Alex + Sherri

So a little over then a month ago I meet this amazing couple for a boudoir session. I really wanted to write something but I knew there was nobody better to tell their story then them. This is what Sheri sent me today. I’m sitting here crying , I totally have fallen in love with them both. I wish you both nothing but happiness in your years to come!

“I fell in love with Alex in 2001, before I ever heard his voice, before I ever seen him. He says the same about me. In 2001 there were 2460 kms between us. Alex can recall the exact distance, down to the last km, after all in 2002 he drove it in one day. I remember the night I seen him for the first time. I remember how he pulled me in and kissed me. Perfect. He stayed for a few weeks, when he left he was on his way to a base in Germany. Once there, he was to deploy for Iraq for 18 months. We stayed in touch through all of it. In 2005 he was returning to the states. It should have been our happily ever after… Almost a year had passed, no contact. I don’t know if fate intervened that day in April 2006 or if it was pure luck but I signed into an email acct I hadn’t used since he was in Iraq. Every email was gone, except one. He had sent me his SIN and told me to keep it where I wouldn’t lose it. There was the lonely email, stuck in the drafts folder, safe from the mass delete by msn. For four years we kept in touch, until January of 2010 when each of us within 10 days of each other endured traumatic events in our lives. It was an awakening. 3 years later, here we are. For the past year Alex has been in NY, he drives up here every weekend to see us. One thing that was constant through the years from 2001 was when we would recall our perfect moments with one another. It never seemed that there were words adequate enough to explain. Seemed impossible that he would ever see how much I loved him. And vice versa. Countless times I recall him telling me how he wished I could see myself through his eyes, that I could see how I am the most beautiful thing he ever laid eyes on. How everything else pales in comparison. Enter Julia Busato, we cried when we seen the photos. She captured those moments, the words, the feelings that we have tried so hard to share with one another. Each of us has our favorites, as we remember a touch or embrace in Julia’s studio that took us away to that perfect place in our hearts. These images are priceless. Thank you Julia for capturing all of it . ”

Sleepy Hollow

So this past Sunday a bunch of us really awesome yes I said it AWESOME ..lol Photographer friends got together to shoot a “Sleepy Hollow” themed idea.  We had some really amazing models come and man did they go all out! They where totally dressed to the nines with their idea’s of how they would look in the Sleepy Hollow town. The location was offered up to us by one of the amazing people that belong to our Guelph Photographer Facebook Group. Jackie and her really fracken awesome hubby Perry.  They even laid out some spread for us and let me tell you by the time we where done shooting we where all hungry and ready for a hot beverage!Now about half way through this shoot our fearless host got tossed from her horse who had lost his balance on uneven ground. She hurt her knee and yet didn’t want us to leave so we stayed and finished out our shoot. ( We wish Jackie a speedy recovery)

I would love to thank all those that came out and took part of this amazing fun , exciting , tiring day!

What A Weekend

So this past weekend I had a get together of friends , family and just all around awesome people in my life.

I have no seen some of these peeps for a bit now and have been missing them a bunch!

So Saturday night we had a pot luck dinner/house warming party .. wow TONES of great food and good tasting drinks and the laughter of my friends filling my house just made me so happy it’s hard to put into words.

I totally feel blessed with the friends and loved ones I have such a amazing weekend… thank you so much guys I really needed this connection with you all!!
Sunday I went to the beach with my lovely man , Susan (part of my boudoir crew (hairdresser) and her man. We had a blast and spent the day enjoying the sun and each other. I may have enjoyed the sun a little to much for it not only kissed my skin it jumped all over me and left it’s mark! Yes I was not smart into not wearing sunscreen. I’m just starting to feel a bit better skin wise today it’s finally slowing down on being hot and sore.. still red in places though!

 

Here are just a few shots from my run in with Mr Sun on Sunday..lol

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

L.O.L

Lots. Of . Love

Julie And Chris

This past Sunday Morning Julie and Chris came to my home studio to have some couple boudoir shots done. Well I have not done those in some time so I was very excited with the ideas I had for natural light that I get in my bed room. I wanted to portrait something touching , intimate, loving , suggestive, sensual and almost voyeuristic feel to it.  I feel very passionately about my work and feel like I’m in some sublime serial bubble of art and excitement when I get to do work like this. This is what I feel my strong suit is in photography… the artistic flare to nudes and boudoir shots. I LOVE everything I do but this niche really gets me high.

So saying that when I wake up yesterday and find that not only is one of these photos reported for violating some face book agreement I found out on my fan page for these photos (which has a 18+ filter on it) there are more photos gone that seemed to have offended someone with in hours of my posting them. This makes me sad and a bit angry at the same time. I think face book should either come up with some “ART FRIENDLY” filter or be this hard on everybody with their photos at the beach and teens in their bathrooms with bra’s on … come on this is art and compared to the stuff I see on there I’m really shocked at the looky loo’s reporting it as porn or offensive.

I really don’t want to whine or bitch to much this shoot was amazing and the couple was fantastic to work with … I really want to thank them for me twisting and turning them into pretzels..lol You two did a amazing job and the real feelings of love and trust really come through the images we got.

Good luck in your journey you take together and may you always have wonderful Sunday Mornings that you can be in love, laugh and naked in bed together!

Peace and Respect

Aka “The Envelope Pusher”

The Photo that started it all!! …. what a way to spend a Sunday Morning!!

Here are some of the ones with did with Studio Set up lighting.

 

Karate King

So we finally got some snow to go out and play in. J.F let me talk him into posing for me with his karate gear. Off we went to find the “perfect” location and me not being as much as a perfectionist as some photographers I know about locations we actually ended up finding a great little spot that I would actually love to use again.

Poor guy dealt with really wet cold feet for most of this shoot… thank goodness it was only about a 30 min shoot. We ended up getting some great sun light along with my flash to get some pretty awesome light I thought. I love how these turned out… wish it was not so cold to set some of them up better but as photographers we deal with time lines ALOT and do what we can in those moments…. well this moment worked out fantastic!

Thanks to J.F for posing for me and being a champ with all the cold!!

Peace and Respect

Here is the one Speed Light Set Up
