Dan the Man

Is a great photographer! And lucky for me, mine is my hubby. Without him, my blog would be a lot less colorful. I know taking blog pics is not at the top of his list, but he does it, with a smile (most times). Happy wife, happy life, right? Giving Dad a shout-out too, for being my  stand-in photog when Dan’s not around. Aren’t dad’s just the bee’s knees?! I know many bloggers out there are in the same boat. So let’s give a shout-out to our boyfriends/husbands/dads/brothers/guy friends who put up with our blogging shenanigans. Thank you, guys, you are totes the bestest! #thankyou

    This is a great post!! I couldn’t do my blog without my bf, that’s for sure. He complains sometimes but man is he a good sport. I always trade him photo time for things like laundry haha! I LOVE the Broquet, what a fantastic idea. Will be using this as a thank you for all kinds of things! Question – what kind of lens are you using on your camera here? Is it a 50mm?

    Happy Weds!

      I love the bartering system you’ve got going on! And yes, it’s a 50mm 1.4 lens!

    Broquet? That is pretty clever! I am always looking for new gift ideas for my boyfriend. (seriously men are so difficult to shop for!) He definitely puts up with my shenanigans, especially being my male model for my shop!

      I use a Canon 6D and most pictures are taken with a 50mm lense.

      They do! In case you didn’t see my hubby’s response, it’s a Canon 6D and most pictures are taken with a 50mm lense.

        Just in case you We’re confused by the first two responses to this, there actually isn’t an “e” at the end of the word “lens”.

          Just in case you were confused by the third comment, the sentence should have read “were” and not “we’re”.
