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!


It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Super HEATHER!!! You know those people? The ones that simply blow your mind with their accomplishments and undertakings? Heather is THAT person. She has a booming business with Arbonne, mom of two adorable boys, is a Supa-star curler - I could go on. The thing about Heather is... not only is she "THAT" girl, but she makes it look easy. That is what truly astonishes me. So the story goes like this. Heather e-mails me, mentioning that she got asked to be in the Women of Curling Calendar (which raises money for the Canadian Spinal Research Organization's "Shoot For A Cure" program. Each girl chooses their own photographer, and submits a photo. (Aww, shucks, thanks Heather for choosing little ol' MOI!) Naturally my interest was piqued -- so I did what we do in this century. I Boobled... err, Googled that is. My search returned a plethora of steamy images, which resulted in my distinct thinking (not to mention imminent blushing) ... Heather, you brave, sultry, soon-to-be Calendar Vixen you! So we spoke more about it, and I learned that in the past the submissions were super racy. But they have migrated away from those types of images, and the current calendar style is -- well -- a little more conservative. Classy. Phewf. Heather is all class, so I should have known she would only do something if it was done in a tasteful fashion. It's not that I can't handle sexy, but I believe in classy/sexy - so I was relieved when she relayed what she had in mind. It was a little more up my alley in terms of putting my name/work out there in a calendar format where I essentially had zero control of the accompanying images - ya know? Bottom line, Heather played dress up. (Special shout out to Lisa Drader-Murphy http://www.turbine.ca/ (owner/designer of Heather's fabulous pink and blue dresses.) We shot downtown. Heather stopped traffic. She looked hot. We had fun. And here is a little taste of what we captured.  

PS. Can you say hello SHOES?  Oh, and one more thing.  If you haven't tried Arbonne's products, you seriously should.  They are absolutely fabulous, of impeccable quality -- I can not say enough about them.  You can check out Heather's website here: www.hdacey.myarbonne.ca
