Maternity Photos

A while back I had the opportunity to shoot a Maternity session, and just no time to post a little peek.  It was a super cold day so we were relegated to shooting indoors.  I think I’ve grown soft living on the west coast, anything under 10 degrees just chills me to the bone.  Really though, I think it was minus 5 or something like that, which really is c-c-cold.  These twin boys have since arrived!  Congratulations guys!  I can’t wait to meet the little guys!

Fav of the Week: 2

I’m behind on this one: but my favourite photo from last week is also in my previous post, so please excuse the double up.   This one does not have David’s vote, but he’s not a girl, so he can’t appreciate what I would like about an antique chandelier.   You can see the whole week on my One Photo Blog.

Diapers, Soothers & Success

I read recently that in order to maintain enthusiasm in business you must surround yourself with people who believe in you and inspire you. Enter Momcafe. A venue to connect with inspiring women, and forge those relationships of encouragement and inspiration. It was a pleasure to photograph the launch event for Momcafe Fraser Valley this Thursday morning. Babies, mom’s – new and experienced, lattes, food and inspiration. I think that makes for a pretty great morning!

It was seriously inspiring to listen to Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz and Cybele Negris share a bit about of their career journeys. I definitely walked away with things to ponder and implement.

There was the opportunity to ask questions.

One of the many perks of being a Momcafe member is getting the opportunity to share about your business.

It was great to see women connecting with one another in the comfort of the cozy and eclectic Clayburn Gourmet Gallery.

If you weren’t there, seriously consider attending the next event. You can connect with Momcafe Fraser Valley on facebook to learn more.
Thank you Holly for the opportunity to photograph this event for you!

Fav Photo of the Week

Yesterday marked the last day of 365 days of blogging for a photographer I follow. It was inspirational to see her accomplish that goal. I can’t put that sort of pressure on myself though, but I had planned on starting a similar personal project in which I took a photo each day of the year, give or take – but I need to pick one fav image each week. Each week will have certain limits placed upon it – like one week I will only take pictures with the iphone etc. Some weeks I intend to follow a particular theme, but the main goal is to be able to look back and see life. I need fluidity, but I have been impacted with how life can change drastically from one New Years Eve to the next. It would be so amazing to be able to take a visual look back and see everyday, or at least every week. I want to a push to see creatively, and to try to capture life as it is (or isn’t – if that is the goal). I didn’t want the pressure of having to post the photo everyday if I didn’t want to, so I set up a blog specifically for the daily stuff. I’ll pick my favourite, and share it here. Of coarse if you care to see the whole week, I’ll share the link to the daily(ish) site url: HERE
This week I restricted myself to the wide angle at the same focal length. The story telling lens. So one photo each day, with one lens. With the exception of the first day, since I had not made up my mind to restrict myself yet. That came as an after thought.
