A Lot of Learning Left

So what I learned about shooting weddings: you sweat your ass off running all over the place to try to get the shot, not wanting to miss a second. It was another great learning experience and really reinforced that I have a lot more learning to do. I walked away with a lot more usable shots that the first wedding so we'll consider it a win. And I know the clients considered it a win too, so that's all that matters. This is one of my favorite shots from this time around.


Pretending to be a professional, looking like I'm doing a good job. Rebecca and Rob's wedding. What a beautiful family, what a fantastic day!

I can't even believe I'm posting this. It's sad to admit this is what I look like most mornings.

After an evening in at the Hilton and too much champagne, a hangover breakfast at the Flying Saucer was in order. The last time we were here we split the Honeymooner's Special.

Learning the family cabbage roll recipe. Syx's aunt Janice, cousin Tania and my mother in law. A great group of ladies to spend the afternoon rolling cabbage with. We rolled hundreds for our Ontario wedding reception.

Photo by Syx. Edited by me. More lessons in Lightroom with my husband on a lazy sort of afternoon.

When you have a toddler, every trip out becomes an ordeal. You pack diapers, snacks, and you have to make sure you have a sippy cup and you have to make sure you bring something to keep them entertained. We have a really big camera and sometimes it's a really big hassle to lug it out every time. I often find myself thankful for my iphone - it actually takes decent photos and I even have a photoshop app!

favorite things

One of the reasons I love taking photos is because my husband looks at me like this when I have a camera in my hand.

A BIG FAT FAIL!!!!!!!!
Getting ready for vacation/working like a mad woman.

Saturday, December 4, 2010


I really love this shot. Taken with my iphone, converted to black and white and cranked the exposure and contrast to really make those shadow lines pop. This even inspired my husband, the real photographer, to take a similar shot.

Another fail, so here's another portrait by someone else. This amazing family portrait was taken by Joe McNally while he was in town teaching a workshop for VPW. So brilliantly beautiful. It was such an honor to have him shoot us.
