It comes as no surprise just how much I LOVE photography and more recently videography. There is always a strong pull to document anything that brings joy and happiness to my life, and pictures are a perfect way to freeze those moments.
Last week I had the pleasure of a day off and it was all sorts of productive. I had planned a trip home (only about a 1hour and 30minute drive) to hangout with my mum and hopefully sneak in a surprise visit to my Grammie who lives another 30min past my parents.
My husband also had some vacation time overlapping my day off and a big part of me wanted to just hangout with him at home all day BUT we both needed to have some productivity in our non-work lives.
Do you remember just a few days ago (yep, 4 days ago) I wrote a post about using iMovie?
I had taken some video clips while shooting my sister’s engagement photos (along with “the hubby” << I think thats just what i’ll refer to him here as for now). Initially I really didn’t have any plans for the clips because I had never edited video before, but I thought “
I’ve got time (lies – I have little time), why not try to throw together a little video for them as a surprise?” Continue reading iMovie Video Update
Just about to get ready to head over to my sister’s engagement party. I thought I’d do a very quick update full of snapshots from the crazy storm that passed through Friday evening.
It was the first time I’d ever seen a decent shelf cloud – gorgeous! I really got super excited, so much so that the hubby and I toddled off to the end of our street to catch a better view. I’m only uploading the photos I took with my phone right now. Hopefully tomorrow ill have time to edit photos from a few recent adventures.
Stay tuned and check back often to see:
- More bridal shower adventure prep
- Engagement photos & mini film
- Ontario storm (pics/video)
- Pig roast party
Look out below for a fun cellphone pic or two. Video coming soon!
Second photo is (c) The Hubby . You can see our awesome neighbors out front too.
Obviously we took shelter on our front porch once it got intense. Didn’t rain as much as we would’ve liked (poor grass), but ill take what I can get.
Did anyone else get a good summer storm? Let me know in the comments! Id love to see photos or videos of your crazy weather.
Til next time!
Many (many, many) years ago – waaaaay back in highschool, I scored a job at the local public library (“The GPL” as we liked to call it). It was the kind of job nerdy highschool kids coveted (or was it just me?). Working at the GPL was only possible while you were still in highschool and I started there in grade 10.
During the school year, the hours were enough such that you could walk over after school (maybe a 30min walk), work for two hours, then get a ride home from mom or dad. We would do the 2 hour shift twice a week, and one day a week we would each get an ‘evening’ shift (6-9pm). While I was definitely saving up most of my doubloons for post-secondary, there was one thing I REALLY wished to treat myself to: a digital camera!
