Living in Canada means that our growing season is fairly short, so when the fruit is finally ripe we take full advantage of it and ingest as much as our bodies can handle. We try really hard to be conscious of where our food comes from and to teach our daughter that food actually does grow in dirt and doesn’t magically appear in the grocery store. Luckily she is a fruit loving kid who is very happy to pick and eat (and eat, and eat…) on a warm summer August afternoon. This past weekend we headed out to Horse Hill Berry Farm, a local u-pick raspberry farm that is just outside of the city to pick our raspberry supply for the week. We
had plans for jam and crumble but 2 days later after much snacking, the berries are all gone. I guess we’ll have to go back this weekend….
I love the smell of coffee in the morning, country music, flip flops, beaches (but not necessarily swimming), and sunsets. I love the click of that camera shutter and the first glimpse when I upload images to my computer. I’m lucky enough to have married a man who supports me with his whole heart and who has pushed me to pursue my dreams. I’m called Mama by a little girl who stole my heart the minute she was born, and who continually makes me proud and teaches me to be a more patient person. I have a passion for capturing life as it is. Right here. Right now. I crave authenticity and truth. I want images that make me smile, laugh, cry and take my breath away.
