Coo Chi Coo Contest!

So this session was the winning session from our latest draw at CooChiCoo. The prize was a free session with a framed 8x10 print. Thanks to Michelle at CooChiCoo for helping to fill out so many ballots.

It was a great winner with perfect timing with a new baby due only a few days later!

Here is a sneak peek for mom, since I have to postpone our proofing meeting to hop on a jet plane . ..

WIth proud big sister.

I love this. Baby getting to know mom. The look of love. :)

This dog trying to get through the cat door = funniest thing in a long time!!

Halifax sessions

I just wanted you all to know that I am currently booking sessions In

The following dates are available: Sept 28/29. The exact times will be
negotiated once all sessions are booked. I will be booking the slots until
Sept 18th.

All sessions completed in Halifax will have finished prints delivered in
time for Christmas. This is great news, because portraits are a perfect
Christmas present for those hard to buy for types. Consider a wonderful
portrait of all the cousins . . . if you can arrange that without Grandma
knowing about it it is guaranteed to be a great Christmas morning.

If there are any questions, e-mail

Thanks, and please pass this along to anyone you think may be interested.

A few quick ones of mine

A few from a recent roll or two of my kids. I tend to take a lot of snapshots with the Holga camera. Sometimes even in colour! I'm considering starting to develop my own colour film. Not printing, too many variables, but I think I could handle the film part. My next order of darkroom supplies will likely include the gear and chemicals to try it. As I tell the kids . . . the first step to doing is trying!

Nanny is a rower at the regatta. Go Nanny! Nanny didn't win, but not for lack of effort!

Another from the Regatta. Uncle was happy to spin her around and around . . . and around.

Boy distracted by baseball. We were on our way to the swings but never made it.

First day of school. Guess the grades!

The best big sisters let baby brothers ride their bikes.

Lastly . . . me 4am at a recent birth. Excuse the out of focus. I didn't take the picture!

Last week was a week of wee ones. Here are some favorites:

Newborn from a recent maternity. So sweet, reminded me of my oldest when she was born. Mom sat back and let me do my thing which is always nice. I just love what I do, it is simply fun. Like playing with dolls when I was a kid.

With her brother. Note his hand in his pocket. That was very intentional as he was trying to close the lid on his sister! That pocket kept her safe. :D

And with her 10 week old cousin. I love this one. I hope they grow up to be best friends. No pressure. ;)

Another babe. This little guy was 9 weeks old. Sleepy and sweet. He was very clearly adored by his parents.

This one is funny. Like a behind the scenes *how to take a baby's picture*.
