Back after a few years.

I've been away for quite some time-thought I'd update my blog.

Those are my children.
Life has been kind to me in many ways over the last few years. My business had grown from strength to strength - Family Photographer I have met new clients, continued to serve regular clients - it's been fabulous.

Through the many years, I've grown as a person, ha, yes, I've put on a bit of weight. This morning was my 1st day back at the gym since September 2016. I really did try to enjoy it, but unfortunately, it wasn't coffee, wine or chips.
Why can't I be one of those fabulous people who loves and dies by the gym? Today I did my arms, biceps/triceps/shoulders, tomorrow I am hoping to be 30lbs smaller - one can only hope.

Small steps-small steps.

Harlow my three year old slept for 13 hours...YES, 13 hours... Moms with non sleepers don't hate me...I thought that when she awoke this morning that lambs, rainbows and birds would be following down the stairs. THIS did NOT happen...How can you have this much sleep and be so grumpy?
She dressed herself three different times this morning, nothing she wore was good enough. She was looking for the perfect ensemble to represent her true being. The pink shirt with hearts didn't quite cut it.
When I asked what she would like for breakfast, her response was "NO"... Perhaps it was the way I said it, I rephrased the question, her response was "NO" and then a floor tantrum. My thought for today is, where is the wine??!?!

Dreams mixed with reality.

For many years I have worked in jobs that I have loathed. Jobs that have been soul destroying. About 2 years ago my wonderful husband purchased me my 1st DSLR. It was a Canon Rebel T3, it was love at 1st sight.
Chocolate brown in colour with the 18-55 kit lens, I was on top of the world. Taking a million pictures a day.
I then started to go to school to help with my growth as a person who takes pictures... I learned lots of cool stuff, including how to use aperture and shutter speed and ISO. I am on my 3rd class now, the Studio Lighting Class and I am totally pumped to learn new stuff.
I took many pictures of friends and their kids and babies, each better than the last. Hoping that I continue to grow and become an excellent photographer in time.
I am busy as a bee these days taking pictures for people and I hope it never stops.
