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!


What is it about getting a glimpse into other people's worlds that is so enthralling?  I admit it.  I am a terrible and I mean TERRIBLE Facebook picture poster.  It is something I do intend to change.  Sometime soon, really.  But for now, I'm gonna keep on keepin' on.  I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world to come up with this, and I am certainly not the only person who recognizes the need to get our pictures off of the phones, off of the computers, and into something we can hold in our hands.  Friends, the story of your life is important. Please don't forget about yourself.  Without further ado:  Introducing my latest personal project:  My Insta-Life.  Some people think that photographers must have albums and albums of personal photos to flip through.  And some might - but the truth is, many photographers are the worst offenders when it comes to getting their own photos into print format.  Why?  Because we are so busy doing it for our clients that sometimes we neglect to do it for ourselves.  Sure, they might have thousands of photos to flip through... (okay, maybe millions) but more likely than not, in digital format -- like everybody else.  So here's my plan, people of the internet!  As often as I can, I will go through my iPhone pics and come up with a little spread like the one you see.  Once I have enough spreads, I will send them off to print in photo book format (in this case it will be the 8.5" by 11" size.  Big enough, but not too big.)   I use SendOutCards (www.thebusinessofkindness.com) for my personal photo books because... A) I am a Marketing Distributor with the company, and I can't stand confidently behind something unless I am a product of the product!  B) I am really impressed with the quality. C) It's affordable, user friendly and easy to use!  So, that is my photo book provider of choice for projects like this! And there you have it folks -- one of my many ideas.  Once I have the first one in my hands, I will do a blog post or a video to show you.  If you would like to learn more about creating your own photo books through SendOutCards (or any of their other products/services for that matter) I would be happy to help you out.  SOC is revolutionizing the greeting card industry as we know it, and I am honoured to be associated with this big hearted company.
