Well. Today is the last day of my 20s. It’s also the last day of both my 30-before-30 and the photo-a-day project I was doing as part of my 30-before-30 project. I can’t really believe it! Here’s what a year in pictures (minus about 60 days, represented by coloured boxes) looks like. For bigger versions,
One of the items on my 30-before-30 list is to “be less afraid”. While I admit this goal sounds vague, I actually have a pretty good idea of what I mean (it was maybe just a wee-bit personal for the internet). But, personal-schmersonal I’m going to tell you all about it today! Just like everyone
As with the rest of this week, this is a pre-programmed post! If all goes according to plan, I’ll be back late Tuesday night with my most epic travel tuesday post yet. If you are very detail oriented, you might notice that Sunday is February 5 and that I owe you my month 4 update
I’m in Antarctica until February 7th! This post was pre-programmed! You want to know what I love. Really good portrait & wedding photographers. And I’m pretty sure your not surprised about that, given my current employ as a wedding photographer. And in the female spirit of Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s posts. Women. Again. I’m starting to
Last Friday I told you all about how I was quitting my job and following my dreams. Moving to Buenos Aires. Becoming a full time entrepreneur. And it sure sounds like I’ve got it all together. Well, today I’ve got a little secret to share with you: living “the dream”, well it’s a lot less
Bokeh (boh-kay) is the way that the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. You might hear people describe it as “those light spots” or “those blurry lights”. You can read all sorts of neat stuff about bokeh here, here, and here if your technically inclined. What I’m going to talk to you about
One of the things on my 30-before-30 list was to get new business cards for my photography business! So I was very, very excited when I discovered these templates for mini MOO cards. I love the mini cards. They are just a little bit different than your traditional business card, and they make me stand
This past weekend I was in San Francisco.. I shot a wedding and an engagement session. It was amazing. As you can probably tell if you’ve been reading carefully, I’ve got big news. News I’m dying to share. I don’t know whether I’m going to share this news tonight or tomorrow morning, but it is
Just a word of a warning before you start reading this post… there are almost 2,000 words in it. And a heck of a lot of pictures. If you love weddings (or details about how a cheepy like me plans a detail filled wedding) read on! Otherwise, you might want to give this one a
Remember about 6 weeks ago I told you about my new film camera? The Nikon FM, a fully manual camera. This camera is not only manual exposure, but manual focus. I know that I’m comfortable shooting manual exposure, because I shoot almost entirely in manual during photoshoots and at weddings. One of the really cool
Remember when I told you I was in Canmore for one of my best friends’ weddings? Well. It was amazing. Seriously amazing. It also resulted in a super fun animated GIF for your viewing pleasure! Happy Sunday Friends!
Remember when I pronounced that I was going to do an iPhoneography challenge for the month of April. And then remember when I failed? Well – for 30 days in June and July I successfully completed a neat 30-day photography challenge that I found on pinterest! It was hosted by Mary of White Peach Photography.
Wedding season officially starts for me today, with my first second shooting gig of the season for Angie Baer Photography. We are shooting a wedding at a beautiful church in Stratford, Ontario and I can’t wait! I’m on schedule to shoot 7 weddings this season (3 as a second shooter, and 4 of my own
Last weekend, on Mother’s Day, the hubs and I went for a walk in High Park to see the cherry blossoms and then trekked all the way home from there. As neither one of us lives in the same city as our moms, we had nice long phone calls with them in the morning (fulfilling
Where have I been (other than writing a mother’s day post for my mom) you ask? Well, I’ve been a busy little bee working on being a lawyer and being a photographer! As I promise on my about me page, this blog is going to be full of shameless self promotion, so (a little not-so-shamelessly,
