Counting My Blessings

This fall I challenged myself to photograph the beauty along the parkway but change it up. Meaning to really see it in different ways. Take photos at different angles and areas. I feel so fortunate to be so close to nature where I live. It's a good way for em to end the day.

Giggles in Stereo


                    Photo by Stacy Kaat

What do you do when you need a good head shot? Call on a photo friend of course. I needed a current head shot for an upcoming article about my business. I thought of Stacy, since we had recently reconnected through facebook.

We used to shoot weddings together a thousand years ago. We made a great team. Can you imagine these two shooting your wedding? We had a great time and it showed in our photos.

Being way more comfortable behind the camera, I needed to photograph my friend. Normally, I  do my own head shots but there's a vulnerability in allowing someone else to photograph me. Plus, it's always a good exercise for me to be in front of the camera, to remind me how my clients feel. And, it was darn fun. This is the image I chose for the article.

They also included one of my photos for the article. The online version does not have my mug but the paper copy did.

Java and Hazel

I've known sweet lil Java for 9 years. She is a playful, smart Cockapoo that loves her Hazel ( sassy kitty) and her parents. Java spends her days playing, hanging out on your lap, giving paw shake and high five among other fun tricks.

Inside the Studio of Jean Smaglik Wells

        Sugar Skull collection a limited edition at Colectivo

I had the opportunity to photograph Jean in her studio. Such an interesting process that just starts with a block of clay and ends up such a beautiful art piece that can be enjoyed and used every day. Say Buh Bye to boring white dishware.

Check out her working here.

Shop here.

My dear friend, Laura, a insanely talented artist and yoga instructor, wanted photos of herself in yoga poses in the Bayview area.  I love her style of yoga, it flows, it's a challenge, she doesn't take herself too seriously, AND she has a sweetness that lights up a room.
I was  on an evening walk lately and I was so inspired by our shoot, that I did some yoga poses out in nature.

Wanna join her for a class?
She's in Bayview.

Saturdays 8am. at Saffron

Wednesday 6:30pm at Beulah Brinton
