Snug as a Bug – Gananoque Newborn Baby Photographer

I’m just finishing up editing a session and it happens EVERY time. I fall in love with the wee tiny nose and the wee tiny fingers and the wee tiny baby faces all over again! So allow me to indulge myself for just a minute to post these two images…

Joyful Silhouette – Gananoque Baby Photographer

Sometimes you don’t need to see detail to see joy! I love this spontaneous image I captured of my friend with her little boy by the pool.

Loving the Summer Sun!

Through the lens of a 10 year old

I had the most LOVELY Saturday afternoon. I went to the 40th birthday party of one of my dearest friends since highschool…. and he introduced me to his niece, my newest BFF. She’s 10. She told me right away that she was going to be a photographer (well, that and a dentist- she knows that […]

Portrait or Landscape- how do you see the world?

I was getting a critique from another photographer (a very experienced photographer -one of my photography heroes – Christina Craft of  www.funkytownphotography.com,) and she noted that many of my favourite shots are shot in portrait orientation (4 wide x 6 tall) and she was recommending taking more in landscape orientation (6 wide by 4 tall)….(my dad says the same thing about many of my images- his reason is because landscape displays better on a computer monitor) but as the day progressed through discussions, we realized that I may actually SEE the world in different dimensions than she does.

 I’ve added two photos here that are similar in pose, yet different in composition… and I’m still reflecting on the differences that exist simply because I turned my camera.

I know that I find myself turning my camera on its side very frequently- sometimes the shot just ‘feels right’ that way- I’m trying hard right now to really THINK about the photographic decisions I make as I go, to try to understand and define my own style. 

There is always room for a different point of view … or Another Perspective if you will… I just wondered, which way do you prefer to shoot?  What influences your decision? Is there some elemental difference between the two?

....for more on why fluorescent is SO VERY WRONG

really… I warn you all … (especially you yellow cyclists from my most recent post) …it’s a slippery slope… you bring a little bit of fluorescent back, and next thing you know some poor little 13 year old girl will end up looking like THIS!!! Really, spare her the pain, learn from my poor choices…. stop the fluorescent before it takes over!

Balcony Bicycle Paparazzo – Gananoque Photographer in the Big City

“The Village” Church and Wellington- Toronto- a wonderful, colourful neighbourhood with many sights.  I was there for a photography workshop, and one day decided to take my camera out onto my 4th floor balcony to see what I could see.  I wasn’t sure what exactly I was looking for, but I waited until inspiration struck.

Are YOU talking to ME?

Are YOU talking to ME???

I posted just the baby picture from this side by side on my facebook page yesterday- asking for Captions…. people responded overwhelmingly with quotes from The Godfather.  I had to see the resemblance for myself, and sure enough…. this little boy has got some Brando in him….

My favourite quote so far threatened I might find a ‘My Little Pony’ head on my pillow!   If you have any other caption ideas… share away!
