Finagle A Foto #12: Anything Goes

I'm back and I'm ready to Finagle some Fotos!! While I was away, Melanie and Marilyn carried on with the Finagle a Foto Challenges--I hope you joined them because it looked like they had a great time! 

The challenge for this week is *Anything Goes*

Before we get into the challenge, we have a guest host.  Please help us welcome Kelly-Marie from Our Footprints on The World!!

Name: Kelly-Marie
Blog name: Our Footprints On The World

Describe yourself in three words:  
Laid-back (Is that one word .. I guess so), trustworthy and friendly.

What does photography mean to you: 
 I feel like all though school and things I have never picked up a hobby that I am good at or have enjoyed for more then a week. Then my little guy was born and I just couldn't help taking pictures of everything he did (not that he did a lot when he was first born). Then my sister came along with her fancy camera and took one picture of him which looked so awesome and it was then I knew I wanted a DSLR myself. Since then my love for photography grows more and more as I learn new tricks. For me I just love capturing my little guy.  

What are you working w/ {camera, lens's, fav editing tools, accessories}:  
I have a Nikon D3100 with a 50-200mm lens.
To organise and do some basic editing I use a free, yes FREE! programme called Photoscape. Then If I want some more fancy editing or text then I use things like Piccy.com.
What are a few items on your photography gear wish list:  
My poor hubby is always getting told what new lenses I want to get. I think my next buy will be a 50mm prime lens to get those sharp shots.
What is your most FAVorite photograph you've ever taken, & why:
Where would you like your photography journey to be in  a year:

What is your most FAVorite photograph you've ever taken, & why:  
Ok I have a few and yes they are all of Josh, he's my baby what can I say :D
Two of them really capture his eyes beautifully and the other is just the most cutest face ever.

Where would you like your photography journey to be in a year:  
Well I actually have a few people lined up wanting small photo sessions with me, so hopefully one day I would love to create a small photo business specailising in children's photography. With maybe an extra little one on the way in our little family to photograph ;)

So glad you to have you as a co-host this week, Kelly-Marie!!
