i like to call it multi-tasking.

< < this is for my sister-in-law who says i don't blog fun stories anymore .> >
here you go sari.

tonight i'm editing photos.
and listening to music.

it helps my creative flow.
i happen to be obsessed with glee.
i don't care.
judge me.
get over it.

they did a version of Beck's "Loser" song.

as i'm clicking away i'm totally rocking out singing...
"I'm a loser why don't cha kill me."
which by the way is so morbid and disturbing all at the same time,
yet i'm rockin it like it's my song.
which by the way it's not.
let's not get the wrong idea here.
i'm rocking it because GLEE sang it.
which by the way is AWESOME.
did i mention that i love GLEE?

anywho...i digress.

i'm singing the section that goes something like...'re a matador....
i'm a loser baby...soo why don't cha kill me.

and i start thinking...are they singing to a bull?
who's the matador?

get crazy with the cheez whiz???

i'm a driver?
i'm a winner...


i'm getting very confused by the lyrics
and i'm starting to blame my turkey hangover.

so i decide to do this:
write down what i think it says:

now i've decided that it doesn't say anything about a matador...
i think this is all about soy being a bad guy!
i mean come on...if you've watched food, inc. we all know that soy is totally a predator.
that could make sense.

but if soy is a predator, why are we getting all crazy with the cheez whiz?
((scratching my head))

so, like i always do when i get my self confuzuled, i hit up google.
and google says that the lyrics are:


translated in spanish: i'm a loser

there went 30 minutes of my life.
now, i really do feel like one.
back to editing.

you're welcome sari.

happy dance

it's kinda my thing.

i bust it out on special occasions such as this...

...a midweek photo session with perfect weather, great setting,
awesome family, natural smiles, the whole sha-bang.
the perfect ingredients for a happy dance.

and yes, i totally did.

they get their good looks from me.

forget that we aren't actually blood related.
that's just a minor detail.

don't they look amazing though?

i love them.

the starkeys

i really enjoyed getting to meet this couple.
they have great energy, and are so in love.

their little dog was seriously too cute for words.
thanks starkeys for making this a really fun session!

in the spirit of gratefulness you have people in your life that make you smile when you think about them?

i do.
this is an example of one such family that makes me smile when i think about them.

bari and i have known each other for years.
(i won't get into the specifics of just how many that is...)

she makes me smile, and subsequently, her family does too.
that makes me grateful.

grateful for friendship.
grateful for a friend that has a great listening and advising ear.
grateful for a teacher for my daughter that has encouraged her to point her toes during a back walkover.
grateful for the confidence i see her instilling in my very moldable 6 year old.
grateful for the support she has shown me through my business adventures.

have you told the friends in your life that make you smile that your grateful for them?
today might be a great day to do that.

90's reference

if you didn't watch the hit sitcom "martin" this phrase will mean nothing to you.
but for me, it's the only phrase i can think of that sums up this photo session.

"Dang, Gina!!"

This mama has got some serious hops, and her sweet daughters are quickly following in her footsteps.  Thanks Aimee for asking me to capture some of your sheer awesomeness.  Every time I look at the picture of your back tuck...I can only think, "Dang, Gina!!"

top 3...

...things about being a photographer?
#1: meeting new people
#2: being excited about "going to work"
#3: immediate gratification.

point in case:
the lauzon family.
what a pleasure meeting this family.

they were fun and easy to work with.
...and seeing their happy faces in my viewfinder was instantly gratifying.
thanks lauzon family.
