the photography product analogy

you would never go into winners, buy a basket that comes in two different colours and while at the cashier ask her to throw in the other colour basket for free because they’re the same product, just in a different colour. that would be a “bit wrong and well kinda stupid” as the are separate products with separate prices. both baskets had to be made, processed and handled resulting in labor and time to make that product hence the separate price.

if you wanted another colour basket from winners, you would have to pay for that product, as you should!

so remember that original photographs, different preset photographs and black & white photographs of the same image, is the same thing as different coloured baskets!  Just because you can’t see or touch that product with your hands (the jpeg that is) doesn’t make it any less valuable.

these different colours ways are our photography product options, OUR inventory, our stock! is all made with time, processing, labor and of course a edited with love and made in canada (that part my friends is free but the rest, needs to be payed for)!

just my thoughts.

for only a moment i’m granted permission into these complicatedly beautiful families, full of fun, laughter and dynamics…

i observe,

i laugh,

i, for a few moments see your shells come off,

i see you and not your social persona,

i see the “isms” of your family,

i see the good, the bad, the beautiful and i want to document all of it,

i see you shining like a diamond, not your flaws or insecurities,

i’m there yet not…hiding in a way, waiting to snatch that split second of a moment that may never come again,

i see it in black and white but i don’t dislike colour,

i see the beauty in the ordinary, in the odd and the imperfect,

i see your life unscripted.

oh canada.

as the sun goes down on your special day and all the little tattooed faces get washed off , flags tucked away for next year and back yards are cleaned up from epic family gatherings, i sit here and think how lucky we are oh canada the great, to live within your borders and i just wanted to say thanks for a few things…

like making me feel safe at night,

being able to speak whatever language i desire and say what ever comes to mind without judgment,

for having some of the cleanest water in the world (out of my tap!),

being loved across the globe because we flash your name around,

for your gorgeous beaches, lakes and mountains, with skylines that we (mostly) take for granted,

being able to afford a doctors visit

and drinking beer at 19,

i will even say thanks for your CRAZY amount (almost, all year long) of rain because without  it we wouldn’t value our summers so much!

oh canada, i’m proud to take your name… thank you!

happy birthday.

mighty sea.

one part of you scares me, the other wants to explore every inch of your mysteries.

where is your end oh mighty sea?

no matter, i shall find it through the blustery wind!

for i am free here, to roam… safely in your cushioned, sandy highways and knee deep bathtubs full of living treasures.

today.

i.

have.

wings.

today.

i.

am.

free.

my little bull in a china shop

from the moment you were born, shit got real…you were never meant to be “normal”, whatever normal means!?  you my dear are the greatest love and my largest frustration i have ever felt.  yet i wouldn’t change one hair on that very large head that had to be vacuumed out of my vajayjay six years ago!

oh my littlest love…

you are a taurus through and through,

you still drink your “bubba” in my bed every morning,

you are emotional, so dramatic and you love the way food tastes (so does your mom!),

you love to play by yourself yet you say hello to everyone you meet or have met,

you are so kind, loving and a natural leader,

you make a mess like nothing i have EVER seen before,

you are  S T U B B O R N (sigh),

you sing (beautifully),

you imagine wildly,

you thrash around when you sleep (because your brain never, ever stops),

you are intelligent, far beyond your years!

happy 6th birthday my little bull!

xox mum

tell the truth tuesday!

i usually feel the urge to cry when a group of people are singing Oh CANADA (also while reading robert munsch’s LOVE YOU FOREVER or when someone else reads it or at the description of it or from saying the title out loud…crap, i need a tissue from  just typing it! dam that book).

how blessed are they.

i had one amazing vavo’ (grandma) when i was growing up.  sadly my other grandparents past before i got a chance to meet them.

this spring break got me thinking how unbelievably lucky my kids and (us) are to have both sets of grandparents alive and well (knock on wood), not only are they alive and well but they actually want to play, share and (sadly) spoil my children (yay for them, boo for me) when they are near them. this spring break they spent almost the whole trip visiting both sets!

i often hear from people how on earth can you spend so much time with your in-laws or my own family for that matter.  well personally, i think my real reason is (just like why i raised my kids from home) i don’t want to have ANY regrets!  i want my kids to know who their grandparents are and just how much they loved them.  period.

you know what, family is not always easy, you don’t always share the same views, opinions, vegitarian meal options, religious opinions (sorry mom)OR your kids behave like assholes (from all the late nights and sugar overloads)while their around them.  but here’s the thing, we are lucky, we are blessed and there may not be a “next” time as this crazy year has proved to me.  so i will share my time, my space and my life to make that happen whenever possible.

cheers to family. we put the FUN in disfunction (lol), kidding, it’s all pretty normal, i just couldn’t help adding it!
