As soon as it was confirmed that I had been accepted on to the Dreams Take Flight team - as one of their Photographers for Disneyland - I hunted high and low for my Donald Duck.
Donald Duck has always been my favourite - and I think it’s because I could mimic his voice (or at least I thought I could) - but I tried before I arrived at Disney and I can no longer do it . . . I just sound like a dying duck instead!
It was at exactly the same time that we had moved - so I was going through every box anyway - but I could not find my Donald Duck!
I did however find a letter from my little friend - thanking us for her treasure chest and Donald Duck - so clearly I thought she needed it more than me! Read More
It makes me so happy that my lovelies get SUPER EXCITED to see their pictures from their beautiful day - believe me - I am twitching with excitement too.
I want to get your pics to you as quick as possible - but without interfering with the quality of the image.
Beautiful images take time - and my Graphics Teacher (18 years ago) said to me "Emma - you are such a perfectionist!"
That perfectionism got me an A grade - and I'm hoping that same trait will make very happy costumers.
I am proud to have a successful business - and because of this - wedding season is an extremely busy time for Pretty as a picture Photography. Read More
With Granyma' recently passing away, it made me think...
did she do everything she dreamed of - that she wanted?
Did she live life to the fullest?
Am I fulfilling every dream?
Are you saying Yes to opportunities - even though your stomach is churning - and butterflies are doing somersaults?
Are you saying yes - despite everyone else saying no - to that 'thing' - or to you?!
My hubby and I said YES to moving to Canada - even though it was a long and frustrating process - and people said "it's just a pipe dream" Read More
Let’s do the ‘try before you buy’ thing!
It’s been a pretty wet summer - so far - but we’ve still had quite a few stinking HOT days!
Days I’d like to call ‘ice-cream' days - where salads and exercise go out of the window (well - sometimes, I WALK to get the ice cream) - and we indulge in a sweet, refreshing treat instead.
And the best thing about going for ice cream cones - is the sampling of every.single.flavour - just to make sure we pick the perfect one (or two) - before committing to an entire scoop!
You may not be able to make up your mind - but as soon as you taste THE one - you just KNOW!
Try before you buy! Read More
Brides - stay tuned - there’s something for you too.
When you receive a wedding invitation in the mail from a dear friend (or relative) - and there’s no gift registry - your head falls into your hands...
What on earth am I going to buy as a wedding gift?!
Keep calm - I have the answers! Read More
Why are Engagement Pictures such a good idea?
Most of my lovelies are camera-shy - avoid being the centre of attention - and therefore have probably never had a professional shoot done before.
So - with that in mind - do you really want your wedding day to be the first time that you experience a ‘paparazzi’ ? - that you experience a professional photo shoot.
Especially when you will already have a million and one things to think about Read More
What is an UNPLUGGED wedding?
What is an unplugged wedding??
Have you heard of “Uncle Bob”?
Or as my hubby likes to call them - Mosquitos - because they just love to buzz around - and get in the way.
They are the [guest] unpaid ‘photographers’ at every wedding!!
The relative with the fancy camera - hovering over my shoulder - to get every shot.
Or even worse - gets in the shot - as they go for an alternative angle.
Luckily for me - it has only happened a handful of times - but believe me - a handful too many! Read More
As you can probably tell by the influx of sneaky peaks over onFacebook -
Have you missed me?
Seriously though - have you?
Have you noticed that I have been M.I.A?
That you have received ZERO emails in the last two weeks?
That there has been a lack of Facebook posts?
A tiny part of me felt like I was abandoning my lovelies - that I had temporarily abandoned my business
Maybe I had - and in that sense - the last two weeks seemed like a very long time - like I’d been away for several weeks - not just two Read More
