Daily Diptych: A Smattering of October

Posted by on Nov 29, 2015 in Daily Diptych | No Comments

Alright guys, this is where my daily shooting all fell apart. So sad. I forgot my camera on a trip, lost my lens cap so that I couldn’t throw my camera in my purse, and just got too busy with client work. So many lame excuses. But this was our October: My current favourite scarf. […]

When Ria was three, I didn’t send her to Preschool. I didn’t see the point, I was home with her and she was learning like a sponge. She got lots of social time with other kids, so…why would I pay for preschool? That’s when people started asking me if I was homeschooling my kids (not […]

I’ve had the joy of photographing Nora even before she was born, and then again as a newborn. She’s getting so big and has the sweetest smile (although we had to work for it on this windy fall day). You can tell that this is one well loved little girl
