Whine. Vent. Grrrr. Feel free to skip this one.

Super frustrated. My photography site is down. Again. Fatcow is really determined to lose me as a customer it seems, and it’s about time I started believing it. I don’t want to be someone who can’t take a hint. LOL. Except not.

Anyway, lots going on… I’ll admit something- that’s usually the phrase I wind up typing instead of what I’m really thinking about… which is- can we find a match for Bay already? Get registered to be a bone marrow donor if you haven’t yet. Please. Thanks. I miss gluten. How many sessions can I fit in before I take a few weeks off for my sisters visit? Wanna help me find out? Hit me up for a session now!

Yeah. Pretty random in this head of mine. Anyway. I suppose I needed to say something about how annoyed I am with Fatcow right now. Out loud. To the universe. My next post will be more interesting. Ha.

My ultimate photography wish list – subjects and scenarios

I think about this all the time. Naturally. What I want to photograph and where. I’ve been pretty lucky so far in that my subjects have either chosen awesome locations/scenarios or have allowed me to choose a location and it’s worked out beautifully. Some I go back to more than others of course but I like having a long list of options and a short list of favourites. 😀

There’s a few things I’d love to try that I haven’t yet… if any of these spark something in you, drop me a line.

1. Intimate portrait of a woman starting her day

2. A family gardening, harvesting and then cooking together.

3. a homebirth somewhere light and serene

4. a birth in a hospital

5. pampered, glamorous you

6. A family playing and exploring in the woods in the rain

7. A woman and her dog

8.  A pregnant woman working (not tied to any specific work or idea of work)

9. A woman aged 75+ at her favourite activity

10. A man introducing his child to a loved hobby or passion, a place or activity that bring him joy.

 

What’s your ultimate photography scenario? You alone? Your kids? Your husband with your kids? Your home? A small field of flowers? The grocery store? A secret garden?

 

 

A mama and her two kiddos

This is a dear friend of mine and her two kiddos, plus the dog. I always think this is such a lovely thing to do, get pictures with just one parent or a particular friend or a sibling… something a little different than the usual family portraits… which I still think you should totally get. As often as you can afford/stand it.

Anyway, so we went to that old standby favourite- Pt Pinole and then played for a few hours and made some pictures! Here’s a few (okay, quite a few) of my favourites!
