Small Package; Big Smiles

So funny. At lunch I was in Winners and I overheard two women talking about clothing and size. In particular about their height. One of them said that she hated being 5’3″. Too short to reach the top pole on the subway or reach high cabinets. I was actually amused to over hear this conversation, cause guess what, I’m exactly 5’3″! And I LOVE my height. I’m neither too short (if you’re shorter than me, well, I feel bad for you son :) ), nor too tall. Most people and guys (bonus!) are taller than me. Yet, I always forget how short I am. It’s not until I’m standing beside a tall person, and we happen to be in front of a reflective surface and I realise, “I’m short”. Lol. Definitely WAY more advantages to being short, I say. :)

So after that rant, I want to quickly post a sneak peek from another one of my Hair Portrait Sessions. I was editing this yesterday and apart from remembering how much fun I had photographing Jennifer (who also happens to be petite), I was taken, by lovely surprise by, this smile – so I thought I’d share another image from the session. Just ’cause :)

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

“There are 7 days in a week and someday isn’t one of them.”

Someday I want to do ALL the things I keep saying I want to.
“Someday” will NEVER come.
So at some point you have to say I’m doing them NOW.
RIGHT NOW.
I’m going to New York. I’m losing weight. I’m going to ENJOY life.
Today can be that someday.

I had a great weekend y’all. No, I don’t really say ‘y’all’ in real life, but it felt appropriate. :)
I had a great photoshoot on Saturday. And then lot’s of editing. I missed Nuit Blanche (so sad), cause I think there were some really cool installations. BUT on Sunday I had a GREAT day hanging out with my Angie and her baby boy. It was so nice to just ‘be’ with a friend. Ya know? Enjoy life! Have a great week!

The Mindy Project

So, my new favvvvorite program is ‘The Mindy Project’. What’s the Mindy Project you ask? Oh my goodness, how do you not know? Well, I will tell you. Have you ever heard of a show called ‘The Office’? Well Mindy Kaling, she was the ‘brown’ girl on ‘The Office’. Not only did she play a character on the show, I came to find out that she also wrote and produced on the show and now she has written this new show. Oh, my, gosh – I love it so much! I LOVE the character she has created – Mindy Lahiri – this super amazing awesome totally stunning quirky fashionista woman who goes to her own beat. She’s inspired a new love of dresses for me. Her outfits each week are soooooo fun and coordinated so amazingly well. I love that they are fun yet stylish and they reiterate how easy dresses are. On top of that, she’s this gynaecological doctor that just does her own thing. And she’s so fun and the writing is awesome and so hilarious. If you haven’t heard of ‘The Mindy Project’, you need to find out right now. You need to go check it out on Netflix and watch it because it’s totally awesome, because I said so ;)

And for a bit more proof of the awesomeness of this show, here’s a clip I posted on my facebook last week. It’s of doctor Danny dancing to Aaliyah’s ‘Try Again’ for Mindy. I would die if I guy danced like that for me :)

Downtown Toronto Portraits

A few more pics from a quick session over the summer with Derome a young Toronto Model & Actor. We shot down-town in Toronto’s Business district, which is great because you can easily find a nice nook or space to shoot a cool Portrait or Headshot.

Yay, it’s Monday!

Happy Monday!

“Stand tall be strong just go out there and be you in your own wonderful way TODAY!”

I had a GREAT weekend. It was busy, not gonna lie. Well Saturday sure was, with me off shooting a wedding with Mendes Photography. SUCH a beautiful day it was on Saturday. Can’t believe it’s the END of September already. The month totally flew by. Sunday, was filled with mundane things like grocery shopping and house cleaning and new internet providers (#TeamTekSavvy!). This week is gonna be awesome. Why? Cause I said so. And I hope you have an AWESOME week too. K? K! :)

Last week I…

I tried on some wardrobe dress options
and Listened to music at Metro Hall
Took a picture of my shadow
and saw a sunrise
Saw a building that always reminds me of Escher pictures
and some really cool light
walked through dew covered grass to get to that light
and then saw some more beautiful light
Saw a giant Canadian Flag raised
and then saw some Birds on a light pole
Saw a funny euphemism at lunch
and then ‘ran into’ Mindy Kaling.
Saw some shadowy groceries
and waited for a street car
Received a package from Forever21
met a beautiful bride
while shooting a wedding.
