Aqua Photo Series

I feel like I’ve been away from this space for so long.  I guess that’s because I have.  With the weather getting cooler I’m feeling motivated to do some blog nesting.  I want to post semi regularly, do some design updating and most importantly re connect with all of the lovely readers I’ve been missing.  To kick off my new found motivation I thought I would share the aqua photo series I recently put together.  All of these images were captured on a recent vacation in Vancouver.  I find that …

Boy + Girl Design SHOP!

It’s official!  My first eight images are live and up for sale.  If you want to check them out (and I hope you do!) click here or visit the “SHOP” tab on my navigation bar.

This is one of those experiences that’s both terrifying and exciting at the same time!  One that I hope will help me push my limits, hurdle over barriers and grow and stretch in ways I didn’t know I could.  I tweeted a link a few days ago and am happy to see that my photos have …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 9–Literally.

Thanks for joining me for the ninth post in my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series.  If you’ve missed any along the way, feel free to catch up here!
We finally got a healthy dose of winter yesterday!  Snow mixed with freezing rain isn’t my idea of a good time if I have to be on the roads – yesterday I didn’t.  I was able to putter around my back yard and snap pictures all day.  There is something so beautiful about foliage trapped under ice isn’t there?  …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 7–Winter Wonderland Photo Gift Tags

This is the seventh post in my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series. I hope you’ll follow along for the next 18! There’s a whole lot of Christmas cheer coming your way between now and the 25th!

I’ve been busy shopping for Christmas gifts and brainstorming how I want to wrap them this year.  I originally planned to wrap everything in newspaper, but I’m thinking it’s probably not the best idea.  I wrapped one gift, and had newsprint all over my hands and the gift.  They …

A Picture Is Worth 4000 Words: Fall Photo

I’m taking advantage of fall.  I’m spending as much time as I can outside, while the temperature is as beautiful as the view.  Before you know it we will be snow covered here in Ontario, and while I love the way freshly fallen snow looks, I don’t love the below (well, well, well below) freezing temperatures that come with it.  This weekend we took a beautiful walk with the dogs and I capture a few fall images.  Here is my favourite.  I’ve edited it four different ways and of course …

Falling For Fall Photography

It’s no mystery why so many people consider fall their favourite season.  The temperatures is comfortable, the colours are vibrant and every twist and turn of a trail provides a photographer (amateur and professional alike) with another opportunity to capture breath taking views.  I’ve put together a few fall shots to celebrate the peak (in my neck of the woods) of the fall season.I hope the views are just as beautiful where you are.  And a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian readers.

Maple Toffee

With Thanksgiving less than a week away (for us Canadian folks) I thought I would whip up a batch of Maple Toffee to take with me to the two Thanksgiving dinners I will be a guest at.  Well, truth be told, one the dinners will be held at my sister’s house, but I’ll be doing most of the cooking so I guess I’m not really a guest.  Either way, it’s nice to show up with a sweet treat.  People like candy.  This is a really easy recipe.   And if you …

Foggy Photography

One of my favourite things about fall is the fog.  Fog puts on a breathtaking show for me everyday on my way to work.  Unfortunately, I never have time to stop and capture it.  Until this weekend at the cottage.  Fall and fog got together and danced across the lake and  I was finally able to capture a few images.  Here are my two favourites.Of course now I want to print and hang them.  I just don’t have enough wall space in my house for all of the pictures I …

Black & White Printed Photos

I finally got around to printing a few photos while I was on vacation a few weeks ago.  Since then my dining room has turned in to my little studio.  I haven’t decided which ones I want to hang together or where they will all go but I’m sure I will find a spot for each of them.  Either together or separately.  Do you guys have any ideas on which you think should hang together?  There is quite a variety of subject/feel, ranging from rustic to urban to vintage so …

Coffee Station. Coffee Photo. Makes Sense.

Well,  my vacation is over.  I could cry.  I loved being at home with the puppy all week, working on the house, sneaking away to the woods for a few days with family and dressing in colour – I have to wear all black to work in case that didn’t make sense to any of you.  During my week off I had a list of things I wanted to accomplish.  There are still a few items waiting for a strikethrough.  But I did make it out to get a few …
