This is definitely not anything gourmet, but I'm telling you -- going gluten-free is tough, and the best way to be successful is to BE PREPARED! Have food hanging around that you can actually eat, and you'll be less tempted... Continue reading

From Shannon's Trash the Dress session last summer: A quick update I realized I haven't posted this picture, my favourite picture EVER, from her trash the dress photoshoot. Carter is so cute too! Puppy love for sure. copyright 2011 Continue reading

Two days. Two blog posts. There is something going on in the world ..(there is, actually - I have an assignment due and am procrastinating madly). I talk a lot about compost soup. Some people call it "Clean out the... Continue reading

Well, hello again! I can't even pretend to be surprised anymore that it's been so long. This really is a two ingredient pumpkin muffin. Kind of. So I guess not really, but really. Are you confused yet? 2 Ingredient (Incredibly... Continue reading

Miss Megan says she feels tall, with long and lean legs. These shoes have a light capricious summery look to them. The large flower offsets the dark heaviness of the chunky platforms and they allow just a peek of the painted toes. The brass studs are a subtle but important accent and gives them a hand crafted feel. The heels are towering at 5.5 inches but being chunky and with the platform she says that they are easy to walk in. $39 from winners on bloor st in toronto buys a lot of happiness. The older ladies either love the... Continue reading

Hello again! I've been busily working away at Shannon's Trash the Dress photos, but took a little break for Shelby's graduation last week. It was the shortest, fastest photoshoot I've ever done!! We had about 20 minutes to shoot before she had to leave for her pre-ceremony group photos. Yikes!... Continue reading

Well, as usual, the blogging gets left by the wayside, but the photography continues on! This is Shannon's storyboard for her Trash the Dress photoshoot this past Sunday. We had a great time shooting and even managed to miss the heat of the day! For most brides, trashing the dress... Continue reading

I had to make a special triptych for Feenstra, mainly because these three pictures just went together so well. Feenstra is a bit of a character, so that's another reason I put this together :) Click on the picture to head over to my Flickr Photostream, where all of the... Continue reading

Happy day-after-prom! I have just started editing photos from the prom shoot yesterday. They are lots of fun! It's hard to keep a consistent editing style for them all, since some are really much better in my typical warm, bright style and others look better a tad muted. You decide... Continue reading

Hi all! I've been going through some older photos I have of other people's children. Children whose pictures I have permission to post on here, that is! This adorable little girl is Lily. She was less than a year old when I took her pictures, but she was a total... Continue reading

I took a little break from wedding album design today to put together this storyboard. The stars of the show are Noah and Grace, two of my kids. They are not super fans of each other :) Noah is the middle child and was the little prince of the family... Continue reading

It is 'fun with blogboard' day here at home! Had to do another one in between dishes, laundry and yardwork (I believe the saying is "after the ecstasy, the laundry"), and decided to do a board that shows some of the things we saw while driving to Madrid. The backstory:... Continue reading

It's Megan today -- for once! Got these boots on ebay from Ellie's Shoes for $30 (shipping included). I wore them for Mark's Birthday. They are a plastic-y kind of material, but honestly they are SO comfortable. There is even an arch support in the sole of the boots. Mark wants me to tell you why these boots are cool: because they are PINK BOOTS. Ha ha. There is a little platform so that the heel is a comfortable height to walk on. The heel is high, but not crazy high - about 5 inch heels. And they have that... Continue reading

We are snowed in here in Southwestern Ontario, so what better thing to do then make donuts! (Actually, I can think of a few things, but this was a good option :) ). Mark and I's favourite Tim Horton's donut... Continue reading

The brownies are really good. I just keep throwing things together and hoping they turn out. I did a banana bread a couple of weeks ago that was really good, too. I think that recipe had xanthan gum it in, but I lucked out and found a really cheap source for it. The Chia seed can be bought at the Bulk Barn, and it seems to be a pretty good binder.
