One of my top 3 days of the year is just four sleeps away! I love Valentine’s Day. When I was a kid, I kind of dreaded the day, because I was a bespectacled chubby redhead, who never got valentines from boys…until grade seven that is. That was the year my life changed. I found a little paper valentine card with a picture of a heart and the words, “Be mine”, tucked into my book by the boy of my dreams. He and I spent a lot of time together alone in the library ’cause we excelled at math and were a year ahead of our classmates (yeah…that’s how I roll). We actually spent a lot of our time laughing and goofing around (yeah…that’s how I roll too).

Ever since the thrill of that exquisite little card, I have absolutely adored Valentine’s Day. Okay…you can wipe the tears from your eyes…so touching.

Love is at the bottom of my tea cup! It’s time to pull out all my Valentine’s Day regalia!!! I’m a sucker for anything with Valentine hearts (dearest friends…I’m not a collector, so don’t start giving me heart-themed stuff…just cash…hard, cold, cash!).

My lovely tulips are gorgeous even on their last legs. I feel a painting coming on. Happy Monday, everyone. Have you noticed it’s staying lighter longer? Hallelujah! Spring is on its way.

I’m playing catch-up today. I was hit by the lovely Norwalk virus yesterday, so I was not really in the mood to photograph anything. Today I’m feeling a little better, so I couldn’t resist playing around with some studio (AKA: my bedroom window) shots.

Cinderella’s slipper never looked so good. I’m loving my new Photoshop 6 version. Lots of bells and whistles. I took this shot on a white table with a white backdrop, a reflector and natural side light. You just can’t go wrong with natural lighting.

With a 13-year-old girl, you never know what you’re going to get:”I love skiing.”; “I hate skiing.”; “I’m hungry.”; “I’m bored.”…you just never know. So in the interest of keeping the peace while we visited Whistler, my daughter and I spent A LOT of time shopping. And when I say shopping, I mean shopping at Lush, ’cause my girl is addicted to scents and beauty products. It could be worse (unless you’re my husband, who can’t stand perfume).

One of the best things about Whistler is the vibe. It’s full of young adults from around the world, who come to work, ski and party! The staff at Lush were awesome–so friendly. Inka (pretty German name, eh?) was a good sport posing for a blog shot. High five, Inka!

I’m really inspired by colour. If I had a favourite colour, it would be aqua. Add robots to the mix, and I go crazy. When it comes to photographing, I’m instantly drawn to colours, like a crow that spots a fry from a mile away! The shoppers in the Whistler Lush store must have thought I was nuts shooting pictures of these adorable bath bombs–crazy tourist!!! Here’s a shout-out to the Lush girls, who helped me out with my photos! I’ve got a great one of Inka that I’ll profile tomorrow.
