Holdiay Mini Sessions!

Holiday Mini Sessions are now open to everyone for registration!  The set design will be changed up from last year.  Details to follow.  A portion of the proceeds of this event is going to be donated to Medics HELP, a volunteer organization consisting of mainly Paramedics who travel to Africa to set up free medical clinics.  You can learn more about Medics HELP by visiting their website HERE

Only a limited number of sessions are available and they are now over half full.  If you are interested in getting some updated images of your family for the holidays but don’t require a full session, this is a great opportunity to do so.  Click HERE to for more information or to book your session.

Balloon Time

How do you accomplish capturing some great images of a little boy full of ants in his pants?  Give him something to do!  I am sure most moms out there with young boys can sympathize.  They HATE staying still for just one image, let alone a whole session dedicated to them!  This is my daily struggle with my little guy.  Usually I get him saying “CHEEESSE” (I’d really LOVE to have a chat with whoever taught him the “cheese expression”!) as he’s smiling and running in the other direction.

Well, I got his number this time.  Mason absolutely loves balloons.  Doesn’t matter the size, shape or colour, he loves them all.  So obviously I needed a session dedicated to him and his current passion.  Imagine his surprise when I pulled out a mini helium tank and started filling one balloon, then another, then another… The way his face lit up was priceless, especially when he realized they were all for him.  Needless to say, we had a crazy amount of balloons floating around the house for a few days

HipPop Hoorray!

Popcorn.  One of my favourite indulgences.  Needless to say, I was thrilled when I heard about a new business venture in town, Hippop Popcorn.  Sarah, a wonderful mom of two sweet little girls, started her business in March of this year after a brainstorming session with her husband about all the flavour possibilities.  Out of her love of popcorn and experimenting with new tastes, Hippop was born!  Like a lot of moms out there today, Sarah had concerns about what her family was consuming in many of the commercial brands of flavoured popcorn available in supermarkets.  She loved the idea of coming up with her own flavours made from scratch, and knowing exactly what her family was eating.  I was lucky enough to be able to sample a few of her combinations and they are AWESOME!  One of her best selling items: party bags. A perfect alternative to your typical birthday party loot bag!  We gave out her white chocolate popcorn that was all jazzed up with brightly coloured sprinkles for our little guy’s birthday this year.  They were a huge hit!

Sarah came into the studio with her girls for a fun filled session this summer.  Of course, popcorn HAD to be involved.  Here are a few of her images from her session.

Kelly Surtees – Astrologer

Have you ever wondered about stars and planets and how they play a role in your daily life?  Then you need to get in touch with Kelly, a Predictive Astrologer, counsellor and all around pretty amazing person!

I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly through Noinkee’s, one of my favourite shops in town, during one of their Ladies Night Out Promotions.  Kelly was doing mini astrology chart sessions as part of the events that night.  As soon as I sat down with Kelly, it was clear she had a gift.  I think she is one of the most intuitive women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  She captivated me within minutes of the session.  We discussed current and past events, and even a little glimpse into what the future may hold.  At the end of the session, she had me completely hooked!  I honestly didn’t want it to end.

While capturing a few images to update her profiles, here’s what Kelly had to say about what she offered:

“My intention when working with people is to provide insight and support.  Counselling is a collaborative, where therapist and client work together to make sense of current situations, or find meaning and perspective on past events.  Astrology provides divine insight into both personality and present experience, which can be empowering in its simplicity.”

With the growing demand for her expertise, recently Kelly has secured a few new spaces to offer her services.  We are very fortunate one is right here in Orangeville!  Kelly will be working from the new Harmony Health Naturopathic Clinic on Wednesdays starting beginning of September, offering Holistic Counselling and Astrology.  Bookings can be made by calling the clinic’s front desk at (519)940-3600.  Go ahead and talk with her; you won’t be disappointed!
