Awesome Mondays part 22

October has been pretty hectic, and will continue to be right up until the end of the month, especially while there are still brightly coloured leaves on the trees so it is nice to take the morning to remember some conversations now had months ago with some lovely seniors at the Alzheimer outreach centre.  

Michelle had some of the loveliest skin I've seen! Asked her what her secret was but she just laughed. She was happy for us to pamper her and told us that she had always lived in London and has two children.

Susan didn't want to worry about being pampered but liked having her photo taken, we chatted about her brightly coloured bracelet which she told me she got from a friend who went to Spain. 

Jim and I chatted about our shared love of dogs and travelling, he shared some stories from his travels across Canada and was excited for his trip to Newfoundland this fall, it was his first time going there.

Awesome Mondays Part 21

All through this project I've had many people offer their help and connections and when I was connected to the McCormick Home and found out about their Alzheimer Outreach program I knew that it was a very important place to do the project, as the whole idea came from my Nan who had Alzheimer's and had a great time talking and being pampered by the volunteers at the centre she visited once a week.

One word describes Bruce, Cheeky. While he was waiting his turn he was making all the others laugh with getting them to say words that I certainly couldn't ask anyone to say! I would like have his energy at all my shoots!

Gord wasn't too into having his portrait taken but came around to it after seeing a few people go before him. He was a little shy so I didn't get to hear much of his story but I'm really glad that he came around to have this portrait taken. 

I had a good chat to Hugh and he told me that he was born in my neck of the woods, Indonesia and lived in Holland but decided it wasn't big enough for him so moved to Canada where he worked in a Chemical Company.

Plane engagement photography- Becky and Brandon

I need to give myself a slap on the wrist, my blogging is so far behind that this shoot which I was so excited to share has been waiting for me to get my act together so long that now it's only 2 months until Becky and Brandon's big day! Brandon is a pilot working in Thunder Bay but comes back to visit the lovely Becky as much as possible. I had a lot of fun photographing with the biggest prop I've ever used on the grass runway with an award winning plane! At the very bottom is an example of one of the save the date cards I no can offer my clients. Happy Saturday!
