It seems like a popular thing in this industry to have a super cute camera bag. Well, I have two bags and they work really well for me, but neither are what I’d call “cute.” I have my backpack, a Lowepro, that I’ve had since I started shooting! It holds a ton and has the perfect amount of space for everything but my lenses. I keep my lenses in my Shootsac. People have always asked me if I like my Shootsac, and honestly? I LOVE it. It is light, caries the exact number of lenses I have/want, and it has a great removable flap that I can use as a pad if the ground is too wet or dirty for my clients. That leaves really no room, or need, for a cute bag.
I started thinking about traveling for fun. I hate bringing my big camera bags as a cary on, but hate putting my camera in my purse. I thought, “How great would it be to have a bag that looks like a purse, is light, has proper protection for my camera, and a place to put my purse junk?” Great. So I checked out Kelley Moore bags, but they are just a little too chunky for me! I looked at a few other brands, but then I found [ONA]. They make the classiest looking camera bags that look just like designer handbags! I was so excited to recieve this as a gift for my birthday and I can’t wait to take it on vacation!
