i know it's been months since i've blogged and i know i always plead being busy... but it's more than just being busy. i haven't really made the time to pop over here and write down what's been happening in my life because i really don't know where to start. in fact, i don't even remember where i left off! *goes back to check when last blog post was* ........ july, that's not so bad.
as most of you probably know, i spent the majority of july on vacation - a week travelling in italy and then a week on a mediterranean cruise with my family. what a treat. once i get all my photos edited, i'll be doing a couple of separate blog posts on those (i hope). the one on venice should be making an appearance within the next few days.
august was extraordinarily busy. i photographed three skating competitions, two under my own business name. thank you to everyone who made minto summer skate and thornhill summer skate such huge successes for me. i enjoyed meeting each and every one of you and i wish you all the best in the coming season. i hope i'll get to see you all compete again
in between skating competitions i also had the opportunity to do a little photoshoot for one of the new pairs teams (made up of two familiar faces) at kwsc for a brochure they are appearing in for an ice show. i'm excited to see how this pair develops. here are a few of the photos i took of shalena rau and rob schultz:
in addition to photographing shae and rob, i also got to photograph kwsc's starskate campers in their week-end show, which was great fun! the there was zombies, and boy, those kiddos did not go half way with the makeup and hair!
apart from that i have been uploading thornhill & minto photos into their respective galleries, editing vacation pictures and making collages to wish good luck to the skaters who are competing on the junior grand prix circuit (skaters going to kosice, slovakia stay tuned - yours is coming tonight or tomorrow).
oh, and last weekend my mum and i drove up to port carling (near muskoka) for their "beat the heat" ice show, put on my the port carling figure skating club and the brian orser foundation. here are a few photos and the review i posted for sport-folio.net.
