Wishful Wednesday Series

Hello all! I've decided to start a new series called Wishful Wednesday. These are going to be little posts all about what I am currently wishing for. Now we know that I am all about not wishing for most things and more doing. However, we can't have everything. Unless you are the Chrisley family, then you can have whatever your little heart desires. Unfortunately, I was not born into that family. But man do they make for great television. For now, I'll go ahead and compile a list of things I'm pining for. Heck, maybe some amazing, fancy person will send me some of these wonderful gifts...a girl can dream right? I mean Mother's Day and my birthday are coming up...hint hint. Although not all of these lists are going to be made up of tangible objects, it's a good place to keep all of my wants in one place. Sorta like a very trimmed down Pinterest board. Without further ado, I give you my first Wishful Wednesday post!

So I have been practicing my photography skills (or lack thereof) more often. Today's Wishful Wednesday is all about the amazing products that I have been drooling over the past week. I have realized through tons of tutorials, blogs, videos, etc. that using the lens that came with my kit is basically only doing myself a disservice. Let me start by saying that photography is a crazy expensive "hobby" to get started in. But through lots of research, I've found that there are some more reasonable options that would still give me better results than what I have now. But this post is called wishful Wednesday, so what fun would it be if I didn't have an outrageous list? So here is my reasonable wish list followed by my I'm-completely-dreaming list.

 Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens    $399.00
A nifty fifty. I need you in my life first. All of the light you let in with your low aperture and your creamy pictures make me weak in the knees. I have read in multiple places that if photographers had to pick one lens to use it would be you.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens $349.00

A much improved zoom lens. You would make taking pictures of the kids playing such a breeze. I could be at a good distance so I don't interrupt the naturalness of the shot. Getting better shots of Carson playing softball would be great too.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens $599.00

Oh boy...a macro lens! Although I would probably list you as a want more than a need (even though all of these are wants), you would be so fun! I imagine close ups of baby feet, baby eyelashes and sleeping kids. Don't forget those awesome macro nature shots; worthy of a canvas.

Tamron Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical AF Lens $499.00

You sharp little lens you. Taking group shots without having to back up 100ft would be great. Not to mention your f/2.8 brings in a great deal of light. You're not a Canon lens, but you get wonderful reviews and I'd love to have you.

Now how in the world could I carry all of these happy little lenses? A Kelly Moore Bah duh.

Behold the Kelly Boy bag. I love the Caramel colored leather. So timeless.

Now I love my little Canon Rebel t4i don't get me wrong. But having this little mama would just make my heart burst.

The Mark III ($3,399.00). Probably the most common camera that I've found photographers have (or at least the ones that I follow). Some people even have two! Depending on how far these hobby of mine goes, I don't see this as a completely out of touch purchase.

Now for the dream sheet. No description necessary for these beauties. Note all of their sexy red lines. Basically the sexy red dress a la Jessica Rabbit. Yes that fits. These are my sexy little Jessica Rabbit lenses.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens $1,619.00

 Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens $1,599.00

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens $1,049.00

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens $2,299.00

What fun would the dream sheet be without this not-so-little mama? Sorry, I had to. After all this IS Wishful Wednesday!

That just happened

Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera $6,799.00

Completely ridiculous

Well there ya have it folks. My first Wishful Wednesday. There's nothing wrong with a little wishing. All of these things are far away from my grasp right now, but you know what they say. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

What are you wishing for?
