It's the day of the year I take the most photographs of my own clan. More than Christmas, more than their birthdays. Today will be no exception.

Here are a few from recent years . . .

Sometimes wonderful thoughtful gifts require a little planning. Picture the face of a grandmother unwrapping a beautiful framed portrait of all her grandchildren. Picture a mothers face when she realizes that her husband has managed to surprise her with beautiful portraits of their baby (she will forever wonder how he pulled it off without her knowing!).

Photography is a wonderful gift and a custom portrait session is ideal for that person who has everything. I promise they don't have this!

The Christmas deadline this year is fast approaching. For guarenteed Christmas delivery of framed prints the SESSION deadline is NOVEMBER 5th..

I have very few dates available before that deadline.

If time slips away from you, don't fret. Gift certificates are available anytime, even possibly Christmas eve, if I'm not busy wrapping presents. :)

This was a framed peice that was opened to much delight last year . . .

A trip to Halifax

I am now back from a small trip to Halifax. The trip was to see my dear friend Amy marry her longtime beau Craig. The wedding went without a hitch (that I could see) and both Amy and Craig were stunning in their fancy wedding gear. I did take some photographs of the preparations, thankfully she had another great photographer to do the real photography. I did manage to get many nice images of Amy getting ready, and will share one or two once I get them all back (some are colour).

I also was able to introduce my youngest to his grandparents. This was a blessing as my Mother-in-law has MS and is unable to travel these days. Baby is not shy one bit and gave many well received hugs and such and was all around awesome.

and a little wheelchair peek a boo . . .

My little guy . . . is all about the growl and wrestle . . . as long as he continues to serve it with a side order of hugs and kisses I can handle it.

Community Gardening

This summer we were part of a community garden. It included 8 families and was a lot of fun. We grew potatoes, carrots, onions, tomatos, beans, herbs, lettuce, cucumber, beets and peppers. Some things did better than others, but I learned so much about growing vegetables that teeny tiny peppers don't bother me in the least! Next summers crop is sure yeild twice as much.

I took a few photos throughout the summer and just put them up in a flickr account to share with my fellow gardeners.
