Togetherness in Tofino – 10 on 10

Ok, so I have been sitting down here trying to find the words to describe a recent trip to Tofino I took with 6 other wonderful women photographers. I truly do not have the words to convey the experience had there and whatever I say will not do it justice. But I will try…

Our group formed after the Shutter Sisters retreat last year in Palm Springs. It was a great retreat for me and even more so as I met women photographers I was following online and it was so wonderful to connect with them in the flesh.

The camaraderie and inspiration I get from these women are special. We speak the same language through photography, our creativity, our passion. These women inspire me, they are good friends without us having spent much time together. Truth is spoken with them and much fun is had. They remind me to own it all when I don’t feel like owning my photography or anything else sometimes. Cherish, I AM OWNING IT ALL, every single piece of it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

As a group we decided to start a 10 on 10 project, 10 pictures posted on the 10th of each month. As you will see I cheated by posted a tad more than 10 pictures, I could not resist!

Sibling Love

My kids are not the touchy feely kind. They will not approach you freely to give you a kiss or a hug. They are just not like that and I have come to accept it. They do however have their moments of pure intense love when it is given in pure abundance. I enjoy these moments most when I see the love and friendship between these siblings grow.

Little Aram

We have been travelling in London and France as of late. The best part of my trips to Europe is seeing my family and spending quality time with them. I miss them and it is a joy to see my nephews and niece and give them full on kisses filled with my auntie love.

Here is my sister and brother in law’s, Taline and John’s son, Aram. He is such a happy boy. It was his first try on the swing that day and I was there to capture it. There will be so many firsts for you baby boy. Life is so exciting and I hope you get to explore it to the full. I will be joyfully following your adventures. Love you to bits little one.

A day well spent

I was getting antsy. I felt like I was not taking enough pictures and if I was taking pictures it was mostly with my iPhone. I wanted to feel the big camera in my hands, I wanted to feel like a photographer again. So I decided to be kind to myself and instead of feeling bad about it I simply took my big camera and starting taking pictures. I had forgotten to take pictures of my everyday, after all this was a special day. It was a day that I was spending with my girl, she in a great mood and I the same, the weather good, we were making little jokes and laughing over eating mango. So I simply took pictures and some magic happened, at least my magic. (and she even managed to take a portrait of her mama!)

More love

DSC_0527 webWith the passing of each day, my love for this girl grows. When I don’t think I could love her more, my heart expands a teeny bit and gives room for more.

An afternoon walk with Tifanny

I met Tifanny at the park on a warm sunny evening just in time to catch the golden light. This girl is stunning, inside and out. She has a very quiet and serene presence with a bit of mystery. I am finding that I love taking portraits more and more, trying to catch the many faces that we have. The camera really captures the different characteristics of a person as sometime it is in that fleeting moment that our truth is seen.
