Hi! Im a HUGE picture person, I love photography and wish that I had more time to take classes, etc-- For Christmas last year my husband got me a Canon G6 (pictured below)
*the camera accepts the same lens converters as the G3 and G5, in conjunction with a new, optional lens adapter.
I have to say I LOOOOVE it!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! My main subject is our 2 year old mastiff and now we're having our first baby in March. I would love to get advice on what kind of lenses you all think I would benefit from the most? I want to ask for a few for Christmas and get some before the baby is here. I have never taken any photo classes so I am not really up & up on all the lingo, so forgive me for all the questions I will be asking.
If you wouldn't mind Id love to hear what lenses you recommend and WHY...
Great shots by the way, your dog is adorable! I have always wanted a mastiff. Also Congrats on your expected little one. If you ever have anymore questions feel free to ask. I can't wait to see more photos either!! =)

Aw what an adorable "big guy". I love big ol gentle giants.
Unfortunately though, I dont know that canon series...so I dont really know what your lens options would be. But you certainly are doing the right thing to plan ahead....with a babe on the way, you've got a lot of picture taking in your future!!!
I would say the good ol' standby of a 50mm 1.8 lens... it's cheap, but a great one for portraits. The 1.8 lets you get sharp faces but the background is sufficiently blurred.
I like telephoto lenses for portrait as well (not that I am a portrait shooter, I am just getting into it now that my son is here!) but something in the 180mm - 200mm range. It lets you get close, and keeps the background from being too noticeable.
Unfortunately that model camera does not have interchangable lenses. You can get adaptors (like a wide angle or macro), but not an actual different lens like a 50mm. For interchangable lenses you would need an SLR camera. The G series is a great camera and you're getting fantastic shots from it already!

I'm not much help here since I don't know much about that camera other than it is a good one. Looks like you are doing a great job with it already. Any lens you can get that has 2.0 aperture and below will be a good portrait lens.
