no wedding this weekend...

...but plenty of excitement!

I was happy to shoot two families, both returning to me after about a year for their 2007 portraits! Daniel, you will find in my babies section of my website - he'll be graduating from that section soon as you can see below. Ella is now a toddler and soon to be big sister. Also I finally got to meet the notorious Cocoa, Cherilyn and Ken's chocolate lab.

I've also included some family portraits from two weeks ago - the wedding work sort of overshadowed my blogging. Welcome Bryon family to the Imajing galleries! And welcome back Feeney family - last time I saw them they were a family of three. We had fun recreating some of the shots from two years ago with new baby Sophie.

Carol-Ann and Matthew

Congratulations to Carol-Ann and Matt! Carol-Ann looked gorgeous in her gown from Lowen Pope and Matt was beaming - even more so than his usual self. The whole event was as Matt described, seamless and stylish thanks for Carol-Ann's efforts. The venue was the Art Gallery of Hamilton and the group portraits were taken at Whitehearn Estate. They made for a truly radiant couple!

The rest of the photos will appear at under the Recent Weddings section in a few days.

Encounters with nature...

I just got back from a short camping trip with Fred and Kafrey. We went to Killbear Provincial Park and in the brief three days and two nights there, saw a deer run right through the next campsite, saw a black bear wander right towards our campsite (and then hustle away after Kafrey barked and I yelled - this is at 6 a.m. of the 2nd morning), emerged from torrential downpour completely dry thanks to our new tent, and wondered what the heck that mysterious noise was in the middle of the night (both those were on the second night).

I found a link to the weird noise here (cut and paste):

Can you guess what creature that is? There were two of them, having a conversation/fight whatever and it went on for what seemed like at least 5 loud minutes.

No photos of the wildlife encounters as they all took me by surprise - didn't think to take a camera to bed and I wasn't about to run to the car to get it while the bear was sniffing around.

Eventful, fun and too short! Here are some photos from planned activities!

Oh, the noise was from two Barred Owls: The Barred Owl, latin name Strix varia. The call of the Barred Owl is one of the easiest to identify because it sounds like a cross between a dog barking and a rooster crowing! (info adapted from Too bad we had no idea what it was when we heard it!
