Pet Portrait 2012
Look at this real cutie by the name of Henry. Being a beagle he was very curious about what was going on. He came along with his family for a “family portrait” but I really loved this shot. He was so much fun to capture!! The family portrait will be added at a later date.
Having a career as a professional photographer is a dream come true for me & a blessing I am always grateful for. What better life can anyone experience than to do what you love to do!! How lucky am I? So another year has arrived & I’m so excited with all that is waiting for me to document from behind my lens. New people to meet…little kids with their newly forming personalities, brides & grooms joyously in love & excited in their future, beaming moms & dads so full of pride in their kids, professionals wishing to market their business whatever it may be, beautiful young women looking to make a future in the modelling profession, small business owners needing promotional visuals of their products/services …sometimes even the little surprises like meeting family pets (one of my favourites). There’s always something interesting going on in my day to day activities.
Enough about me now & back to sending you lots of New Years wishes for 2012. May this coming year bring all your dreams to fruition, all the love you need & all the prosperity you work hard for. A special wish is to all the new parents-to-be & newly engaged couples whose love is reflected in all the joy they are experiencing….Love really does make the world go round!
Thanks to all who visit my photo blog! Please visit often….I love your feedback!!

To Everyone Who Visits My Photo Blog
I have had the pleasure of meeting people from all walks of life & cultures. Everyone celebrates in their own way but the message of peace, love & joy remains a constant. I personally celebrate Christmas but there’s Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Diwali & others that I’m not familiar with. So here are a few of the ones that I am familiar with through the people I have met in my business.
ESSEX COUPLE READY FOR THE HUNT
Cathy & Chuck
Cathy called the studio one day to ask if I could go out to their property in Essex to take some lifestyle shots of them participating in their hobby of hunting with bow & arrow. I was quite surprised when I saw their equipment as I was expecting an old fashioned bow & arrow. Instead the weapon was huge & very high-tech, as you will see in the shot below. We wandered around their property as they talked about their hunting hobby & how much they enjoyed going out as a couple. The shot below was one of their favourite ones. It was an interesting day & a pleasure to get to meet these two experienced hunters.
Danielle, Miranda, Joelle & Richard
I love this photo of Danielle, Richard, Miranda & Joelle! A perfect ‘Lifestyle’ family photo where the whole family is interacting. This family was a ton of fun to work with & I captured lots of urban looking shots while we wandered around this neighbourhood. All of them had a great time! This is the shot they chose for their Christmas card.
Sasha Rivard – Fulop
I miss you so much my friend!! I still hear your unique laughter & remember all the times we played dominos, sipped wine & generally goofed off. You were truly one of a kind!

marguerite & jesse
October 1, 2011
BRIDE: Marguerite, 30, Correctional Officer
GROOM: Jesse, 30, Slot Tech, Casino Windsor
HOW THEY MET: Schoolmates
HOW LONG ENGAGED: 1 year
THEIR WEDDING STYLE: Modern with a hint of Tradition
Mixology can seem a hard art to master, but with dedication everyone
can become a msestro of love’s heartwarming cocktail. Take:
2 measures trust
1 measure commitment
1 measure friendship
3/4 measure understanding
2/3 measure patience
1 dash of laughter
1 teaspoon romance
Blend well together, pour out a generous glassful, and serve stirred,
not shaken. Sprinkle with kisses, and top with a slice
of passion fruit!
The wedding of Marguerite & Jesse was so much fun! I remember how she giggled a lot & how beautiful she looked with her long dark hair flowing down over her shoulders. She and her handsome husband were perfect together savoring all the joy & good-natured fun throughout the day. And even though wild & crazy winds visited Windsor that day they both took it in stride deciding to take a chance anyway to head to the Peace Fountain for some playful picture taking. Marguerite had to hold on tight to her veil but we managed to squeeze a few in before the wind had a chance to sweep us away.
Marguerite planned her day all herself & did a fantastic job, loving every minute. She chose a stunning strapless gown from Bridal Couture with a beautiful back reveal, a panel insert train with stunning embellishments that perfectly dressed up the loosely tiered front. Finishing off her look was a really feminine pair of ivory heels, an ivory bouquet, a finely embellished veil, a band bracelet, chandelier earrings & a delicate necklace just to add a little bling in the right spots.
Again I had the pleasure of feeling like family at this wedding & consider Marguerite as another friend I met while doing what I love to do. Congrats to you both Marguerite & Jesse. I have dedicated a poem to you both as I’m starting to do for all my couples. Enjoy!!
