What's in my bag!
I LOVE GEAR!! It inspire me to be the best that I can be and my gear always shows up for me when I need it to perform miracles - like shooting at 8,000 ISO and focusing in the dark - births are amazing like this! This is why investing in professional equipment is so important to me. I love that I know my cameras like the back of my hand, and that my lenses feel right at home in the palm of my hand. I am a canon prime girl all the way, and I love to get my gear dirty - on the beach, in the ocean, while it's raining? I'm game! I have A LOT of gear, but these are my workhorses and usually accompany me to every shoot!

Canon EOS 5D Mark iii
This is my primary camera body. I LOVE it. The main advantages for me are it's intuitiveness, the grid option looking through the lens, the 42 cross hair focal points, and the insanely high ISO capabilities.
Canon EOS 6D
This is my back-up body that accompanies me to every session, for the just in case moments. My husband also uses a 6D and loves it! It's nice and light and does about 85% of what my 5D does.
Canon EOS 1-V
My mom, Orna, was a film photographer and I grew up watching her learn and grow as an artist. I recently picked up film again, and I'm enjoying every minute of it.
Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM
This lens becomes invaluable in a tight birthing space. I'm starting to incorporate in more into my daily shooting as well, and I am loving it. It's tack sharp and so much fun to use!
Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM
This is my most used lens for newborn sessions and at births - I love this focal length for all things documentary. It allows me to show you the nitty gritty, nice and close.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM
This is my least used lens. I used to use it every day, but have found myself called less and less to the 50mm focal length. Beautiful lens though.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM
If I had to choose one lens.. It would be a tough call between this and my 35mm. I use this for all of my portrait work and at births constantly! It allows me to really isolate my subject without being close to them.
