Sisters! Family Portraits in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska

This was my first shoot of this sort! A classmate asked me to take some fun photos of her and her two sisters, as kind of a gift to their parents for Christmas. Fun! We went to the Haymarket and train station in Lincoln and wandered around the area a bit before exploring the Creamery building.  The weather was very warm (yay!) and the snow was melting, so I wore my rubber rain boots so I could sludge around in the muddy slop without worrying about my feet.

My favorite lens, a Tamron 17-55, has been having some issues, and long story short, I've been NOT using the zoom at all.  So while I shop for something new, I just lock it in position and use it like a prime. :) It's easy to rely on a zoom (even when it's just a little one), but I do it's better to learn how not to rely on it. 

Enough blabbing.  Here are some of my favorites from last week's shoot! 

Thanks for reading and looking! Have a very merry Christmas!
