52 Week Challenge - Week 25 and a Little Sneak Peek

This week's theme was "swing".  Yesterday I was fortunate enough to spend a beautiful sunny morning with a really fun family and managed to get a little swinging action.  We had a blast walking around the gardens at the Experimental Farm.





If you would like to play along, next week's theme is "Red & White"

52 Week Challenge - week #23

This week's theme was party.  One of my daughter's school friends is moving to Germany soon so we decided to have my daughter's Birthday Party a little earlier this year so her friend could attend.  Thirteen year old girls are unbelievably noisy and uncooperative so i actually didn't take very many pictures...my husband and I sat outside and enjoyed the quiet while the girls gave each other manicures, ate pizza, popcorn and lots of candy and watched a movie (sort of...most of them were gossiping instead of watching :))

Twice the fun - Ottawa Newborn Photographer

What's better than a visit to the studio from a newborn?  A visit from two of them!  I had such a blast with this adorable set of twins and their super cute older brother!


What a proud big brother!









 I love how you can see the difference in their sizes in this picture of their heads


 Mom had this awesome idea of trying to create a yin/yang type of photograph.  I love the way it turned out!

52 Week Challenge - week 22

This week's challenge was "looking in" or in my case it was more of a looking out (I took a few shots out my bedroom window).  My son has been wanting to start his own business cutting people's lawns and pulling weeds so my husband took him outside to teach him how to use the lawn mower.  The poor guy doesn't weigh much so had a hard time pushing it...he was a real trooper and did most of the lawn without any help!



if you would like to play along, next week's theme is "Party" which is perfect timing because we're having my daughter's Birthday party next weekend
