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!


I love my awesome clients, especially repeat clients!!!  While photo sessions technically are "work", I suppose, it is still an excuse for me to spend time with great people, and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly the children grow up.  So here we are once again with this sweet family.  Aren't little David and Alex so cute?  I have to say that there is a hilarious common thread with most family sessions involving young children.  They can be a little crazy at times.  Kids will be kids, and they don't always do precisely what you (or their parents) want them to, when you want them to do it.  This is a prime example. Not that the kids weren't awesome, because they were and they did everything I could have expected of them -- BE KIDS! Many parents feel a bit stressed, thinking that theirs must be the worst shoot ever for me, or that their kids aren't co-operating.  NOT the case.  They are all a bit bonkers, but it is okay!  It is what I have come to expect. Amidst this photo frenzy, I'm sure poor Cindy was hoping with all her might for just one or two nice photos out of the mix.  I often find myself reassuring clients (as was the case on this particular day) ... "Don't WORRY!  Just have fun, go with it... I'm getting good shots despite what you might think!"  In fact, a lot of the time, my favourite images are the very non-contrived, sometimes surprising moments that present themselves amidst the kerfuffle of everything.  Not gonna lie though, sometimes I even find myself  praying for a photo miracle... but some way, somehow, it all comes together in the end.  A little patience and perseverance, (perhaps a dash of luck, an answered prayer... or bribery.  I'm not above bribery!) and there always seem to be more than enough beauties in the mix. Enjoy.
