Life’s Blessings {don’t forget to count ‘em}

It’s been a dog’s age since we posted anything remotely personal on this blog. And rightfully so, it is meant to showcase our most recent client work. With the holidays upon us, however, and family in all parts of the world these days, we couldn’t resist putting up a few images from our trip [...]

It’s been a dog’s age since we posted anything remotely personal on this blog. And rightfully so, it is meant to showcase our most recent client work. With the holidays upon us, however, and family in all parts of the world these days, we couldn’t resist putting up a few images from our trip home to Sudbury and Ottawa, where we took some time to just live in the present and hang with our girls Piper (7) and Saffron (2). And in case you find yourselves wondering, yes, this is about as typical as it gets with us: no sleds on hand so why not just grab some trusty cardboard and make do?!!

To our family in Guatemala: Mom, Dad, Natasha + Rod + Maple, Jonathan + Shalem…. we miss you a tonne and wish you were here! Say hello to the volcanoes and bring us home some Antigua coffee, please! To our family in the Middle East: Dagmara + John (+ and all our kindred bandmates)… counting the days until you make that requisite journey back home. Though you are so bloody far away (it’s hard to fathom where on earth Oman is!), you are in our hearts and we love you dearly. To our family in Sudbury: Mom, Dad, Inese + Freddy + Cody, Laila + good ol’ Mojo…. thank you for spoiling us rotten, for making numerous feasts fit for kings and for putting up with the yammerings of our little ones.

Life has blessed us in so many ways; but often we find ourselves caught up in the ever infamous pursuit of *more*. We are grateful for our health, for our two loving and mischievous daughters, for our supportive and unwavering families, for friends that love and accept us shortcomings and all and for this career which allows us such an intimate and poignant glimpse into this crazy little thing called *love.*

Happy Holidays to all our clients, former and new; and may 2011 bring you an abundance of your own blessings to count.

xo, Alvis (the man perpetually behind the camera and gratefully never in any of the shots!)

Lucie loves Kevin. {Fall E-Session}

We’re not going to bog this blog down with our usual ooey-gooey, lovey-dovey superlatives… But do not mistake our *less is more approach* as disinterest. Au contraire. We are incredibly excited about working with Lucie + Kevin next October, 2011. We’ll be bringing the Bliss *entourage* down to Sault Ste. Marie for the entire weekend! About [...]

We’re not going to bog this blog down with our usual ooey-gooey, lovey-dovey superlatives… But do not mistake our *less is more approach* as disinterest. Au contraire. We are incredibly excited about working with Lucie + Kevin next October, 2011. We’ll be bringing the Bliss *entourage* down to Sault Ste. Marie for the entire weekend!

About six weeks ago amidst a chaotic week of moving from Sioux Lookout to Blind River, Lucie + Kevin came up to TBay to take advantage of some lucious fall colours and the opportunity for a second Bliss photo shoot {we count this one as their actual engagement session, though you may remember their winter *warm-up* session done last year}. They were hoping for some perfect shots for their Save the Dave cards… and something tells me they’ll have a tough time whittling it down to just one! Enjoy your sneak peek, guys. We wish you all the best of this holiday season and thank you for your patience. p.s. give our best to Mika!

xo — Alvis, Sam, + Melissa

The McCullough’s Family Photo Shoot {Kerri-ann. Scott. Ryalie}

Sometimes you get lucky and everything falls into place. Such was the case for the McCullough family photo shoot {beautiful lighting. beautiful people. need we say more?!} Such was also the case for Kerri-Ann + Scott McCullough who celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary this year. To commemorate the day they describe as *blissful* {ooh…we likie!} [...]

Sometimes you get lucky and everything falls into place. Such was the case for the McCullough family photo shoot {beautiful lighting. beautiful people. need we say more?!} Such was also the case for Kerri-Ann + Scott McCullough who celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary this year. To commemorate the day they describe as *blissful* {ooh…we likie!} they opted for a family photo shoot with a twist… the twist being that we’d spend a significant amount of time documenting them as a couple, too.

This happy-go-lucky pair got engaged Christmas Day in 1997. Kerri-Ann describes Scott’s nervous twitches and trembling knees as “so cute” and before she knew it they were planning the wedding of their dreams! The marriage took place at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and thus became a fitting place for us to get warmed up during our shoot. From there we headed over to Victoriaville and took advantage of some wicked lighting in the parcade staircase… I’d always wanted to shoot there and they were totally up for anything. Several goofy shots ensued and I could not help but include them as it illustrates how quirky and fun their relationship with each other is. By contrast, we also took some very poignant images of their sweet little girl, Ryalie. She completely charmed me, that one! Very easy to see why this threesome is a tightly-knit family.

Enjoy your sneak peek, Kerri-Ann! And may the bear hugs, music and dreaming of Ireland continue to inspire you both. Thank you for allowing us this glimpse into your beautiful family! –xo Alvi, Sam + Melissa
