Just a few more shots from Jilda’s belly shoot.

It’s always fun to have a yoga lover in the studio.

Last week Henry turned 5 months.

Watching him grow has become my new favorite past times. But I wish it would go just a little bit slower.

I’ve been taking lots of pictures so I can remember every moment and I thought I would share some from past month.

If you can believe it my next couple of posts will actually be some WORK…..yes the dreaded 4 letter word! I’m back in the swing of things. With one wedding and 4 portraits down. I’m feeling good about working again. But I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t say I was struggling a bit with going back to work so soon. I LOVE my job…….most days it doesn’t even feel like work.But my sweet little Henry is what I miss when I work. His hugs and smiles and even his little squawks.

And as I type this now Henry is screaming for my attention. I’m going to say right now…..it is the hardest thing I have ever done……being a mother and trying to work.

But I should go……before Henry really gets mad and I feel like a bad mum.

Joanne and Eric’s wedding day was in one word……relaxing!

Aside from the torrential downpour that happened as we were arriving on Toronto Island the day just flew by.

Luckily the storm broke and we got a chance to go outside and take some pictures.

I don’t know the entire story……but Joanne’s dress was a loaner from a designer and was once worn by Elisha Cuthbert.

I have a feeling Elisha didn’t look this good in it! And I LOVE that it wasn’t your typical wedding dress!

One thing about the rain……it makes the colors pop…..look at those eyes!

Amy and Dave will be married this fall in true vintage style at Amy’s family home in St Agatha.

I can’t wait!

For their barebonelove session we headed To Clyde where Amy keeps her horse……couldn’t have asked for a nicer day!

Height difference…..what height difference?

When I said that I was only taking 10 weddings a year people thought I was crazy. How could you stop doing the thing your good at?

Well I don’t see it that way at all. By only taking 10 weddings a year it allows me to be more creative and a spend more time with each client.

And in the case of Dorie and Paul……..it allows me to book a wedding 2 weeks before the big event.

As soon as I got on the phone with Dorie I knew we were going to have a good time. Dorie and Paul have been together for 12 years and decided last minute that it was the time to “get hitched”. I am just so glad I was available to shoot their intimate affair!

They were married this past Saturday at Toronto City Hall.

Joanne and Eric and I met for the first time via skype. They where in Dubai on a job and wouldn’t be back to Canada for a couple months. But even from that first conversation I knew they had come to the right place. They will be married June 14th at The Rectory Cafe on Toronto Island. So why wouldn’t we start our barebonelove session on the ferry?

Jennifer and Carmin are very easy to be around and they are extremely easy to shoot.

I think the pictures speak for themselves……….

I had picked this location before they arrived……and then I saw Jennifer’s dress……perfection.

So you may have noticed that I have been absent from the blog for a little while.

Well……I needed some down time…..but now I’m back and refreshed and ready to blogdigitty blog!

Over the holiday break I went to one of the most inspiring and fun workshops I have ever had the pleasure of attending.

MYSTIC 5 in CT.

Not only did I learn a lot about gear and technique, But I also was refreshed in mind and spirit. And  the partying until 4:30 every night was also good for the soul!

Mystic consists of 300 “students” and 15 speakers and presented by Walter Van Dusen.

Some of my favorite speakers were:

Dave and Quinn from DQ studio’s ~ fantastic shooters and people  ~ techie info galore ~ Thank you David for introducing me to evernote ( Yeah Canadian’s!!!!!)

David Williams ~ who’s presentation makes you cry no matter how tough you are. ~ Thank you David for reminding us to take images of our lives………not just our clients.

Story Wilkins ~ Wonderful to have finally met her……now I see what all the fuss is about, not only a talented photographer but also an amazing person. She hails from Toronto….so nice to see so many Canadians @ Mystic

Jerry Ghionis ~ This man has so much energy and love to give……you can’t be in a room with him and not want to give him a hug. Plus his work is stunning!

Tri-Coast ~Cody and Mike put on an amazing demonstration about off camera flash that I actually understood…….which is a HUGE accomplishment seeing that my massive learning disability involves #’s and memory. ~ Plus they are incredibly down to earth funny human beings!

Here are some shots to accompany the gushing! ( I didn’t bring my camera out often…..so there aren’t very many shots…..but these ones get the point across….we had a TON of fun!)

This is Tim Forbes……..his work is stunning check it out here.
