I took this of Cynthia before our last Headshot Marathon while I was testing out the lighting in the studio.  For those who don't know, Cynthia is my main make-up and hair stylist.  Love working with her!  :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #19 - Halloween!

It was difficult to choose which Halloween photo to use for the Photo of the Week.  I always like to try and get the neighbourhood kids in the studio on Halloween before the trick or treating begins.  They all looked fantastic.  One of Ben's friends came along with him this year.  How could I not use this photo for this week....

Yes, that's an Alien trying to play Minecraft on an iPad.  hehe  So much fun.  :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #18 - Pumpkins!

Unfortunately, I only have a bad phone picture of this.  But, it's more about the event and the memories than the actual photo.

We usually go every year to this place near home to pick out our pumpkins.  Ben was not in a very good mood that day to have his picture taken.  But he humoured me....somewhat.  :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #17 - Hold my hand

I love a good sunrise.  Pair up a great sunrise with some awesome clients and you get a fabulous Fall portrait session.  This is one of my favourite photographs that we made together that morning.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #16 - One of his favourite foods

While in BC, Ben was able to consume a lot of one of his favourite foods.  Cucumber sushi rolls!!  He had a favourite sushi restaurant, just down the street from the hospital.  Our Uncle Butch introduced him to it when he took him there for lunch to give him a break from the hospital waiting room.  They were really nice there and when I took Ben a couple of times after that, they remembered him and asked how his Uncle was doing in the hospital.  I'm not sure if it was the quantity of cucumber rolls he always ordered, or his long hair that made him most memorable.  ;)  hehe

Oh!  The name of the restaurant is Kadoya - 1063 Davie Street.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #15 - On a Plane

Week #15 in year 5 of my 'Photo of the Week' project, found me on a plane bound for BC.  It was an unexpected trip to see my brother, who was in the hospital at the time, and the only camera I took was my phone.

I always love seeing the mountain view from the plane when flying back to my home Province.

PERSONAL - 2013 Tottenham Santa Claus Parade

I'm always so slow with processing my personal photos.  But just over a month isn't too bad for me actually....LOL

Every year we go to the Santa Claus Parade in town.  It's usually cold and windy, but if you dress for the weather, it's not that bad.

This time, just before the first sign of the parade could be seen, the snow blew in like a blizzard!  And then.....just as that first police car and fire truck came down the street, the snow disappeared.  Perfect timing.

I always take WAY too many pictures. I can't help it.  So I know this is long, but if you're local, you might see someone you know!  :)

CLIENT SHOOTS - Daddy's a Firefighter

I featured this little precious bundle in my newsletter last year and on my Facebook Page, but didn't blog about her.  I loved doing this session so much!  Daddy is a Firefighter, so we had a lot of fun with that theme.

These are some of my favourite images that we created during the session.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #14 - Terry Fox Run

Ben runs every year in the Terry Fox Run at school.  Raising money for cancer research is important to him and the rest of the family so he always raises quite a bit.  I'm very proud of him for taking the run seriously always trying his hardest.  The distance gets further as he's gotten older and he hasn't complained (at least not to me....haha).

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #13 - Cool Gifts

When I posted this photo on my Facebook timeline, one of my cousins made this comment:
This picture reminds me of Uncle Pete "hovering" over us when we were kids trying to get his hands on the cool gifts he gave us!
How fitting that these were given to Ben by Aunt Phyllis.  :)

This will only mean anything to my family and some of my friends, but that's what makes it my 'Photo of the Week' for week 13.
