facebook contestApril 15, 2011

i know, i’m a bit of a facebook slug. But i’m learning. It’s good for me to head into what i’m unsure of & slightly afraid of – the realm of social media. Oh my. So now there is a competition being put on by lovestruck bridal show in vancouver. There is only 1 prize & it’s a booth at their show in vancouver in october worth $1500. Very cool. The contest goes like this… we choose a photo we think best shows a moment of true love & then ask friends, family members, clients, friends of friends, anyone, to go to these 2 facebook sites:  lovestruck bridal showreflection events, hit the ‘like’ link on their pages, & then scroll down to my photo/name (the one below) & ‘like’ it (& comment if you feel inspired). The person who’s photo gets the most number of votes from both pages wins. So, if you have a couple of minutes & feel inspired, i am very grateful for your efforts in helping me win. Friends, indeed. And if you’re really inspired, you could ask your facebook friends to do the same. The more, the merrier.

the photo is from willow & joe’s hornby wedding last summer. I didn’t pose this at all. I was changing lenses & asked them to just ‘stand over there & be together’, & when i looked up, this is what i saw. True love. Such an honour to walk through their day with them.

have a great weekend!

waking up with eaglesApril 5, 2011

just after tess woke from her afternoon nap today, she looked out the window & said “eagles”. I went outside to take a photo & just as i started snapping, one of the branches broke & they all flew off. Rural living has it’s perks.
