PHOTO OF THE WEEK #47 - Let's Go Fishing!

I'm quite late at posting this one.  For week #48, the photo is from our first camping trip of the year.  If there's camping, there has to be fishing!  He is sooooooo white the light just glares off his body.  ;)

This fish is small, but he was still excited to catch it....finally!

Thanks for looking!!

I'm starting to do a little bit of catching up with my blogging.  Even though I do feature clients in my newsletter, I like to also include them in my blog as well.  This little cutie is Finn.  His parents are awesome and I loved having them in the studio.  Ooooh his little baby lips.  :)

Thanks for looking!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #46 - Mother's Day Loot

Ben made me some awesome stuff for Mother's Day.  That thing underneath the SimCity game is a book of poems he made for me.  He told me that he "worked on the flowers and vase and the book of poems for THREE whole weeks!"

Well.....I loved it all.  :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #45 - My Ride Warrior

Ben LOVES rides.  The faster and higher the better.  The fact that he always tells me he's afraid of heights makes absolutely no sense! LOL

We get Season's Passes to Canada's Wonderland and a couple of days before the park officially opens, they have a Season's Pass sneak preview night.  We went and Ben had the most amazing time.  In the first 40 minutes, he went on the Leviathan 7 times.  It was awesome for him.  At one point there was a teeny tiny line that had formed.  He said he didn't want to wait and wanted to move on.  I told him that this would be the one and only time where the lines would be this SHORT!!  (The one time he went on the Leviathan last summer, he waited in line for over 2 hours)

In total, he rode various rides at least 24 times that evening within a 4 hour period.  It was kind of crazy!  I'm so glad he had a fun time and didn't have to wait in long lines.  One time, he was even the only person riding the Drop Tower! :)

Here he is having a snack break.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #44 - Mooooooooose!! :)

So just over a week ago I went on my annual trip to Algonquin Park with friends and Ben to hopefully capture some cool nature images.  Of course, we always hope for a beautiful sunrise, but that didn't happen for us again this year.  But that's ok, because we still got some beautiful shots that day.  :)

And yes.....we did see Moooooooose!!  We also saw a wild turkey, but he ran away faster than we could get the cameras out.  (But we can see those in our backyard, so we weren't too sad that we missed him) I'm always worried that Ben will be disappointed if we don't see any moose, but so far we've been lucky enough.  We saw 3 this time.  In one spot we saw 2 together.  In another, we saw one who was quite happy to stand there enjoying his drink from the stream for a VERY long time.  People came and went and he/she was still drinking, sometimes pausing to look up to see if we were still there gawking.

And here's our moose model posing.  I just love those EARS!!

If you're interested in joining a group on a photo trip, check out Daytripper Photo.  I was first introduced to this type of trip when I joined Bryan and his group of instructors on his Algonquin Sunrise trip a few years back.  No driving and you receive instruction on the way there and back as well as during the trip.  Plus...you get to try out all kinds of lenses that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to try out 'in the field'.  It's a great trip and I highly recommend it.  Be warned that you have to get up VERY early so you can get up to Algonquin and set up in time for the sunrise.  But since you don't have to drive, you can snooze a bit on the way up.  ;)

Now that Ben is old enough to do things like this, it made more sense for me to gather together with a few friends who always enjoy Photography and make it an excuse to get together.  Plus, it's fun to do something photography related with Ben.  He had a blast and said it was his best day ever.  :)  (Although I think that might have now been trumped by the Canada's Wonderland season pass sneak preview night last Friday when he rode the Leviathan 12 (yes TWELVE) times, along with over another dozen times on his favourite rides in a 4 hour period.)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #43 - Birthday Cake

This isn't a great technical photo, and for most, it's not even that interesting..... really, it's just a cake.  But, it's here as a 'Photo of the Week' because I was so lucky to be able to take this in person at my Mom's 65th surprise birthday party in BC!!  :)  Woohoo! :)

You can see the little bags of cheezies and the scratch ticket that was at every seat.  Two of her favourite things.  I think she actually scooped my bag of cheezies!! ;)

It was a quick trip, but worth it for sure.

Thanks for looking!
