    I thought I would introduce myself with a photo post! :) I am new to Chazhound and joined because I am getting a 7 and a half week old border collie pup on Monday. I posted some pictures of him awhile back in the other pictures forum, but someone told me to check out this forum so I thought I would post a few of my own work.

    I'm actually a professional children and family photographer and I operate with one business out of Connecticut and another out of Austin, TX- where I now live permanently. Family photography isn't only my livelihood but it's my passion. I'm pretty lucky to get to say that and I definitely feel blessed everyday. I genuinely love what I shoot. I wish I still got out there and did landscapes and other genres like I used to, but sometimes at the end of the long work day the last thing you want to do is pick up a camera. Hopefully soon though! Now that I live in Texas I'd like to do some sunset field work.

    I shoot with a Canon 5d and 85 1.2 about 95% of the time, shoot in jpeg, and edit in photoshop exclusively.

    Nice to meet everyone! Some great work here! Here is some of mine:

    Those are just some recent favorites :) Sorry for the watermarks- I just take everything from my blog and I have to watermark things on my blog to protect my clients and also to protect myself from right-click-saving clients- haha.

    **Also, my color seems to veryyyyy off on here which is strange because everything is srgb. Not sure why everything is looking so dull- sorry about that! The color looks better on my blog at Erin Bell Photography Blog Connecticut Children’s Photographer - Just realized everything just looks back in firefox.

    Nice meeting everyone!

    Very amazing photos! You have a good eye for capturing that perfect shot with the different angles.

    Beautiful shots! I really love the last two photos you've posted here. :) The smile of that little girl just lights everything up.

    Thanks guys! It's so fun to have my own little puppy to photograph now- he's my favorite new subject. I put some picturs of him in the other picture forum.

    Thanks for comments! I'm glad to join in.
