Lensbaby Love – July 2013

I was lucky enough to head to NYC with my sister, brother-in-law, and little brother this past month. My parents who win “Grandparents of the Year” stayed behind with the 7 grandkids ages – 6, 5, 4, 3, and three 1 year olds.

I think I was so excited to be anywhere without my kids that I kept forgetting to take pictures. I know, that doesn’t make any sense. Here are a few I captured. My Lensbaby Composer Pro Sweet Optic 35mm is really fun for street photography.

Continue to be inspired and follow our small group of photographers. Check out Sharon Kain Photography next.





And just for fun check out these yummy mini cupcakes (taken with my 35mm 1.4)


AND one more to give you a good laugh and show you what good sports my parents are. They sent us this picture while we were away and said the kids had taken Papa hostage.

    Courtney, Wow!! First, what a fabulous trip and you do have some awesome parents!!! On to the images, I love these. I haven’t tried using my Sweet 35 for street images so I truly inspired by what you captured!! I particularly like how the blur in the first two shots add to the “busy” feeling of NYC!!

    Courtney! These are awesome! Reminds me of our trip to NYC! I really love the second one. The leading line then the blurred people walking. They add to the image, but in a way that only the lensbaby could do. :) Nice job this month!

    Love how the lensbaby brings out the motion in these! My favorite is the first with the taxi!!! Hope you had a fabulous time in NYC!
