More action and business.

This gorgeous girl has just graduated. We are so proud of her! We went downtown for a photoshoot in her gorgeous dress with her handsome boyfriend. A photogrpahers dream!
So many fun, pretty little places around town to have a shoot. Thia was having fun being the center of attention, and boy did she deserve it!

This is a fun, playful shot just outside of city hall.

I love the way our school does graduation. The students are walked down with their parents, and holding a rose. At the end of the walkway, they hug dad, hug mom and give her a rose. The parents then all sit in the front. Later, at the banquet, the first dance is a father /daughter, son/ mother dance. It is just beautiful!
Here's proud papa!

Oh, Poor sad little lonely blog!

So yes, I have neglected my poor blog again. It seems to fall in the list of priorieties quite quickly! To my defense though, I have had some serious computer issues that needed tending which seem to be resolved now. In my absence though I have been busy. I helped take some pics of my son and his band up at the Butter Church in Cowichan Bay. It is quite the place and made the perfect backdrop for grungey gritty band pics. What a great looking bunch of guys eh? They are crazy talented too.
They were so much fun to shoot, totally up for anything and took direction well too!

This is just outside of the butter church, the trees are so awesome!

And this is my boy. Gorgeous, isnt he?;)

Friendship spanning the spieces

Over the weekend our camera club went to a Wildlife Rescue center. This young fellow has there for a few years now and his name is Sandor. When he was brought in he had a very badly broken wing, lice, siezures and other health issues that made it almost hopeless he would survive! They managed to nurse him to health although, he would never be able to be released into the wild so they decided to use him as an educational tool. In order to 'tame' him, they have one person who is his dedicated handler. It was truly stunning to see the interaction between the two of them! Here you can so easily see the size of the birds beak next to her unprotected finger. He was so careful and gentle with her bare fingers. Unreal!
So naturally they shared affection, complete trust and comfort made thier bond easy to see. She must really have dedication, patience, and persistance to bring a saint to his knees!

Spring, a time to renew, start fresh!

My poor blog over here all by itself, lonely and neglected. So many times I popped over quickly but felt so overwhelmed by how far I let things slide.

A couple of new clutches, one made from a vintage linen table cloth! I think these are nice colours for spring. It is hard to not feel spurred on by all the new beginnings around this time of year. Finally I felt compelled to just pick up, dust off and jump back in to where I left off. No sense trying to back track to redo, just pick up where I am now. Simple, but refreshing!
