This was one of the first purchases that I made after I left someone who did not treat me like I was a person. It was a liberating feeling, being able to buy something for myself after depriving myself of every single luxury for 4 years because this person made me feel like I didn't have the right to get myself anything while getting everything for himself.
This camera has been with me for the last 6 years and it has captured every single moment of my journey into being a single mother. It has been there to capture the moments of friendships formed, friendships broken, love born and love lost, as well as hits and misses with being a Mom and the small accomplishments I have being a Mom and Dad to my son.
This camera is also the same tool that I use for my blogging and it has helped me evolve into a better food photographer. It's been what I use to take photos of events and its also what I use to document the moments that my blog has blessed me with.
Thank you to my old Canon Ixus. We had a really good run.
