My most important Item to bring on a daily basis:

I mean, seriously- you just never know when the perfect moment will be right in front of you. I mean, I know we all have camera phones, but camera phones just aren't the same as an actual camera.

At the beginning of 2011 I spoiled myself with a starter "Professional" camera-The Cannon Rebel. There are so many features, options, and settings that she is intact with. Her speed is fast
allowing for multiple shots at the same time. Talking about getting the "Picture Perfect Moment."

If you to are a Picture -Whore like myself, I would absolutely recommend this starter camera for you. Now that I am starting to get the hang of certain angles, lighting, and creativity I will most likely expand to something larger. However, for a new photo-guru on the market, this camera is most certainly for you.

The prices and models will vary depending on the year that you pick up, and your place of purchase. They average from $500-$900.00.

Check out some of the shots that I got this last year:

I believe it is all about being at the right place at the right time <3 God has so much beauty in the world for us, why not capture it!

Kristin LAS VEGAS Hicks

In honor of Vegas Day [well.......Mine, Elena, Charlene, and Amibeth's Vegas Day] I decided to pay a tribute to a dear friend of mine-- Las Vegas! Isn't she beautiful?

The more I think about all of the fun times we've had, the more I cannot wait to be reconnected. Vegas has been for me through thick and THIN! She is a GEM to say the least, no other can compare [oh, besides the boyfriend]. Through the:
  • Heartbreaks
  • Celebrations
  • Good Friends
  • Bouncers [Ronnie]
  • Ball tickling [WOW-get your mind out of the gutter, its not what you think!!]
  • Pool Parties
  • Countless individuals we've met, and names we've forgotten
  • Michael Mayer
  • Champagne Brunch
  • Baby Angels
  • Trop
  • Bachlorette Parties
....and this is only the beginning of our relationship. I love you Vegas, cheers to many more memories that you and my friends will have.
