have fun with your new camera. :) Coincidentally, I have a new one too.. I now have the D7100. A guy at my hubby's work tried talking me into a full frame. I didn't do it, obviously.

Jennifer Lovelady

so happy for you :-) eek!! I am totally using this blog post to send to my hubby so perhaps I can pawn off my D90 to my hubby and then can say "mamma's getting a new camera!!" :-) lol can't wait to read your followups about it.

Gena - TX

:) So excited for you! I'd like a new camera but haven't been able to justify it because the current one still "works". Maybe I can convince myself with the technology thing! ;)

Anna from RI

Fist pump… and of course, hugs! Enjoy!
