Home for a visit

This is a large post so I'll apologize in advance!  But how can I not share as much as I possibly can from my great weekend visiting my hometown.  Even though we live on the East coast of Newfoundland, Canada, surrounded by the cold Atlantic ocean, we have sun, surf and a whole lotta wonderful places to see.  These are just a mere sample of the beauty that surrounds my little community.

  I had the added bonus of going on a an impromptu photowalk with a wonderful friend who also shares an enthusiasm for photography.  I was so happy because I've been thinking of trying to organize such a walk and this sort of just fell into our lap!!  It was lots of fun!! 

  Overall, I had a great weekend!  I got to spent time with my parents and to see many family and friends I haven't seen in quite some time.  And I took a few (hundred) pics! :)

Sweet Shot Tuesday

Wow it's that time of the week again-Sweet shot Tuesday!! This photo is from the family session I did last week.  As I quickly went through the photos, this was the one that stood out right away.  To me, it represents the love and bond between siblings.  The protective arms of the older child encasing her little brother and sister and the closed eyes and sweet smile.  The little hand on the sisters leg.  All smiling, all happy, enjoying the moment.

The dirty shirt and pants :)

For those of you who wanted to see the messy shirt I have added this photo along with a shot of the little shorts which did not escape the wrath of the wiping of the hands!  If there's dirt on the hands it has to go somewhere right?

Don't put your dirty hands on your white...shirt....

Ok, I have to admit the day didn't start out on such a sweet sounding note.  It was more of a high-pitched shrilling screech with the word, "NOOO!!"
All because someone didn't want to wear their nice new white shirt.   About 60 seconds later, it was super cuteness, charm and an incessant chatter that could melt your heart!!  Not to leave out the darling sisters.  They were just as adorable and sweet but just a little more quiet about it all!  The oldest  beauty was wise beyond her 8 years and such a help to mom that I was quite amazed!  And the littlest one was a bundle of cuteness and sweet smiles.  She hardly made a fuss about anything.  All in all we had a great day and here's some of my favorite shots. 

P.S. the white shirt got a little messy :)

Children are a Blessing

Being a parent is one of life's greatest gifts that we may sometimes take for granted.  It is full of ups and downs, self doubt and trial and error.  It is something we plan for and sometimes something we do not.  There are many books, but they do not adequately prepare you for the road of parenthood.  However way we come to be parents, it is a job not to be taken lightly.  We are there to guide our children, to keep them safe and to always love them.
So when I say children are a Blessing I say so with all my heart. 

Today's post is of two beautiful children who happen to have two very wonderful parents.  We had loads of fun in the park and I got a workout to boot!  Something they do tell you in books...a two year olds favorite word is "NO!".  Enjoy!

Sweet Shot Tuesday!!

This is my Sweet Shot Tuesday submission.  This photo was taken this past weekend while taking some photos of a great family!!  This location is the most Easterly point in North America called Cape Spear.  It's located in St. John's, Newfoundland!!

Fun in the Sun (and wind)!!

This past Saturday in St. John's we had a gorgeous day! The sun and high temperatures were just wonderful after our sad intro into the summer season. Living on the east coast of Canada can be quite a challenge with our long, cold winters and even shorter summers! But Saturday, all that didn't matter! Saturday, the sun just about melted us into sticky puddles of useless goo and we dare not complain because only a few shorts weeks ago we had temperatures in the low teens (mid 50's depending out what part North America you reside). However, we Newfoundlanders know that with the sun, comes the wind. And buddy did she blow!

A few days before I received a call from an old friend who's cousin was in town from Ontario and she was interested in getting together to have her photos taken.  So, we decided to take in some sites and do a photo session starting with North America's most Easterly point (aka,the most windy point), Cape Spear!(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Spear)  It was a little windy, yeah, you could say that! Here's a look at some of the fun I had with this great family!
