If you sang this line, we will get along juuuuuust fine. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! Allow me to introduce myself, and attempt to summarize what it is that I’m doing here in the Blogosphere. (Key word is attempt. Those of you who know me know that I tend to write short novels for e-mails and my voice mails more closely resemble Shakespearian soliloquies than “call me backs.”) Runs in the family. Alas, that is I. Who am I you ask? Kathy… a not so typical Photographer. Greeting card business enthusiast. Multi-passionate entrepreneur. Idea girl. Dreamer. Lover of life. Happy. Most days my brain is racing so fast with ideas and things I want to do, that I feel I’m too passionate for my own good. Who am I not? Perfectly organized. A fantastic housekeeper or gardener. My shoe collection would make Carrie Bradshaw cringe, and I get more excited about a good vintage score at Frenchy’s than I ever would about a Prada purse. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate a fine set of heels like the next girl, but I just don't believe we have to spend the family fortune to look put together. I’m a pretty simple gal who believes there is a time and a place for everything. Including but not limited to: gummy bears, boxed wine, Zoodles, Mr. Noodles and occasionally (okay... very occasionally) Beefaroni. There, I said it, and frankly it feels quite good to get it off my chest. So it's no secret that I am fairly passionate, and put a lot of heart and soul into the things that inspire me. That means in business and in life because I feel like the two are really intertwined anyway - "How you do anything is how you do everything!" I believe that Confucius was right when he said "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it". I have realized over time that I can't help but see beauty. It is a problem at times. (Forget texting and driving, one shouldn't be permitted to "see beauty", or potential photo session locations for that matter, while driving.) I digress. When beauty jumps out of the world at you, it is easy to become passionate about photography - for me, it is a way to relay to others the beauty that I see in my minds eye. Life is short, this we all know. We are meant to enjoy it, appreciating and celebrating those who are important to us, in this lifetime. This blog is an immediate outlet for me to express and humour myself (and those who stumble by) attach sneak peeks of the happenings here at Legacy Junction Studios, offer fun contests and specials, and chronicle what’s going on in my crazy world. Feel free to sniff around - just promise not to laugh at my wordiness, okay? I truly can't resist! If you know me, you KNOW that is true! (To thine own self be true, no?) Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so humbled and flattered that you’ve visited and would love to know! You’re welcome and encouraged to leave comments, and say hello!


So... I wanna kidnap them.  Is that so wrong?  Just wondering.  Because seriously, I do.  I don't even know how to properly articulate how adorable this family is.  Well, you can probably tell just by looking at the pictures.  I met Annemarie at a networking event a while ago, and have since taken some headshots for she and her hubby Kevin -- and now these family photos.  They are such a lovelly family, and I do have to say that they were THE best posers EVER!  I typically tend to provide a mix of candids with a few posed shots, but with the time we had and desired end result in mind, more posed images seemed to be the best approach.  They rocked it!  I offered up a little guidance, (and a few lame jokes) and they morphed into these SUPERSTARS.  I told them to do something, and imagine - they just, like... DID it!  It was miraculous! Kevin is the brave father to the four incredibly beautiful, kindhearted and intelligent young women you see below.  And can't forget the handsome and strapping young lad!  Kevin recently accepted a new position as District Superintendent for the Maritime District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada -- (not a mouthful at all!) and I wish him all the best with his newly accepted role.  He even invited me to tag along for ice cream on the waterfront after the session with the fam (I felt like the sixth kid!  I suppose being one of five children myself, I felt right at home.  What can I say!?)  What he didn't know is that food is definitely the way to my heart - particularly when it involves chocolate AND peanut butter in one decadent concoction... so he definitely earned some big time brownie points with me! Then there's the lovely Annemarie.  We seem to get along famously and have a tendency to get into these lenghty phone chats -- I'd say we are kindred spirits. She's the owner of Trombe L'oeil Muralhttp://www.annemariejohnson.ca www.annemariejohnson.ca and is an extremely talented award winning artist - a mural/marble painter, faux finisher and Italian plaster applicator (to name a few!) Her art is available at several locations in Halifax. Actually, Annemarie and I have been discussing teaming up on a unique art collaboration project that I am really excited about. Stay tuned! I have a gooooood feeling about it! Thanks for the great session!
