My husband and I were in North Battleford last week-end and we were able to fit in a quick visit with friends (we missed you there S.) They have 4 beautiful girls…yup, there’s a lot of pink in that house! Thanks for the coffee & visit R., it’s no wonder you can’t stop smiling on that new Harley!
We had a nice little blizzard in April (the day after we hauled the bikes & sidewalk chalk out and packed away the winter coats & boots) I took this picture at 11pm.
The next day, there was a robin convention out my window…
Gotta love Alberta Weather!!!!
I don’t have a good track record with plants, so to my amazement, my Christmas Cactus actually bloomed! That’s a big deal in my house and required a 30 minute session with just me, my blooming cactus, and my camera.
For the first time in a long time, I took my camera with me for a road trip to Vermilion. There was a time when I didn’t even want to pick up my camera unless I was taking pictures for someone else. Not because I didn’t enjoy taking pictures, but because it felt a bit like work.
When we decided to take a quick trip to my home town of Vermilion, my first thought was to pack up my camera and document our trip. I packed it up without even thinking about it, and only when we were 1/2 way there and I had already taken 100 pictures through my car window, did I realize how long it had been since I took pictures simply for the joy of it.
Since attending the workshops and finding a network of fellow shutterbugs, I have started seeing life through the lens in a new light. I’m reclaiming my love for photography in a new way. I used to think there was a “right” or “wrong” way to take pictures and if I couldn’t do it “right”, I wouldn’t do it at all. Now, I’m finding motion blur, sun spots, and low-light situations fun and inspiring! I didn’t even pack my flash!!!

April Trip to Vermilion
Our assignment this week was to to take pictures of 5 subjects and pose them in different ways. I decided that since I was taking pictures already this week, I would use 5 “still” objects.
I will preface these pictures with a little background on my subjects. Mr. and Mrs. Piggy McPiggerson have a set of twins and have also adopted a goose (I did not have 3 little piggies). They wanted pictures before moving off their family farm as they do not feel that it’s a safe environment to raise their children. I have to agree…

DLS Family Assignment
Two cutie pies came over for pictures this week-end. Dressed in their hockey jersey’s, they played Nintendo DS together from across the room (oh the technology!). Dylan had a very creative gaming pose (check out the picture below). Here’s a few pictures from the session ?

My husband feels sorry for my kids, as I’m the family paparazzi of sorts, ready to take the picture at any moment that I deem “special”. I still maintain that they’ll thank me for it later…
