My Boy.

So. My baby will no longer be a baby in less than a week. He's turning 1 and I just can't seem to grasp the fact! I have no idea where the last year has gone and although I have had the honour and pleasure of spending every day with him this last year, I still don't know how the time has flown by! I'm not ready! I still want him to be my little baby! And although I do know that he is and always will be, I think I have finally started to understand what mom's are referring too when they talk about how quickly they grow and how quickly they become independent. I'm so excited to see his personality continue to grow and evolve but at the same time, I want him to be dependant on me forever!!! lol, silly huh?! But there it is!! So I have posted a recent photo we took while I let him play on the window sill, he just thought it was the coolest thing and here he is saying "Look at me! I'm so big!"

Sweet Pea.

I had the honour of shooting this gorgeous little girl on Saturday.  She was born two weeks ago now and her mommy had just done her belly shots! I think she knew what I was up to as she was a little camera shy but she eventually let me take some shots! I did the baby pics of her big brother Noah, who is now over a year! He was so patient waiting his turn to be photographed with her. You can tell he is just in love!

Photo Art 2009

So every year I enter Photo Art which is a photography competition open to amateurs and professionals located in the Halton Hills area or members of the HHCC. I am also a volunteer on the committee and this year I got to design the slideshow presentation on awards night. That was pretty fun and definitely new! There are several categories and I managed to snag a few awards!

So here are the images that I won awards for! 

The judges were so hard on this image!! haha, well, they didn't score it very well....but I spent hours and hours creating it so I needed to show it off somewhere!! This is Sienna, born back in Oct 08 and the hand belongs to me!
This image titled "Gerbera Shine" didn't win any awards but it made it to the gallery wall to be displayed all month at the Halton Hills Cultural Centre.
This image titled "Charcoal Gaze" won 1st place in the "Creative Digital" category. It's also a self portrait!
This image taken on vacation in Puerto Vallarta this year titled "Mexican Cathedral" won 2nd place in the "Scenery & Architecture" B&W category.
This image of my little sis, titled "Duchess" won 3rd place in the "People, Creatures & Critters" colour category.
This image titled "Daydream" didn't win any awards but it made it to the Gallery Wall and is being displayed all month with the winning entries.
