Catching up

Well it has been quite a while since I last posted and of course the urge to post occurs when I'm spending time at my parent's house with my baby, away from my computer and files but thankfully with an internet connection.

Post baby I've shot two weddings. Labour day weekend was with the new Mr and Mrs Shawesome (aka Adele and Kevin) up on beautiful lake Simcoe. The bride wore a gorgeous low-back sheath topped with vintage jewelry and a birdcage veil. The ceremony was performed at the end of a dock and the reception was a good old fashioned pig roast!

Segway on roast pig - the 'pig dance' is one of the Macedonian traditions I got to document at this past weekend's wedding for Theressa and John. The day started with a morning Macedonian dance party at the groom's house complete with live band and ended with the bread-pull (to determine if the bride or groom is to become the head of household - think giant wishbone but with a bread), and the pig dance where the wedding guests share their good wishes ($) as a roast pig is toted around the banquet hall. All of this, along with a stunning bride and dashing groom, made for a great day of photos. But you will have to wait to see those. They will be posted under the recent weddings section the end of this week. The other wedding is up.

Since the last post I've also done a few family portraits and lots of team photos and headshots for the University of Toronto varsity teams. A highlight was going out on the water with the rowing team to capture them at practice. I also got to do some cool shots for the women's soccer team. It's also great to be able to bring my daughter to many of these shoots. I just park the stroller beside the backdrop and shoot away while she naps.

So needless to say, I'm not exactly on maternity leave - no such thing when you run your own business. With nurturing a newborn and work I've never been busier, more tired, but also never been happier. Stayed tuned for photos from all these things I've mentioned. In the meantime here's one photo - and it's not even by me. This photo was taken by my friend Matthew Lyn. Nice to actually appear in a family photo for a change!
