my mums in town horaahhh!!
i get to see my family once a year cause we live in different countries. it’s nice to have a mum around :)
i think i miss my mum the most when i’m sick or hungry….LOL just kidding!!! i love my mum for more than just that..she’s a special and kind lady.
yesterday i was able to have some down time with a special friend. went to a starbucks at indigo and read my book and blogged. I looked at the time and realized we had been there for 4 hours! That’s a long time! and starbucks chairs are not the most comfy ;P
It’s nice! It’s SO nice that I have this job as my full time job. I keep reflecting and thinking about where I was just the beginning of this year and I’m amazed at Gods blessings and amazed at where he is taking me.
amelia and daniel are cool!
the kind of people I can see myself stay in touch with because they’re so down to earth…my kind of people :)
when we had our first meeting at bubble tea I was so excited because the more i talked with them the more i liked them. they put me at ease…wait…shouldn’t it be the other way round? shouldn’t i put THEM at ease? lol!!!! So when they booked me I was very pleased :) and guess where they’re having their reception? at the AGO!
I have such a soft spot for non-western weddings! cause they’re so different and colourful!! The venue was at the Estates of Sunnybrook, beautiful venue with amazing food! I was amazed at the food! yummm…
I met Tahmina through a good friend of mine Daseul…they both work at general mills! how cool is that!?! hehehe Thanks for letting me shoot your day Tahmina and Bilal!!! (yallah-habeebee!!!!)
something wonderful happened a couple weeks back!
I was invited to set up a booth at a gift registry gala at The Bay at Fairview Mall
The event is on Oct 24th from 6pm-9pm
I’m just so excited that I was invited and truly honored and humbled because it’s so unexpected and big!
There’ll be other vendors there from other industries such as mac cosmetics, vera wang, purdy’s chocolate (yummmm), House & Home…
their wedding was small and intimate but I could sense so much love between them and their family
they are such genuine people :)
I’m always touched when clients check to see that i’m doing ok…ask me how i’m doing..if i need anything…LOL it’s like they see that I am also human and not super camera woman with a magical camera…
So this year has been pretty awesome for so many reasons! :)
First of all I got laid off early in the year, real estate took a big hit, which forced me to jump into wedding photography full-time…something I wanted to do stayed because I thought it a blessing to have a good job during an economic crisis. So! when I got laid off it was such a blessing! Now I can’t imagine my life any other way…and i can’t believe this wasn’t my main occupation before this year! I’m so thankful to God :)
wohoo!!! I’m plowing through my weddings and getting them up on to my blog!
Hyerim + James…my church friends…I had a blast shooting this wedding because all my friends were there too! Also, I had Chris Luk from Christopher Luk Photography assisting me :p It’s really really amazing shooting with other colleagues because I don’t feel as lonely hehehe…just kidding…it’s great because you don’t have to talk to yourself and debate to oneself about whether or not something is a good idea or completely stupid. We got to trespass a little during the shoot, great fun! you should try it some time :) down side was getting bit by friggin mosquitoes!!! GARH!!! I HATE MOSQUITOES!
