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!


When our little musician in training woke up from her afternoon nap and asked her mama:  "Where's Kaffy?" if it were at all possible for my heart to melt just a tiny bit more, it did.  As if these two sweet girlies in their pink tutu's left even a morsel of my heart in tact after their session. I was not there upon her rising -- we had said our goodbyes hours prior -- but this is what I am told by mom. I wonder if she had visions of sugar plums and crazy photographers dancing in her wee head while she slept. These are the little things that make it all worthwhile. Her joyous grin is as infectious as her personality sweet, and I am glad to have befriended her. Spending a quiet morning with the Chandler family was a beautiful way to spend a Saturday morn, and I count myself quite fortunate to have done so. I have to say that I absolutely embrace the challenge and adore the result of images in one's home with their family. Such tender, authentic moments. This is my taste. Pure and simple, natural interaction, images that are meaningful to YOU and that tell a story. If you want to know why I no longer book "studio" style family sessions, this, thisis why. I simply can not get this by giving you an hour on a black or white (or purple backdrop for that matter!) - trying to wrangle kids to stay still, coercing them to be interested in me and my camera. Some photographers do it, and do it very well. I am not one of them. Without further ado... a snippet of my morning with the Chandler's.

The tutu's by the way, were meticulously crafted by their MAMA!  Hello, she's not only beautiful and kind, but crafty to boot.  Amazing job, Alison!
