PHOTO OF THE WEEK #4 - You're my BFF!

Some of my family and friends may have seen this one already on my personal Facebook profile, but how could I not choose it for my Photo of the Week from last week?!?! They really seemed to enjoy sleeping in a tent together for the first time. :)

Thanks for looking and if you are fortunate enough to get a long weekend this weekend, enjoy!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #3 - Happy Birthday Maggie!

Last week, Maggie turned 1 year old!

We made her a birthday cake and Ben decorated it. And then he decided that she should have a birthday party. So he went around to her neighbourhood doggie friends and invited them to come over for cake and play time later that afternoon.

3 of Maggie's doggie friends were able to make it on such short notice. Ben was very excited and was quite the little party organizer. He wouldn't let them have cake until after they had their playtime. He had a schedule!

So here's a picture of Ben cutting up the cake. He wanted to have a closeup of the cake in it too, so I added that in the top right corner. It's a happy face (in case you couldn't figure it out) ;)

Definitely a moment to remember from last week! :))

Thanks for looking.

CLIENT SHOOTS: Cute Scarlett

Earlier this week, Scarlett visited my home studio. She's 1 year old and as cute as can be! I swear that in this first outfit we did pictures in, she would stop and pose as soon as she thought I was focusing the camera on her. Was sooooo adorable.

She has gorgeous eyes and those two cute little teeth make her smile ever so sweet! :) Here are a few more images from her session.

Thanks Eve, for bringing Scarlett over. It was great to finally meet you both! :)

Thanks for looking.

MY COMMUNITY: Help The Kids Play Slo-Pitch Tournament in Tottenham - July 2011

What a great weekend the ball teams had for the Help The Kids Play Annual Ball Tournament in Tottenham. What is Help the Kids Play (HTKP) you ask?? HTKP provides funding for registration and/or equipment that will enable youth (under 18) residing in the Tottenham and surrounding area to participate in organized sports or other activities that will enhance their personal growth and well-being. Pretty awesome, eh?? :) All funds raised at the tournament go directly to HTKP.

The Slo-Pitch tournament was held on July 8-10th, and was based out of Coventry. There were 3 Leagues participating in the tournament: Tottenham Old Timers, Tottenham Men's and Tottenham Ladies Lob Ball. There was also a special appearance by some of the Alumni players at their game on Saturday afternoon.

I had a lot of fun taking photos for Help The Kids Play that weekend. Unfortunately, I didn't get photos of all the teams or all the players, but I think I did capture a decent sampling. Here are a few highlights.  To view larger versions of any of the images, just click on them.

Pitching is an important part of the game. While most pitchers appear to have a similar delivery, you will find that how they stretch, reach, lean, step and release the ball does differ a bit from person to person....

And, of course, hitting is important as well....

Don't forget about the running, catching and throwing too!

Sometimes, as a player, you don't get the ball you want, or balls and players get by you. It's part of the game....

But if you're prepared and you play hard, good things can happen!

Safe or Out??


The diamonds were very dry, which meant A LOT of dust.

Wait for it..........

This isn't all of the teams, I missed getting the Men's League teams except for the All Star team.  You can see that the women's teams have a lot of fun!

What a great weekend!  :)

For details about how the tournament ended up, check out their recap HERE.

If you were playing in the tournament, information about how to get digital copies of your pictures will be coming your way.  Once the download gallery is completed, there will be a link sent and instructions for download.

Thanks for looking! :)

Last weekend I took photos for the Help The Kids Play tournament. What a fantastic weekend. It's only right that the Photo of the Week from last week be from that tournament.

I'm planning on doing a separate blog post to feature some more images from the weekend of ball fun. :) Stay tuned. But for now.......

Thanks for looking!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #1 - Another Canada Day

Wow! Last week marked the start of year 3 for my Photo of the Week project. I can't believe 2 years are already completed and I can't believe I haven't missed a week yet! :)

Last week also marked another anniversary of sorts. It was one year ago that I quit my full time job to focus more time on my Photography business and family. So far so good!!

I kind of like that the Photo of the Week project always starts a new year off with Canada Day celebrations. :)

I hope you all enjoyed your Canada Day weekend. I know I enjoyed mine. :)

Thanks for looking.
