Hi Britt. Any good quality DSLR should give you decent pics. A camera is a tool and there are different tools for different jobs. Some cameras have more than others in the way of shooting options, depends on how much one is prepared to pay finally. I can tell you that I did lots of research before buying and I'm so glad I did, because I wouldn't change my camera for anything and love it to bits. Had it 4 years now and it's so dependable. I also use Sigma lenses with it and love the results, from high speed sport to macro.
What more could I ask?. Oh, I bought the Nikon D300. All the best.
