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 session was so relaxing and gentle.  It was nice to meet this family and have a furry friend in the studio too!

Steph and Rich’s twins came home from the hospital recently and these little tinies got to come get snuggly in my studio.

I got to spend the other morning in the studio with Lyndsay, Aaron, and their rainbow babies – twins!  It was a nice time.  Being a mom of twins myself, it was a great throwback.. cool to discuss how they noticed different personalities between the girls already. Having twins is a very, very special thing.  Congratulations to Lyndsay and Aaron on their amazing double addition to their family.
