Winter Was Unexpectedly Productive

Winter was “unexpectedly productive.”

I spent most of my time indoors, either by myself or camped out on the couch with the hubs. We spent days powering through Netflix and cooking crazy delicious meals.

We winter hiked, we travelled to Costa Rica for New Years, we didn’t do a single one of the projects listed on our house DIY list, but we did talk about them an awful lot.

I did yoga. everyday? It’s probably not everyday but it’s close to that and that’s an honest estimation.

I snuggled, I ate, I walked (when it wasn’t freezing), I stretched.

I started to let go.

That was the “unexpectedly productive.”

That was the work.

That felt really freaking good.

Now that it’s Spring, I’m anxious for warmth.

I’m not just sick of being cold and having to pack my wool socks wherever I go.

More than anything, I’m ready for deep, golden contrasted light. I’m ready to use it and try the thing that’s been brewing in my head for so long.

I’m ready to exhale all that inner work, just to bring it right back in again.

I get it now. It’s fuel, not fire.


Feast Your Eyes On My Professional Food Photography!

The winter months are about getting organized and gearing up for Spring. As a photographer with a jam-packed summer schedule, this means taking some time to get my hard drive files in order and updating my website with fresh new content.

As I sort, save, purge, and reminisce over the past 7 years of photographing weddings, events, and commercial promotional material, I can’t help but be reminded of what a delicious time I’ve had!

Food photography poses a real challenge, but once you figure out the balance of natural light needed and your preferred style, it comes with ease. I tend to keep my food photos minimally styled, real, and of course, tasty looking!

I’ll consider this post a living document and as I come across more of my favourite shots, I’ll add them here.
