HELLO DARLIN.

NICE TO SEE YA.



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!

KEN + BECCA SAY I DO


I have to tell you.  There is a very distinct feeling of privilege that accompanies photographing a day as significant as one's wedding day. Magnify that feeling by about a zillion when it is family.  Not only do you get a backstage all-access pass to the festivities, but there is a sea of familiar faces and loved ones at every turn.  I treasure my family, so it was an honour to have had this incredible day entrusted to our interpretation and artistry... one that I hold dear, and do not take lightly. Despite the few hiccups along the way, it was a day laced with abundant beauty.  Is it okay to laugh yet, guys?? Too soon?) I tease because I love.  It was going to take a heck of a lot more than a few missing articles (vows, undies, purses and ummmm, maybe a bridal suite... just to name a few) to put a damper on this celebration.  The powers that be came through in a generous overcompensation, providing a beautiful blue sky, a breathtaking bride, a handsome groom, an amazingly photogenic wedding party and a plethora of magic moments throughout the day.  So thank you again Ken and Becca, for bestowing this honour upon us.  It gives me the warm fuzzies to think that these images will be gracing the walls of your home for generations to come, retelling over and over again the story of the day your new life began.  I know that there were very important people missing from this momentous occasion in your lives... but they were there... I felt it.  I hope Marc and I were able to capture the spirit, energy and joy of your day as you remember it.  Much love!
