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!


Robin Hood and Little Kath, creepin' through the forest... (sing it with me!) Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally golly, what a day. Welcome to my world, where everything is a song!  If these pics don't inspire you to Carpe Diem like nobody's business, grab someone you love and head to the nearest hammock for a summer's day siesta -- I don't know what will.  This sweet family looked so precious all cozied up that I didn't want to disturb them - so I prooooobably spent a little more time on the hammock portion of events than I needed to... BUT who was I to disrupt this bliss?  Sometimes we get so caught up in the frenzy and busy side of life that we forget to enjoy the simple pleasures that are right in front of us, hence the fact that I couldn't help but let them enjoy their quiet moment.  I would be willing to bet that there are many people who have hammocks that they rarely (if ever) use!  I considered joining their little snuggle fest, but a) there didn't appear to be a lot of extra room, and b) wasn't quite sure if that would be appropriate or not?  I'm thinking not.  Perhaps a bit much for their first session with me.  Had it been their second sesh?  I so would have Carpe'd the heck out of my own Diem.  

In lieu of crashing their party, I opted for meandering through the brush on a quiet quest to capture the moments you see below -- not a terrible sacrifice.  We shot in and around their lovely home, and finished up at a nearby farmer's field on a back country road.  (What they don't tell you when considering a photography career is the ridiculous amount of trespassing you'll do!)  My motto is that ignorance is bliss, and I'd rather ask for forgiveness than permission!  I'm such a rebel.  What a beautiful way to spend a morning -- my heart was full -- such a peaceful, lovely set up they have.   First time shooting in Elmsdale, and I loved it!  Natasha and I actually used to be in a Book Club together (aka Eat, Drink and be Chatty Club) several years ago.  Come to think of it, I miss our little book club... time to re-kindle the book worm flame Although I admit it.  I was more of an imposter.  Yup, there were some keeners who read all of the books - I simply was not one of them.  I do love to read, I just don't do well with deadlines and pressure (not that there was any pressure with our group!)  But, I'm strange.  Probably the only woman on the planet who hasn't read Fifty Shades of Grey!  The books I tend to lean towards are usually business or personal growth related, learning oriented, or spiritual in some capacity -- so much to learn, so many ways to continue growing. This is not to say that I won't EVER read Fifty Shades.  As my good friend the Biebs says, (juuust kidding, I don't know him): "Never say Never."  ;)
