Sorry again, it’s been a while! Life has been pretty crazy the past few months, to say the least. My husband and I bought a house (finally) and I’ve signed up to do some correspondence courses in my free time, so most of my mental and physical energy has been going into those things. But, one of the exciting things that has been in the back of my mind to blog about has been the birth of little baby N. Baby N is a gorgeous little boy born way back in September to some friends of ours from University .
I was delighted to be able to do a newborn shoot with this little guy and his proud mama. These are just a very few of my favs. There were so many!! Baby N was only 10 days old :)
Look at those baby blue eyes, and that blond hair!
Love how this one turned out…
and of course, the sweet little baby bottom :)
Thanks Mama, it was an absolute pleasure working with you both!
Well folks, it’s official. It can’t be denied any longer. Nope, no way around it… It’s definitely Fall! I know Fall officially started about a week ago now, but I like to ignore official timelines as long as possible when the approach of cold weather is at hand. But now that it’s October 1st (holy cow what happened to September?) and the cooler weather is clearly here to stay, I can safely admit to it being Autumn. I even turned our gas fireplace on last night (much to the dogs’ delight I must add).
As you can tell, I’m not a big fan of being cold. I much prefer heat and sun and summer. So to cheer myself up (and probably some of you) I thought I’d post a couple photos I took last year during the heart of Fall. It may be cooler outside, but nature is never more beautiful!
So to all you cold-weather haters out there, get ready to light up a nice fire, sip hot chocolate, and admire the beauty that is moving in :)
I know I’ve been a bad blogger lately… I’m sorry!!! In an effort to catch up I’ll do a few new postings over the next couple weeks.
Here are some of the photos I took waaaay back in May during the Doors Open event in Toronto. (On that note, wow summer is going by fast! Don’t know about you, but it’s been pretty rainy and cloudy here most of the summer. Here’s hoping August picks up…)
This past long weekend (Victoria Day in Canada) my husband and I went to the Adirondacks to go hiking. We did the same last year with a couple of friends and had a blast hiking and hanging out. It seemed like a nice tradition so we decided to try and do it each May long weekend. This year was a little tricky… hubby was in the Ukraine on business for the week beforehand, getting in on the Friday night, and I was trying to get over a back injury. But we pushed through and went ahead with the weekend.
The weather could have been better, and I was limited by my back, but we got out and got away from things. We stayed at a nice little B&B called Keene Valley Lodge. They had a great fireplace that was perfect for relaxing in front of with a bottle of wine… A perfect way to spend a rainy evening. Overall, it was nice to be back and I think it’s safe to say we’ll try to go each year that we can.
And of course I took some pictures of our time there… Here’s a little piece of the Adirondacks High Peaks region :)
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a family portrait session with Clara and her daughter Montana. Clara and I used to work together a few years ago. It was fun catching up and hearing the latest news of my old workplace.
This was the first family portraits I have done, so I was very excited to try something new. Everyone was great and enthusiastic, which of course made my job easier. We really lucked out with the weather, it was a baking hot 27C, which felt a little odd for end of April. And just as we were finishing up our portraits the clouds were moving in. Luckily we were all done by the time the massive thunderstorm moved in… The wind and sudden rain was crazy. Very tornado like! But all in all it was a success!
Clara and Montana, I am so happy you chose me to do this session. I had a blast hanging with you guys… and talking a little Twilight :P
Here are some of my favs from the day:
If you sent me an email in the last few days and I haven’t gotten back to you, please email me again. When I switched over my domain name on Tuesday it messed with my email too, so I haven’t received anything in my inbox since then. This also applies to any contact forms that were filled out.
Don’t worry, I’m not ignoring you! Please try again, I’ve fixed it all up :)
It’s taken me a while to get around to posting this, but I thought I’d make myself sit down and do a quick post on Juveria’s (of Mike & Juveria) bridal shower held by her Maid of Honour in Mississauga. It was a lovely afternoon, low key and with plenty of treats to go around.
Here’s a couple pics I managed to snap while enjoying the fun…
And don’t forget all the little details that go into a shower to make it special…
Mike was holed up in the building waiting to drive Juveria and her mountain of gifts home. He showed up at the end to say hello and thanks.
And also there were adorable dogs… This shower had everything! :P
Their wedding is coming up fast! Can’t wait guys :)
I just opened up a new shop on Etsy.com and I’m super excited about it! I am working on getting more and more listings up, but have about 6 so far.
Etsy is such a great website for purchasing handmade, one-of-a-kind items. You can also find unique vintage items and even supplies for your own crafts. It’s also a great place for inspiration for your own hobbies.
But I warn you, if you’ve never visited the site, prepare to spend hours there :D
Swing by and check me out: betweenthelinesphoto.etsy.com
Christmas time is a great time for family portraits since you’re most likely to get everyone together (and hopefully they’ll all be smiling!). This togetherness is especially true in my family. There’s a lot of us, on both my mom’s side and my dad’s side, and we really only get together for holidays and some special occasions. Just yesterday my parents had a get-together and asked that we do some nice portraits of the family. Turns out it’s difficult to photograph your family; they like to talk back :P
Anyways, here are some of the shots I got. Hopefully the family will enjoy them…!
Wishing a wonderful holiday (or un-holiday) season, to you and yours.
