You guys should know how these blog posts come together. Usually, after editing all your pictures, resizing them, uploading them to your online gallery, making your DVD and e-mailing you about it, I’ll start choosing images for my blog. I’ll upload all images I want and then I just leave the post with no text, as a draft – if you’re not familiar with the blog world, this means you won’t be able to see posts that are drafts.

And although everybody gets a “draft” on my blog, not everybody goes “live”. It’s not because I didn’t like the photo session, it’s just that since I’m editing your pictures during the weekdays and, as soon as I’m done with your photo session, there’s another shoot to edit, it’s really hard to find time to write a text for all these drafts. I tried not writing a text for some posts and I just don’t like how the blog looks like with no text (and it also seems I don’t care).

Some of these drafts are soo old that it doesn’t make sense to post them anymore. Sometimes, because I don’t remember the story of the people I worked with, sometimes because I already have a brand new photo session at that same location, sometimes because I do focus more on couples and weddings here, so families photo sessions almost never make it to the blog.

I’m talking about this because these past days I started cleaning up the blog and I decided to browse through some posts that were actually published. Then I just started wondering about all these faces I’ve seen: do they already have a baby?; he must be such a cute toddler by now!; I wish I had more e-sessions on different locations like this one; will she make it to Hollywood?; etc, etc. I meet so many people every year and I can only imagine where they are now.

That’s not the case for Levente and Rachelle. I will be shooting their wedding next month so I still get to see them again. :)

They chose the Distillery District as their E-Session location and although I already lost count of how many times I’ve been there, I still love that place. It has everything a photographer could ask for – there’s so much to look at that I still find places I have never used before. I’m completely in love with these images!

This is one of my favorite maternity shoots ever. The light during that day was amazing and the location – the Botanical Gardens in Oakville – was just perfect. I had a great time with Camilla and her dear husband and son. Such a beautiful family – I’m pretty sure that by now little Tyler has arrived to brighten their days even more!

Everyday I take Melody to a park close to my place. Yes, the joys of being a photographer: I can work at home and make my own schedule. Of course, life is not a bed of roses: while everybody is chilling on weekends, I’m out working. I can’t complain, I’m paid to do something I love. Time flies while I’m at it. But I think it’s pretty obvious that I do miss my little girl every minute I’m out. And although I get to spend my weekdays at home, I’m still in front of the computer looking at thousands of pictures.

Going back to that park I was talking about – one of these days I noticed a bunch of teenagers talking, laughing, close to where we were. And all of sudden it hit me: I am getting old. When did that happen?! When I had a job from 9-5 I used to be the youngest of everybody. Now I get to shoot Bar Mitzvahs, sweet 16s and I just feel O-L-D. I definitely have to replace my Junk Food t-shirts for some more serious wardrobe soon. It’s funny when I look at the mirror I still see that 18 year old girl, but I must have gotten old, I’m sure. I just don’t notice the wrinkles. I wonder if that happens to everybody.

Anyways… here we have Bryan and Pareesa (just love the sound of that name!). They look like they came out from a clothing catalog – so cute! They match, but it’s not that obvious match. It just looks good. I recently posted a winter shoot from the Brick Works, so you might feel a bit of deja vu seeing these images. ;)
