Hi Gina, welcome to the forum. Don't be tempted to try to run before you can walk. Have a good play with the camera and kit lens, then you'll start to find out for yourself what other lenses you might want to try. Good luck!
Best advice so far IMO.
Welcome to the forums.
Too many people wander in, buy a camera and more than one lens and then sell it because their shots aren't as good as people that have been shooting a lot longer - they can't figure out why because it's the same lenses that were recommended to them.
Stick with the kit lens for now, there's nothing wrong with it. Maybe later on add a bit more reach and a prime, but above all, enjoy what you do. In the meantime, unless you're going to be walking around taking snapshots, look into a reasonable tripod. I'd put that way ahead of more lenses.
