We’re almost half way through October, and I’m proud to say that so far this month, every single #fmsphotoaday post was shot/edited solely with my iPhone! Sending thanks again, to Fat Mum Slim for keeping up with the challenge lists … Continue reading
It’s the last day of September, and I couldn’t be more proud of myself. I’ve officially completed the ENTIRE month of #fmsphotoaday prompts (via Fat Mum Slim)! Over the month I’ve challenged myself more to use my iPhone (instead of … Continue reading
Three weeks in, and I’m still hanging on! I WILL complete an ENTIRE month of #fmsphotoaday prompts (via Fat Mum Slim)! Now the question remains: challenge myself to another month? Or try a different set of lists? Maybe Clickin Moms … Continue reading
Now that the BC Teachers strike is finally over, school is back in session!
My little Duders are growing up so fast! I’m glad that I started this tradition of First Day of School pictures against our front door. It makes for a fun/easy comparison as the years go by.
First up, both my boys. Dek’s first day of Grade One, and E’s first day of Preschool.
And here’s the year-by-year, side-by-side comparison of Dek.
I’m so glad I’m forcing myself to do this. It’s fun, pushing myself to be creative, even if it is “just” with my iPhone. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you need a big/fancy camera in order to make … Continue reading
It’s still early in the month, so don’t hold me to it, but I’m going to attempt to complete an entire month of #fmsphotoaday prompts (via Fat Mum Slim). So far, so good. Despite the fact that I’m a full-time … Continue reading
If you’d asked me at the start of 2014 if I’d be shooting any weddings this year, I would’ve said “No. I don’t do weddings any more. Just newborns.”
I was wrong. When my Dad mentioned that his friends daughter was getting married and he wanted me to shoot the wedding with him, how could I say no? A chance to work beside the person who is the reason I fell in love with photography to begin with… who wouldn’t take it!?
So, on a beautiful, sunshiney Saturday afternoon, my Dad picked me up in the hotrod, and we drove to Shawnigan Lake for Chrissie & Jay’s wedding.
I sent a super-quick sneak-peek to the new Mrs yesterday, and will likely do a full blog post in a few weeks. Her sneak peek included this image of their wedding rings. I love the simplicity and beauty that a macro lens can capture! Who needs fancy props when the details themselves are this perfect?
You might be thinking that it’s silly for me to be thinking of Christmas in July. And you might be right. But here’s the thing… I don’t care! I love Christmas. Even in July! I’ve already started working on the Duders wish lists with them, and I’ve already started my shopping.
This year is going to be even better than last year. The boys are both at such great ages to really revel in the magic of the holiday. And hopefully, this year, they’re at great ages to cooperate for portraits! TOGETHER. Last year was a bust. The year before was a bust… you get the idea. They’re both pretty good at individual portraits, but trying to get them together is a challenge, to say the least.
Today’s flash back is to a couple of my favorite individual Christmas portraits: Deklan’s is from 2010, and Easton’s is from 2011.
