fabulous friday challenge

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Happy Friday everyone! I haven't taken many photos lately, so instead this week I thought I'd share a selection of my favourite shots from a recent wedding. It was a beautiful wedding on a day with iffy weather. It rained for a bit, then the sun came out just in time for photos and then under threatening clouds, a beautiful double rainbow appeared. It was a pretty fabulous and inspiring day.

Thank you Emily & Jon! It was without a doubt one of my favourite weddings.

fabulous friday challenge

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Is anybody else struggling with the change in seasons? The shorter days are meaning less time for taking photos. I had to reach back a bit in the archives to the middle of August. I took this photo of the boys at sunset with my iPhone. It's one in an upcoming series I will be posting.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for linking up.

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week.

Here's another shot from last week's shoot. The kids weren't really into it but we got some good shots. It's kind of hard to tell, but our paintings in the background have the spooky Scooby Doo eyes going on. Or at least they are supposed to.

Time to share. I can't wait to see what inspired you this week.

Fabulous Friday

I'm trialing a new look and feel starting today. Just some minor tweaks here and there. I'd love to know what you think.

project life - how to create interactive layouts

Are you doing Project 365/Project Life? This is my fourth year in a row and as time consuming as it is and no matter how far behind I am in my blogging, I still take my photos every single day. It is a project that has consumed me and I just can't seem to stop.

Every once in a while I insert iPhone screen captures of current favourite songs or weather forecasts to fill some gaps or make note of a significant event. The result is a pretty fulsome snapshot of a year in the life.

Despite the number of photos I take, I still beat myself up for not taking more video of the kids. I find myself wishing I had more footage of them as babies, the problem is that ripping videos to DVD and creating menus is time consuming and I have a big enough job processing photos and creating layouts for my photo books. And most importantly videos can't be incorporated into my photo books.

Or so I thought until I came across a brilliant pin on Pinterest. A pin that will revolutionize my photo books and bring them to life.

Instead of taking a photo of that moment where your beautiful child skates up to the boards at hockey practice and waves to you and journaling about it, capture it on video, create a QR code and insert it into your layout. Relive that moment with a quick scan with your smartphone instead of digging through a pile of unlabeled DVDs (because let's face it - you're not going to do it).

Here is the moment I will be using for today:

day 190 - sunshine and muggles

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Today was our annual trip to Goderich. It was a beautiful sunny day and nice and cool near the water.

Our one and only attempt at geocaching was foiled by some unsuspecting muggles who out of ten empty benches along the boardwalk felt the need to sit on the bench we were searching under and around. Grrr.

It was a day full of sun, sand...and testosterone. Who beats the crap out of each other with water noodles? My sons apparently.
