Calvin's Christmas Portraits

Bashful Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty All I want for Christmas... B&W

Calvin is my fiancé's, cat.  While we were decorating the tree this year, he was looking on with such curiosity.  We put a mini Santa hat on him, and a star was born.  He sat very patiently as I clicked away with my camera, and we ended up with lots of super cute shots - it was tough to narrow them down!  He needs to be put into Kitty Modelling, if there is such a thing!

Tommy James and the Shondells

Wow - over a month since my last blog entry - oops! I have been very busy.  In any case...
On September 3, 2011, I planned a visit to the Canadian National Exhibition (aka The Ex), not just because it's my annual tradition for the summer, but also because one of my favourite bands from the 1960s, Tommy James and the Shondells, were playing. 
I had seen the band once before with The Hermans Hermits, in Clearwater FL, and they were amazing... once again, they did not disappoint!

More pictures from the show are up here.

Last Long Weekend... Andy Kim

One month ago, on the previous Canadian long weekend (Canada Day, July 1st... for the record, today is also a holiday - Civic Holiday, aka we need one more summer long weekend holiday), I headed out to Woodbine Park for the Red White and Vinyl Canada Day Celebration.  I actually just wanted to see Andy Kim, so that's exactly what I did.

And, of course, Canada Day wouldn't be complete without some fireworks!

A Kid in an Ice Cream Shop

so many choices!! It sometimes happens that I don't have my DSLR on hand to capture those picture perfect life moments... Or, in some cases, it would just be very inappropriate to pull it out.

Yesterday was one of those days - I took my favourite 5-year-old out for ice cream, and she was just too cute with her nose pressed up against the glass, trying to decide which topping would be the best!  My iPhone, with the PictureShow app subbed in, and I came up with this super sweet shot!

vanilla with sprinkles, a wise decision!

P.S. In case you were wondering - she chose vanilla with rainbow sprinkles!

Portraits - Marlena

On a random week in June, one of my Floridian BFF's came to visit me, and was happy to be my model as I thrust her into different locations and told her to say cheese!  Here's the result of those days:

May 2011: Pittsburgh, PA


Back in May, I went on a road trip with my aunt & grandmother to visit some family in Pennsylvania.  While we were there, we went out to Pittsburgh (about 1 hour away from where we were) for the day to see a few of the sights.  This is what I saw:

Try one, itsa nice! Backwards

Portraits: K&S - maternity session

This is probably the quickest I've ever turned around a photo session!  Mom-to-be, K, contacted me on a Tuesday, we shot the photos on Friday, and by Wednesday they had their photos in hand!  *Phew!*

I think it's mostly because K & her husband, S, were a breeze to work with.  Just look at these two - so happy and positively glowing with the impending arrival of their bundle of joy.  They asked for some simple shots, using nature as the backdrop, with no props or gimmicks.  I was happy to deliver:

Fallen tree, perfect bench B&W

While we were out shooting, we stumbled upon a lovely, big tree, that seemed to have a little surprise of it's own... ;)
Pregnant Tree?

K & S - I wish you all the best in the upcoming weeks!

Vintage Cars

I'm a big fan of all things "retro".  If I could live in any era, I would definitely pick the 60s.  So when I learned that there would be a retro car show as part of a street festival in Toronto, I was all about bringing my camera out to capture their beauty.  Here are some of my favourites:

Portraits - Baby A.

Also in May, I had the pleasure of photographing one of the most beautiful baby girls I've ever met.   She was super sweet, and would let anyone hold her, and more importantly, was very interested in having me photograph her!

One of my favourite places on earth: Clearwater, FL

Do you have a place that just draws you in as soon as you get there?  Somewhere that feels as much (or even more) like home than your actual home?  Clearwater FL is one of those places for me.  Here are some of my favourite photos from over the years...
