PHOTO OF THE WEEK #43 - A Moooose!

I'd been to Algonquin Park in the past, to camp, but the first time I went just to take photographs was with Daytripper Photo back in April 2009.  What a great trip!  And I went with Bryan again in 2010.

Last year I changed it up a bit and went with some friends.  That was a great trip.  No sunrise, unfortunately, as it was too cloudy.....but we saw 7 moose last year.  This year I went with friends again and Ben came with us too!  He bought his first camera with his very own money just after Christmas, so he didn't have to borrow one of mine.

I took quite a few photos on our trip that I really like, but even though the moose is all scraggly looking......I have to say that the moose is my choice for my Photo of the Week for last week.  I was worried that Ben wouldn't get to see a real live moose and would be very disappointed.  But even when we hadn't seen one by the time we had our picnic lunch, he said he was having a great time.

I wish I would have had time to get a picture of Ben photographing the moose, but the moose didn't stick around for very long.  This was the only moose we saw.  If you look closely, you can see some of the snowflakes that were falling that day.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #42 - It's A Pass!

I was a bit worried that I had forgotten to take a photo last week, but I found a few on my phone.  The options I had to pick from were pretty slim......  There were a few of the cat that our neighbour found (who was returned to her family..YAY!) that I had taken to make a quick poster to post online and in town .  There were a couple of Maggie looking out the window beside the front door, longing to go out and play with Ben and his friend.  And then there was this one.....

PROMOTIONS: Still time before Father's Day

While I decide which photo to post for my 'Photo of the Week', I realized I didn't post my Mother's/Father's Day special on here. There's still time before Father's Day to have some awesome portraits taken for that special man in your family.

Just click the picture above to view it larger. Thanks for looking!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #41 - Colourful Eggs

These are the eggs that Ben coloured for Easter.  He doesn't get too fancy.  He just likes to have a lot of different colour eggs.  I think he accomplished that!  :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #40 - Vintage Collage Frame

If you've been following along for a while now, you'll know that I love doing square collages for my newborn and children sessions.  I've even done my 'Faces' collages for some 'Picture Your Sweet & Sassy Self' sessions.

I've recently started to offer handmade, vintage frames from a Canadian supplier.  I bought a sample to use to show clients.  Here is a quick photograph of it that I took a week ago.  I purchased a black one for myself, but the frames come in a wide range of colours, sizes and shapes.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #39 - Local Flour!

A couple of weeks ago I finally made it over to K2 Milling. Yes, a flour mill right in Tottenham! :) They are on Industrial Road, #55 I think. But just drive down Industrial Road almost to the very end (it's the last building on the right). I don't think we ever actually saw the building number we were looking for, and it felt like we'd gone too far.....but we hadn't. We finally saw the little sign in the window. This is what I got on that first trip.

I've never been so excited about flour before. Who knew there were so many kinds! I've since been back and picked up some multigrain and some oatmeal as well. Check them out. They're open on weekdays from 8:30 to 4:30.

Thanks for looking!
