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!


Or should I say... keeping up with ELI!  This little man was on the move!  I wish I had a tenth of his energy.  For much of our session he wanted nothing to do with me, and everything to do with the Remembrance Day monument with the Lion on top. I can't say I blame him, the Lion was considerably more interesting than the crazy camera lady.  The last time I attempted to bond with Mr. Jones Junior here, it became glaringly (embarrassingly, disturbingly) obvious that my go-to dinosaur database wasn't quite up to snuff.  After being told that they were up his alley, I so cleverly inquired:  "What's your favourite dinosaur, Eli?"  To which he replied his favourite... naturally, the "Stegosaurus".  I can't quite recall if I enthusiastically replied:  "The Snaggosaurus!" or "The Steakosaurus!" Doesn't really matter, it was neither of those.  Okay, so perhaps I had a nicely grilled steak on the brain, who knows.  I admit that my dino-roster these days is a little lackluster, and that most three year olds could put my dinosaur knowledge to shame.  What's a girl to do.  (Ask me to recite ANY Little Mermaid song, and I'll show you who's boss!)  But dinosaurs, nope.  Not my thing, it may be time to brush up on them.  I have said it before and I will say it again.  I love meeting new people, and photographing them.  But it is always a treat that I very much look forward to, when it is friends of mine returning to have photos taken.  Little Miss Clara is a beauty just like her mama, with a disposition equally sweet and sunny.  A beautiful family all around.  Not a shabby way to spend an afternoon, not too shabby at all.
