Six months ago - we moved into our very own studio in Spruce Grove.
But we needed another excuse to party (hehe)
So we moved!!
We are now in a much bigger space on Main Street in Stony Plain.
So...party time!! Again!
And this time - it's going to be a big deal! Read More
I did it!!
My very first Facebook Live!
And funnily enough - it felt just like a boudoir shoot...
As scary as it was - and I totally rambled and fumbled my words - I will do another - and get better!
Did you manage to tune in?? Read More
Did you know that there's 1440 minutes in ONE day?!
That seems like a heck of a lot of time
yet I always feel like I'm running out of time!
Even during the winter season when I'm 'not busy'... I'm busy!
My 'to do' list is getting longer - even though I am getting things done - bit by bit.
I am so THANKFUL for Abi
She came into my life to assist with weddings - and now she's helping with my TO DO list.
She is saving me!
But can she save me from the grey hairs I seem to be sprouting?? Read More
Having a mommy - as positive - happy - bubbly - just BRILLIANT - as mine...
is such an inspiration.
She's an absolute delight to be around.
Whatever she is faced with ( in life ) - she tackles it head on
with a smile!
Mommy is one of the little pieces of the puzzle that made me WHO I am!
She is an inspiration.
She inspires me to dream - and catch those dreams.
She inspires me to be happy through the toughest times. Read More
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
Sixteen years ago - I bought my very first car - and learnt to drive.
In between lessons - my dad would accompany me in my purple Nissan - so I could practice - and get better.
My dad was always very forthcoming with 'feedback'...
"No - you need to do it this way!"
"Stop riding on your break."
"You are too close" (as he gripped his seat and pressed his foot on the imaginary break!)
I listened - even though I thought my driving was awesome! 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
Today we get our KEYS! Woohoo!
In three days - we get to move into our forever home!
New [outdoor] studio.
No more dull beige walls to stare at when I’m in thinking (ok - distracted) mode - I don’t even have a pot plant to look at!
But it’s ok - because in just a few days - not only will I potentially have a beautiful floral arrangement sat pretty on my shelves - but I will have a whole forest of trees to gaze into - as I ‘work’!
And I’m sure my work motivation will kick in once the novelty of new has gone - and it has sunk in that this is it - our dream has come true! 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
