Avi and Robert Photo Shoot

Over the weekend I had the great pleasure of photographing a beautiful couple as they anxiously await the arrival of their first child. Avi and Robert were wonderful and so fun to photograph. I could feel the excitement as they prepare to become parents for the first time and the love they have for each other. While the day was a bit gloomy Avi and Robert were all smiles.  

I can't wait to meet the baby in the next few weeks - - I know there are a lot of people waiting for the call that baby Killip has arrived!

Getting Back in the Game!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. I have certainly been neglecting my blog the past few weeks but I have a lot to report. 

First thing - something not from my list, but non the less AWESOME.

I ran the Spartan Race last week. It was a 3 Mile run with 15 obstacles at Fenway Park (for my Canadian Friends that is where the Red Sox play…it’s Baseball). I ran every stair in the park, carried 30 pound sand bags, rowed, climbed walls, crawled under walls and so much more. It was an amazing experience. One of the things I really liked about it was I never got bored. I often struggle  with boredom while running, especially as the cold weather moves in which takes my running inside. Physically, I can keep going. Mentally I stop.  This race did make me realize that I have it in me and seriously can do anything. 

Over the next few days I can’t wait to share some new recipes including; macaroni and cheese bites, and pumpkin chocolate cake with a vanilla cinnamon glaze, tell you about my trip to the ballet, and share a sneak peak of a photo shoot I did with an amazing couple expecting there first baby in just a few weeks.  Stay tuned and stay warm.

Two Years to GO...

Today marks exactly 2 years to fulfill my 30 before 30 list. While it seems like a long time I think I am a little overwhelmed with everything I will have to accomplish in two years. I am going to try and focus on the ones that cost little to no money in the coming weeks and as I begin to write my final paper for school that will get the business plan off the list as well.  

Cheers to a year of fulfilling these goals, relaxing, smiling and having fun!

The First of MANY?

Warning: This blog post does not have anything to do with my 30 before 30 BUT it is exciting. Well at least for me!

As I begin to look for more creative outlets I have began to really take my photography more seriously. One of the things I have started to work on is putting together a portfolio. In order to do this I am asking friends and family to “hire” me to do family photos, maternity photos, fun photos, engagement parties, ect. I put hire in quotes because for now I am doing this for no charge on the hope that word of mouth will get my name out and I will be able to do this on the side.  (Yes, I still want to complete number 17 on my list and write my own business plan to start my own event planning company)

This week Ben’s very dear friend M invited me into her home to do some family photos. The kids were being silly, having fun in the hippo ball pit and being overly cute! It was also nice to get a few pictures of M and her Husband E.

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

Thank you to all my readers for your support as I begin the photography journey, or at least as I enjoy the creative outlet that it provides!
