Jackie and Paul's Engagement Session Sneak Peak

Yesterday I had the opportunity to do an Engagement session for Jackie and Paul. I had met Jackie a while ago but had never met Paul before. After chatting for a little bit at the beginning I knew we were going to have a lot of fun. They are so cute together. When they look at each other they instantly smile which in turns makes the people around them smile. The morning started out a little blustery but it didn't take long for the snow to stop and for us to get some great shots. I am not their wedding photographer but I would like to think that we've become friends after today. I wish them nothing but happiness and love in their upcoming wedding and marriage.
Keep smiling at each other,

Winterlude 2009

We had such a great day at Winterlude on Monday and to make it even better it was Family Day. We started off by going over the the ice slides and looking at the snow sculptures. It always blows my mind to see what they can do with a big block of snow. It always makes me think about all the complaining that we do about it as well. How can something that causes people so much grief be so beautiful.
From there is was on to the canal. Michaela was the only only one that skated, the rest of us just walked it. It was such a nice day and the ice conditions were perfect. So many people were out enjoying the festivities. To top off our great day it was Beavertails all around. Oh so good but somehow they seem to taste that much better when they're enjoyed at Winterlude.
Because everything is better with a picture I put together a few from the day.

Wedding Albums

I have spent some time lately researching wedding album suppliers. I didn't realize that there were so many choices out there. I have narrowed it down to two companies- Finao and Asukabook. I have heard nothing but good things and have had the chance to take part in webinars for both companies. I am in the process of putting together a couple of sample albums and will hopefully have them order within a couple of weeks. Both companies offer lots of choices as to size, page type, cover style, and creative design. I'm looking forward to having them in my hand and being able to share them with my customers. And as my girl Jasmine says "Everything is better with pictures" here are a couple to wet your appetite.

We're Nuts- Another Dog

I have spent the week getting use to having another dog in the house. We bought him home on Sunday and we loved him the minute we seen him. Brom is a Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel Poodle cross). He's very playful and cuddly as well. Marco is adjusting and at times doesn't quiet know what to make of this little fluff ball jumping all over him. As well as the new dog I have done some work on my photography.
I've been working on finishing up my business plan, much to Andy delight, and also took in some webinars regarding wedding albums. I was thankful to also be able to sit in on a video chat of one of my photography idols. Bet you didn't know we had our own that we worshiped did you? Well we do and we are also very protective when they get disced. Tomorrow I'm headed to a photography seminar and hopefully will be able to take in a little bit of Winterlude here in Ottawa over the weekend as well.
Cheers & have a great weekend,
