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!


Preamble alert.   Please don't throw tomatoes at me for making such a sweet little girl look so mature and serious!  I swear, I was only doing my job.  The gorgeous Kaitlyn is an actress, and needed some "not so girl next door" shots to suit the type of work she has been booking lately.   We squeezed a few quick photos into the same shoot that I did for her beautiful mama (the post below this one.)   I have to say that she is incredibly comfortable in front of the camera, as I'm sure you can tell -- which made my job an absolute breeze. Badda Bing, Badda Boom.   No offence to the rest of us, but she definitely made stepping in front of the lens look like a cake walk.  I think I am more of a Chandler myself (please tell me you've seen that episode of Friends!) perhaps why I am on the other side of the camera.  Now I do feel the need to issue a bit of a public apology for the A-bomb that I let slip out at our session - not my classiest moment of all time.  In true Nova Scotia fashion, two horses sauntered up the street (officers on their backs, they weren't just cruising the downtown streets) and I tried to snag a quick capture with Kaitlyn just for the heck of it.  Then, it happened - flew right out of my mouth before I had a chance to stop it... the A-bomb... quite by accident:  "Now there's a great pic of Kaitlyn, with two horses a$$*$."  I mean... Derrieres.  Heinies.  Bums!   Gosh darn it, it just sorta slipped out.  Words that shouldn't have in the presence of a sweet young lady.  I promptly went home, washed my mouth out with soap, and then proceeded to do the natural thing -- post the photo on Instagram. Feel free to connect with me on there, if you are so inclined!
