PHOTO OF THE WEEK #21 - Early Sunset

I thought I would remember to post my photo of the week yesterday after the vendor show, but I was much too tired to remember. So here it is a day late.

This was taken with my phone while I was walking back to the house at about 4:15pm. Seems so early to be seeing such a beautiful sunset.

CLIENT SHOOTS: A Morning With Mrs. Claus

If you've been following along for a while now, you will know that this will be our third year at the Women's Christmas Showcase of South Simcoe in Tottenham.  It will be our third year doing photos with Mrs. Claus.

Prior to the actual vendor show, I do a little session with Mrs. Claus to help everyone get into the spirit of things.  Since this was our third time, I changed things up a bit and borrowed a couple adorable little girls to help us out.  They got to spend the morning with Mrs. Claus.

It was a fun morning and I think everyone had a fabulous time.

I am excited to be working again with Shelley Barlow, Ginette Stone and of course, my Ben.  This year we are providing your Portrait with Mrs. Claus on a disc at the show.  There will be a minimum donation of $5 and part of the proceeds will be donated directly to "My Sister's Place".  You will also have the opportunity to order Custom Mounted Gift Prints and Christmas Cards as well as purchase Gift Certificates.  So please stop by to say hello and have your portrait taken with Mrs. Claus.

Thanks for looking and I hope I see you at the showcase!  There will be a lot of fabulous local business women there.

CLIENT SHOOTS: Baby on the Way

This is one that I should have posted ages ago. When I was in BC this past summer, I was lucky enough to see my cousin Michael and his wife Yayoi. They were expecting the arrival of their new baby around the time that Ben and I were scheduled to return to Ontario. 

I had been hoping the baby would show up a bit early so I would have a chance to photograph their precious newborn, but that didn't happen. Fortunately, I did convince them to let me take a few maternity portraits. :) 

These were taken at a family get together and were VERY impromptu. The setting was my Aunty Arlene's beautiful garden.


Less than a week after I was back in Ontario, Hiroki was born.  I love seeing the photos and videos on my cousin's Facebook Timeline of their new baby boy.  He's such a cutie.  :)

Thanks for looking!

ON THE BUSINESS SIDE - 4th Anniversary!!

I'm finding it really hard to believe that it has already been 4 years since Picture Your Life Photography was officially 'born'.  I am so very lucky.

When I get to this point each year, I put together a photo video of some of the people, pets and events that I've photographed throughout the year.  Unfortunately, I can't include everything, but if you've been following along, you will have seen the ones I've been able to share online in my various blog posts, facebook posts and newsletter updates.

Here is the video.  If you are going to view it full screen, please make sure your settings are set to 720p.

Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support me.  I love you all! :)
