Welcome to the World

24 Sep

I had the amazing opportunity to work with a wonderful photographer that I have admired for quite some time now.  Jen at JLS Photography of Langley , BC  http://jlsphotography.ca/ mentored me in a photoshoot with my friend’s baby boy.  It was amazing how much I learned in that hour and a bit, listening to her and watching how she manipulated the little man into position.  I love the result of the photos I took.  I even managed to teach myself a teeny bit of photoshop tonight and do up a “welcome to the world” announcement!  So much to learn!

newborns are so sweet

21 Sep

I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity of taking newborn photos for my wonderful friend. I’m in the process of transitioning through careers and focusing on my photography. After 18 years as an insurance broker, I think it’s time to do something I am passionate about. This little guy, at 1 week old, was an absolute darling.

Packing a little one for a road trip

10 Aug

Today is “packing day” we leave early tomorrow morning – Driving from BC down to Oregon and area. This drive, with a 2 year old, should prove interesting. It has already taken me 2 hours just to pack her little suitcase. She likes to “help” meaning she follows behind me and undoes everything I do! Finally I have gotten her suitcase organized and packed (of course there is a different mess to clean up now! E decide to “help” and she emptied our freezer!)

So I had to come up with a solution… Call it desperate parenting… Crib and iPad – worked for about 20mins!

Any tips on travel with toddlers?
