Farewell 2016

I can't recall a year that made an impact quite the way that 2016 did in so many lives.  Personally, I had moments that were filled with joy and excitement (taking Zoe to her first day at university), and moments that were scary and sad and left me feeling incredible loss (taking Zoe to her first day of university). 

Throughout the ups and downs of 2016, I was lucky enough to witness moments that reminded me that we are all part of a big family of people who just want to feel love.  My job is to capture that love for the families that I visit, and I can't imagine anything I would rather do.

Zoe was home over the holidays and we spent time together drinking green tea and picking out some of our favourite images from the 2016 sessions to share in my annual slideshow.  We had such a good time looking through the images of families I've come to know, some over many years.  We even shed a tear or two over a few shared memories.

So, farewell 2016.  Love it or hate it, it was quite a year.  Despite what some may say, I have proof that it was a year filled with love.

A Little Shout Out to My Inspirational Friend Joanna Track, and her Life changing news service, “The Bullet.”

If you are a Canadian in business you’ve no doubt heard of Joanna Track.   An incredible entrepreneur, Joanna has spearheaded several successful ventures, such as the popular Canadian brands Eluxe and Sweetspot, with which most Canadian women (who haven’t been living under a rock) will be familiar. She then put her efforts toward a marketing and consulting firm called “Good Eggs & Co.” which not only provides consulting for small businesses (like mine!) but helps other entrepreneurs and contractors connect with one another. 

As if this wasn’t enough for one powerhouse woman to accomplish, Joanna decided to take her passion for providing digital content to the next level. Joanna has recently launched a new project called “The Bullet”, a Canadian news publication delivered daily via e-mail that provides a concise, abbreviated “shot” of important news to your inbox every morning. The Bullet makes reading the news fast, easy and totally mobile, which is essential in my fast-paced life. It's a quick, fun read and a perfect way to start my day. I love knowing what's going on in in world events, with an extra bit of attention paid to our home and native land.  And now I actually know what teams are doing well in sports that I don't follow.  Excellent for dad chats during shoots. :)

I love checking my email in the morning and finding The Bullet in my inbox.  It makes reading the news fast, easy and totally mobile, which is essential in my fast-paced life. It's a quick, fun read and a perfect way to start my day
