My Go To Gear For Photography

Before I get started I just want to say that I am in no way an expert. I remember when I first started out and I felt like such a faux-tographer. I bought my first DSLR and started out photography as a hobby. When I started to receive inquiries I then decided it was time to up my game a little bit. Feeling like a photographer can be intimidating and takes a LONG time to fully understand each piece of equipment. Today I’m sharing with you what I pack in my bag for any go to photoshoot.

Here is the line up:

– 1 Camera I currently shoot with a Canon EOS 7D

– Lenses



Compact Flash Cards 32 GB Transcend

Tripod Albott 64 Inch Travel Tripod

Light Reflector 

Senior Changing Station Portable Pop Up Pod Dressing/Changing Tent

Sounds like a lot right? It is and I didn’t get it all overnight. It took me years to get this set up. Here is the thing, gear is super expensive and you might not have money to purchase a lot. Starting small and working your way up is what I always say when someone is looking to get in to photography. I honestly am not a fan of zoom lenses. I use them for details but that is about it. my favorites are the prime lenses and this is something I’m hoping to expand in the near future.

We all hear these lies that our gear defines us. There are those who take great iPhone photos right?

My Advice:

1. Know how to use your gear.

2. Educate yourself. This profession is constantly changing so you’ll want to make sure you are moving with it. A great inexpensive course for beginners would be All About Your DLSR and Intro to DSLR
