Last one today, I promise.
Just wanted to post a few photos of some super adorable kids and their equally adorable mama.
We had a session back in December, but the 30 degrees below zero temperatures didn’t make for the biggest smiles. So this is a little something I did up of round two. Jolene, your kids are fantastic, and you should be very proud!
Third blog post in one day…
I should probably have saved the last few to use over the next few weeks, but I couldn’t help it. Just too much cuteness.
This is my cousin Christine’s beautiful baby boy, Carter. He was born December 2011 and since then, he’s had my whole heart.
You better believe your eyes… This is the 2nd blog post in one day. After almost an entire year of very little photo-taking, I am so excited to share what I’ve been up to this summer.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the very small, very intimate wedding of my dear friends, Robert and Jocelyn.
The reason this wedding was so special to me, is because A) the bride and groom would not know each other if it were not for me (round of applause for myself).. and B) Jamie and I got to be the witnesses to this happy day. We were the only two people with an official invite. The morning of the wedding, the bride and groom decided they were going to invite their parents and Robert’s grandparents brother who were in town. I’ve never attended a ceremony of less than 150 people before, so this was all very new to me.
I was more than happy to play the role of best friend, photographer, witness, and hair stylist.
Anyways, without further ado, may I proudly present to you: Mr. and Mrs. Robert and Jocelyn Galloway.
Ok, so I’m a bit early, but since the day after Halloween I’ve been in full Christmas Mode. I have a fair chunk of my Christmas shopping complete- still a few gifts here and there to pick up. I haven’t quite started decorating my house yet, but it’s not because I don’t want to. My entire place is under complete renovation. Flooring, paint, trim, doors, fixtures, backsplashes, hardware, tub, vanity, drywall. You name it, it’s happening in my house. In time, everything will be covered in holiday cheer.
Anyways, over Thanks Giving, I had the pleasure of photographing Kelsey and Richie’s engagement photos at her family’s farm.
Here are a few photos from the session.
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of following my dear friend Jeremy and his new bride, Jaime around on their wedding day. The weather was perfect, and everything went off without a hitch. (Except for the part where they got hitched.. that had a hitch).
From makeup to the bouquet toss, this wedding was truly all about Jeremy and Jaime. So many friends and family gathered to support the two of them, and put everything aside to help celebrate the most important day of their lives so far.
Enough typing, I’ll let the photos tell the story.
I moved to South Eastern Saskatchewan.
I live in a town of 200 people. It’s actually referred to as a “village”. 20 minutes out of town (population 1500). I wake up every morning and look out my window and see the lake that I live on. I can sit on my balcony and drink my tea and hear the birds. The sun shines through the trees and my dog chases the butterflies, and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing. It sounds so cheesy, I know. But it’s been so nice to get away from the city life. Back to my small town roots. I can drive around town and recognize people! Something I haven’t experienced since I moved to the GTA in 2009.
Now, I know living in rural Saskatchewan might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I find it to be such a sweet life. Everyone I meet is genuinely nice, and will give you the shirt off their backs if you need it.
Currently, I’m working on building up my business here in SK. In the midst of that, Jamie and I are also renovating our apartment. The laminate flooring came in last night, all of the kitchen cabinets are off to be painted, the walls are waiting for paint, the bathroom is waiting for new flooring, and I’m preparing for a couple of months of disaster.
Anyhoo. Just a small update on my life from the past couple of months. Photos will be up soon. <3
Love you all.
Sorry it’s been so long since my last post. Since my last post, I finished photography school, moved to a new city, got a new apartment, had my sister Hailey come to visit, and got two new jobs.
Job #1 : I work at Hollister, a clothing store in the mall.. Glamorous- I know…
Job #2 : I’ve been given an amazing opportunity by a friend and mentor of mine, to go along to weddings, conferences, trade shows, and events with his custom photo booth (www.getthebooth.com) and basically make sure everything runs smoothly, re-load the printer, etc.
So, fresh out of college, I am so glad to be able to dip my toes into the industry in such a unique way.
Anyways, a few Sundays ago, I had the pleasure of attending and photographing a bridal shower for my girl Victoria. (We’ve only met once, but I’ve creeped her Facebook page enough that I’m comfortable calling her “my girl” ) [hah]
Anyways, all creepiness aside. The shower was as beautiful as the soon-to-be bride. [Honest to goodness I didn't mean for that to rhyme]
Here are a few photographs from Victoria’s bridal shower. Enjoy! xox
Cake and cupcakes compliments of her mother in law to be.
Surprise! Groom-to-be showed up to confess his love!
So it seems I’ve disappeared from the face of the [blog] Earth. My apologies. As some of you may know, I’m wrapping up my final semester of Digital Photography and Imaging, and have been crazy busy with final assignments, apartment hunting, etc. It’s a crazy time in the life of me.
It’s time for change.
Now, since the sudden loss of my previous blog, I’ve meant to re-build this one with most of the images that were on the last one, but finding the time is harder than I thought. I’m going to work hard at updating more often! Promise
So- what have I been up to? Let’s see. Hands & feet up the wazoo, print packages (business cards, brochures, letterheads- you know- all that fun stuff), business plans, final portfolios, job hunting, blah blah blah. I wish I would have photographed my print package before I handed it in. I spent a solid four days on an assignment that was only worth 5% of my mark… I guess I’d rather be doing arts and crafts instead of writing up business plans…. (Sorry P.Northcott).
So, going to cut to the chase. This post will include a little bit of everything.
Hope you enjoy.
