Meet Nak 9

For the last few days I’ve been teasing with folks about the stork delivering something. Well, today…the “brown stork” arrived with a beautiful bundle for me. The brown stork is none other than the UPS man.

At the end of 2008 I was contacted and hired to do a wedding in early June. The wedding is going to be in a church and it got me thinking about maybe needing a lens that allowed more light in and getting a better camera and using my d40x as the backup.

Jen mentioned Wolf of Enigma3Photography(  had a D90 so i reached out to him and we talked about the diffrent aspects of the camera and what he loved about it. I told Jen what Wolf said and since she was needing a second body, she decided to get the D90 as well. Check out her pics of her new baby on her blog,

I got a really good deal for this camera and I couldn’t pass it up. Then, someone blessed me with a 50mm 1.4 lens. God is so good. I couldn’t believe it when they gave it to me. I have been wanting this lens for a very long time. God truly is good. Here are some unedited pics from my new “baby”. I still have to figure out focus points and what not…but don’t worry, I will.
