Dance Me Very Tenderly, and Dance Me Very Long

Miss Jenna is a dancer and dance instructor and Ashton is the farmer who won her over with his dance moves.  We spent an evening together this summer and their love and tenderness for each other is palpable.

Feeling a Little Black and White

Perhaps it's because I'm feeling a bit moody tonight, because I'm usually a colour girl, but tonight I'm in love with black and white.

Also -these shots - the bride before the ceremony are my favourite.  I love the anticipation, the joy and all the other emotions that come with being a bride in the moments before you will become someones wife.  I've said it a million times before, I am a brides photographer.  Guys, I love you too, but on your wedding day I am living every moment through the eyes of your bride.

Our Hearts Call Us By Name

I read that line earlier this week and it rang so true.  I don't want to get in super deep about my spiritual beliefs or anything super heavy - not my style - but I know that when I put my trust in what I know to be true things work out, the world becomes a softer place.

My work and my work schedule are always evolving as I try to balance the work I love with all my other responsibilities and hobbies (my newest passion is flower arranging - I'm horrible at it but that's okay for now).  I was able to take some time for myself this summer and I'm so glad I did.  The world continues to whirr around me but I have been able to find a sense of balance and calm in the centre of all of it.

Last night I went out with a couple of good friends and made some beautiful images at the home some very generous, thoughtful, kind, sweet, and accommodating clients.  There are not enough nice words to describe the Clunie family.  Thank you Sharon and Meghan for your help!

Flag Day

If you follow my instagram feed you may have read that I had lost a cf card.  Yes it's still missing - even after going through the field on my hands and knees, recruiting any help I could, using a metal detector - it's still out there somewhere.  I have finally come to terms with not finding it.  I had a few sleepless nights over it but thanks to the graciousness of my clients all is well.

Last night we were able to redo the lost images and because we had a little extra time we played in the field with this streamer flag Janelle and I fashioned out of drift wood and streamers.  It was so much fun I'm pretty sure I'll do it again!
