Becky and friends

24 Oct

Holidays are always good for getting the gang together.  Everyone was home over Thanksgiving, so Rebecca of Not your Basic Becky asked me if I could do a shoot with her and some of her besties at Gammondale Farm.  Click on the images to view larger!

Ice Day!

26 Apr

Blizzards, snowfall, and storms aren’t uncommon for Aprils in Thunder Bay.  City closure due to weather is pretty uncommon as well, but an ice storm has given us a day off school and work today!

The girls and I started our day with peanut butter banana smoothies and yoga. We did lots of playing and painting, planted seeds to start our garden, and just after lunch we decided to go outside.  We smashed tons of ice off the car and other surfaces outside; a surprising inch or so thick in lots of places!

When the wind got to be too much we came in to watch a show but the power went out!

I had an idea to keep us entertained, something I’ve wanted to do since the lightpainting workshop at Neechee: Experimenting with portable light in the studio.  Flashlights, sparklers, strobes, etc.

Now, it’s hard as heck to get the girls be still and follow my directions – they want to do their own posing and follow their ideas, but I let them run the show and still got fun results!

Once in a while a school closure is such a treat – a surprise sleep in annnnnd a day with the kids.  Good attitudes all ’round at this house.

This sweetie pie had fun with props!

One of my first clients for the Roots to Harvest fundraiser 🙂

Promo/fundraiser time!

27 Jan

From now through February I’m putting on a photo deal to raise funds for a local organization called Roots to Harvest – click here to see what they do.

In preparation for it, we’ve picked out some fun props for those who want to take it to that level.  I have lots of ideas, from cute to serious and whatever in between.

They don’t HAVE to be themed, since I am running the promo past Valentine’s day, but here are some ideas below for people wanting just that!
