This is the second year I’ve been the photographer for this family and I love the photos so much! Both years we used their property for the location but each year has been unique. I can’t wait to see what … Continue reading →

I was commissioned to do the illustrations for Guelph’s Festival of Moving Media – it’s like TIFF, but Guelph size.
I had to post the poster here since Facebook absolutely ruins images and I wanted you to be able to get up close and personal. Click on it. Twice. It’s so beautiful when it’s large :)

Here are some of my fav. photos from my first attempt with the props I made, as well as a photobooth! I don’t think it turned out half bad ;) I’ve since bought 2 more backdrops (one plain white and … Continue reading →
Tonight I pickled cucumbers and beans from our garden! They are all dill at the moment, although I did get a recipe for mustard beans from my Grandmother that I want to try. I’m very excited to taste the final results and see if I can in fact make a decent pickle. I’ll let you know the verdict in a minimum of three weeks.
Here is the recipe if you’d like to try it:
Into a quart jar put 2 level tbsp. pickling salt, 1/2 c. white vinegar, tip of tsp. alum, dill on top and bottom of jar, 2 cloves of garlic, 3-4 cukes (or other vegetable of your choice). Fill jar with boiling water, seal and let set for minimum 3 weeks.
Also, something very interesting happened. You can’t see it in the photo as it hadn’t developed at the time I took the pictures, but my garlic has turned blue!! I googled it of course thinking that I had done something wrong and ruined the pickles, and found this really interesting article on why it happens. Personally I found it quite charming and I think I’m going to make a point of doing it every time. It can be my signature thing. :) I’ll post a photo later.
