Time for a photography preview! And it’s a good thing too… because I’m just not that eloquent tonight. 😉 Generally words come fast and easy, but tonight? Tonight I’m tired, and the words, they be playing hide and seek with me (it would appear I’m losing).
I had the pleasure of working with Wendy and Chris to capture all the important moments at their wedding (and several hours before). The big event was a little over a week ago now, and I’ve got a few sneak peek images to share from the “formals” portion of the day. Wendy and Chris were so much fun! I loved that we were able to be silly and capture some really fun and goofy moments along with the romantic ones.
Thankfully I’ve been able to devote quite a bit of time so far to the edits and enhancements, and I’m about 1/3 of the way through. So hopefully, Chris and Wendy, it won’t be too much longer until everything is ready. 🙂 Thank you for including me in your special day. It really was a delight!
Well, before I announce which of my wonderful Facebook fans is the winner of the free “It’s all you” shoot… I’m going to share a little about my day. 🙂 Which was lovely btw.
I did a photo shoot in the early afternoon with Reche and her family. They were absolutely delightful – such sweet little girls. Her youngest is out to conquer the world, and will do it too I bet!
Then I picked up the husband from work, picked up the kid from school, hit the co-op for some picnic supplies (gotta have strawberry salad and watermelon), packed up a yummy fresh supper into our picnic bag… and off we went to one of my favourite little hidden spots down by the river. Most of the sandbars are overrun with people, but I know a couple slightly more out of the way spots, and we were all alone.
We did see our first tick of the year, nasty little things make me cringe and even thinking about it has me all itchy… LOL But it was all good. The girl played in the sand, she and her Daddy threw and skipped rocks. And we all very much enjoyed our first picnic of the year. Silly me, I didn’t think to bring my telephoto lens along – but I’ll remember next time. 😉
After supper we stopped on over to my Auntie Risa’s new place. It was nice visiting with her and my cousins. And we even were treated to a little fried chicken and tea.
So yep. A very nice day.
Okay… so ya’ll are wanting to know who gets the free photo shoot, right? Who gets to be spoiled and be the star? Well, our lucky number is 141 (so instead of counting up from 1, I counted backwards from 158).
So Facebook fan number 141 is…..
You’ve won a free “It’s All You” session. Drop me a line at photographer at tobi-dawne dot com, send me a FB message, or fill out the booking form at http://photography.tobi-dawne.com/ and we’ll get our shoot on! Congratulations. 😀
If you aren’t a fan of TD Photography, Saskatoon’s Photosmith on FB yet I’d get on it! This won’t be the last time we do a give-away. Something tells me there are more freebies coming!
I had a lovely time with Pat and her family on Sunday afternoon out in Gabriel Dumont Park. It’s one of my favourite spots to do family photographs ANY time of year, even when it’s -20 out. Thankfully it was substantially warmer than that, as we’re having the warmest Winter Saskatchewan has seen in my 34 years, so while we were all starting to get red cheeks and cold hands by the end of our hour together, we managed to get all the way through without complaint. Well… except for Shmee, who was unimpressed by the whole thing.
It may seem like some cruel and unusual punishment to share photographs taken on such a gorgeous Summer day on a day like today, but better today than mid-January when it’s -40 out. 😉
Wow. Okay. That’s really all I’ve got to say. LMAO I’m still having trouble fighting off that stomach bug and I’m about ready for bed right now. So instead of dwelling on that, let’s focus on something lovely – a gorgeous family enjoying the sunshine and one another:
I’m sorry not to write more. The Kzyzyk family were absolutely lovely to work with, and I don’t meant to downplay that in the slightest. I really am just too exhausted and too ill to form any more cohesive sentences. Hope you’ll forgive me.
