Lidia from Oh So Posh must be one of the sweetest, most heartfelt, unselfish people I’ve ever met! Only I’ve never met her. But she has a way of making you feel like you’re met her! She is constantly having sales and giveaways and won’t hesitate to teach you exactly she gets those gorgeous photos! And she’s done it again; she’s giving away a Nikon D90!
Now, I woudln’t call myself a Nikon girl, but truth be told I’ve never tried one, and I certainly wouldn’t turn down a free one! It would most definitely solve my dilemma of not having a back up camera for weddings!
Anyway, I’m just posting to let you know about this great giveaway, if you yourself would care to join!
The Reverie Blog for Photographers is having another awesome giveaway in the Holiday spirit!
If you’re a photographer, or know one, you may want to take a look!
I had the pleasure of taking some family photos for one of my best friends in the world! Their property was so beautiful and there were so many places to choose from that we just ended up wandering around all over the place. I had lots of fun guys and I hope you love your photos!
Now that I’ve finished editing all the photo shoots I’ve had (phew!), I’ve decided to post some more! It was so hard to choose which ones were my favs because I loved so many of them! Here are just a few..
Here are some photos from my session with the beautiful McQuarrie family from Thanksgiving weekend!
The St.Thomas train station proved to be an awesome location! I hope you love them Amanda!!

I was only a guest at my cousin Krystle’s wedding but I managed to get some photos to send her way. I have yet to hear back from her as she is enjoying her honeymoon at the moment! Lucky girl. This is the first wedding I’ve shot so any feedback is welcome!
Congratulations Krystle & Ed!
I spent quite a bit of time tonight designing and drawing a new watermark. I love it! I drew it out by hand first then scanned it. Fooled around in Lightroom and wasn’t getting the effect I wanted, so I drew the whole thing in Illustrator. Then I opened it in Photoshop to create both a black and white version, both with 100% and 50% opacity, and saved it as a png.
Let me know what you think!
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.
