Run for the Cure 2009

Hey folks, I'm participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure this year!!! It'll be my third time being a part of this great cause, and I'm extremely honoured to be representing the women in my life that have been affected by this disease; it's the reason why I do this every year.

I also do this for my friend Nelly and her Mom. I'll be a part of Letty's Angels and for a change, we'll be going to Richmond Green this year. It's going to be great!

Please donate and support a good cause :) Blog readers/stalkers, now is the time to show some love. Thank you & much love.

***Hey guys, please remember to sponsor me for the Run that's happening this Sunday Oct. 04! ! It's for an awesome cause, and I'd appreciate any donations. Thanks again :)

Elvie & Jayesh Engagement Session

Elvie + Jayesh = AWESOME! I mean, seriously. They're just that cool ;P I had the pleasure of shooting their engagement session a few weeks ago at Main St. Unionville. We had originally scheduled the engagement session for July - but rain, clouds and wind dampened our chances of getting anything accomplished :(

We managed to reschedule and as a result, had an amazing session :D Even though we chose probably one of the busiest days of that week to shoot (there was a Jazz Festival going on) and the hottest!! HOLY CROW we were all melting!!! But we churned out some pretty great images! (Thanks again for the ice cream guys, it was much appreciated!)

If you read my previous teaser post, you may remember that they brought their dog Sheba with them. SOOOOO cute!! I totally recommend bringing any furry companion to your engagement shoot!

Love, love, love :)

I'll end this post with my absolute most favourite engagement photo...EVER! Smokin' HOTNESS!!! *cough cough* Jayesh - get this one enlarged for your house ;)

I'll be shooting their wedding next week and I'm all sorts of nervous :O I'm working with a pretty rad couple afterall! Guys, I can't wait until next Saturday!!!!!! I'm so excited and honoured to be part of your big day :) Much love.

***Added bonus: (don't kill me J for posting this photo...hahhaha) If you were wondering where Sheba was when I had my one-on-one time with Elvie & Jayesh....may I present to you, the Dog Sitter :P I think you might have made a new best friend J ;)

Stress Relief

Okay, I admit I'm a few blog posts behind with my shoots, but they're coming! It's just been a whirlwind of a month for me and I'm just getting a chance to breathe a little again - phhewwww....

With my full-time work, part-time photography and side projects, I sometimes forget to take a moment to myself and I can let it get the better of me. So when I feel really stressed out, I bake :) Like Martha Stewart style, but perhaps not as anal in its entirety. I mean, presentation is one thing, but for me, it's all about how it tastes and the final devouring of the baked goods :) (I'm totally an emotional eater...mmmmm!)

Tonight I decided to use up the bag of apples that Lez gave me and I baked an Apple Crumble Pie :)


So I kind of burnt the top of the crumb, but it still tasted pretty good :) Most importantly, I got to relax for a couple of hours. Yay me :D

***Stay tuned for Elvie & Jayesh's engagement session post tomorrow ;)

The Poladroid

If only this were the real thing; it sure is close enough though. Gotta hunt down the actual film now. I must go out & play ;)
