Small Package; Big Smiles | Toronto Photographer

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! | Toronto Photographer

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 | Toronto Photographer

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 :)
