Beautiful couple – congratulations, guys, and thank you for the opportunity to capture your love on camera! The wind and weather were not in our favour, but we did it! :) Hope you love these!!!

I was at the NKOTBSB concert last night and it was over the top amazing, it hurts my heart. I got home at 12:30am and went to work this morning feeling like a zombie. New Kids on the Block stole the show in my opinion. I’m hooked on them.

I didn’t bother bringing my big camera and spent half the night figuring out how to work my point and shoot. I really didn’t remember how. The zoom was brutal. This was as close as I could get without producing complete crap photos. Nonetheless, a memorable concert that’s comparable to the Spice Girls comeback concert. Good enough to bring me to tears.

You can’t be everything you want to be before your time.” From yesterday’s photoshoot. Cutest, cutest, cutest boy ever. What a pleasure to take his photos. I’ve been editing these sneak peeks for the past hour with a smile that I can’t seem to wipe off my face. I adore him!!! It was such a headache to pick which photos to post. Thank you for a lovely time, Chantea. Hope you like these!

“One of the very few reasons I had any respect for my mother when I was thirteen was because she would reach into the sink with her bare hands – bare hands – and pick up that lethal gunk and drop it into the garbage. To top that, I saw her reach into the wet garbage bag and fish around in there looking for a lost teaspoon. Bare hands – a kind of mad courage.” -Robert Fulghum

Took my mom out for a Mother’s Day photoshoot. :) Isn’t she cute?

because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness; and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbour’s except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ; and to spend as much time as you can, with body and spirit. These are the little guideposts on the footpath to peace.” -Henry Van Dyke

More from Saturday’s shoot.

WHAT A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE, both in work and in life. The past two business trips have been phenomenal and I am so, so, so grateful for these opportunities. We worked our tails off and I am exhausted and I am about to get sick, but I am high off of these experiences. Amazing, amazing, amazing and all worth it.

The photos below are from the Montreal Bell Centre with our Eastern sales team. It’s supposed to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to skate on this ice. I know nothing about hockey but I definitely knew how to appreciate something like this. I was in awe, running up, down and around the arena like a little girl in a candy store. I even ran onto the ice with my Uggs on. And then I decided that I had to borrow someone’s skates and actually skate on the ice even though I don’t know how to skate. More photos tomorrow.

Boyz II Men concert. I miss the 90’s so, so, sooo much.

I think I’m being punished for sneaking in my big camera. I was caught and told not to use it but I obviously still used it. I got home, super excited to load the photos to my computer only to find out that almost half of the photos were corrupted. What the crap? I’ve been through far too many of these freak photo-damage/loss accidents to panic, so I’m nice and calm and running a recovery on the card right now to try and bring back the dead files. If it doesn’t work, I’m going to call SanDisk and throw a fit. The corrupted photos WILL be recovered one way or another. Don’t mess with my pictures!

I’m back from the best business trip yet. Dare I say that it’s a tiny bit better than my fashion trips to Manhattan at my previous job? Can you even believe that? The most hectic and stressful and tiring, yet the most fun. I’ve never seen this side of the sales world, that could explain my explosion of love. Young daytime superstar professionals and nighttime party people. You absolutely couldn’t find a better group of people to work hard and party with. Words cannot express how exhausted I am though. I’m ready to pass out a hundred times. Montreal is next!

Photo below is half of our Western sales team at Ranchman’s. The other half was on the other bus, en route.
