Eva's Birthday Party

Our Sweet Pea had her first birthday celebration with all her friends this weekend. Mommy and Daddy put on a back yard BBQ.
First birthday cake made by Mommy
 And yes I was there too but forgot to hand the camera to Mark. But I am sort of in the reflection in Mark's sunglasses.

Saskatoon Photography ~ Baby Bumps

A beautiful morning to be capturing this new little bundle and her parents.
Alicia and Aaron are expecting there second daughter this December. They lost their first beautiful baby daughter Lylah moments after she was born just last December. So there is much anticipation surrounding the arrival of their little "rainbow"

 I got quite a kick out of Aaron ~ I can only imagine the fun this little girl is going to have with her Daddy!
Photos will soon be added to the web site for Aaron and Alicia's family and friends - password protected.

Pure Joy!

I am madly uploading the days photos which include an engagement shoot today as well as photos at the park with our Eva. The salmon is baking in the oven as I type. The timer is on and everyone is hungry.
But oh my, I just have to show you this photo of Eva and her Grandpa. No edits - no time!
We love this little one so much and would do anything for her!!

Truely a moment of pure joy! For all of us. I am not sure which I love more - Eva's expression or her Grandpa's.

I have so many more shots of this fun time and some fabulous engagement shots too that I can't wait to share with you. So please stay tuned.
Alas I have to work this week, Bible study tomorrow night and a baby shower I am hosting on Wednesday night.  I am making a diaper cake but ran out of elastics!
Sooo that means I will have to show them to you later on this week because some where in all this busyness I have to sleep.
Beeper went off - salmon is ready - got to run!

Pausing to Give Thanks

161. The glorious colours of fall. Leaves wither and there is a symphony of hues that bless my heart and cause me to be in awe of His Creation all over again.

162. Cool mornings. Digging out long forgotten sweaters and loving them all over again.

163. The Holy Spirit. Reminding me of who I serve. Keeping silent when I choose to serve myself.

164. Photography - my way of turning all this energy and mind busyness into something beautiful, peaceful, thoughtful, memorable.

165. Passion - it is such a motivator! Gets me in trouble sometimes. But generally is makes me very productive.

166. His provision. When life looms unstable, uncertain, He is stable and certain. I can count on that.

167. Health - I am reminded of late to never take my health for granted. Carpe Diem!

168. Time Machine (a Mac product). It found all my original South Carolina photos from 2010 that I recently discovered I had accidentally deleted a year ago. And it found them in 30 seconds and replaced them in 2 minutes. Thank you, whoever invented time machine.

169. Lightroom 3- it applied all those time consuming edits I made over a year ago to those lost and found photos as fast as the photos were reloaded. Wowsers!

170. Some of the simplest things in life bring such pleasures ~ like open faced egg salad sandwiches on multigrain buns. We made them today for a church picnic...and they are delicious.

Eva B&W

Two photos taken of Eva this past week showing her more serious, thoughtful side.
She is growing up and we are loving every moment.

This doll she is holding was her mommy's favorite doll when she was little.

I have been inspired by a few new textures so thought I would play in Photoshop while I wait for 677 wedding photos to upload from Lightroom to my client's file and also wait for that 4th load of laundry to upload to the basket from the dryer, preferably folded.
Okay I may have to get up from my chair for that one. Ah.... Sunday afternoons mean laundry. It also means a Rider game - I get up from my chairs for touchdowns and chicken wings too.
Here is what I came up with using yesterdays 365 shot of the sun setting on our fair city.

 And now I am thinking about tonight's 365. hmmm any ideas? I may have to get out the macro and look for that ant that Angie requested.
I am also craving a milkshake.... I think spicy wings do that.

More textures are here
