I can't even begin to describe how much I love this image. 
I was so skeptical to shoot on that bridge but am I ever glad we went there. It was quite busy, so we had to wait for the right moment to get the shot. But it was so worth it.

My drink has a pretty colour so that means it must be instagram worthy. Also, it’s delicious 😋 and keeps my cool on this hot, sunny summer day.
Btw. totally false advertising bc there is exactly 0% pineapple 🍍 in my cup - just 🍓 + 🥥 milk + stevia + swerve + vanilla extract
This s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g young lady had prom last night, so we took some photos <3 <3 <3

Well, don't these treats look mouth-watering? I wish everything that looked tasty was, in fact, tasty. I quit sugar recently, but I have a huge sweet tooth, so I wanted to make some sugar-free treats. This afternoon I was trying to sweeten these copycat Bounty Bars with stevia... I googled and googled and finally arrived at the conclusion to use Stevia "to taste". The middle is ok, with some faint coconut flavour. But the chocolate coating... Well, let me just say, the result of my hard work is inedible. Stevia = bitterness in a bottle. On to some therapeutic editing of some blossomy spring photos now... Oh and if any of you reading this are seasoned pros at using stevia, please let me know how to get rid of the bitter aftertaste, I'm all ears. My sweet tooth will thank you ❤️
We were in the car, driving home from Aaron's papa's 90th birthday celebration when Aaron spotted movement in the bush beside the road. Sure enough, there was not one, but two foxes playing hide-and-seek. Or catch-a-mouse. Or whatever it is that foxes play. 
My camera was in my lap, but I was kicking myself for having brought the wrong lens. Knowing how far the bush was from the road, I didn't even want to bother taking a picture. I mean, what's the point of a photo when you know that the fox will be reduced to a tiny reddish speck? "Come on, take the picture!", Aaron urged me and turned the car around. By now I had expected the foxes to have disappeared. But they kept on playing. And then they proceeded to staring curiously at our vehicle. There was a chance for getting a shot. Not a good one, but a chance. So I got out of the car, stepped into the muddy field (in my good shoes!) and clicked away. This was too much for one fox, and he ran of. But here are a few photos of the braver one. To give you an idea of the distances, I added the cell phone picture Aaron took of me taking a photo of the fox. 
Moral of the story: My camera (and telephoto lens) should be with me ALWAYS. It has happened far too often that I missed a wildlife shot because I didn't expect to see anything and didn't bring my camera. Please tell me I'm not the only one this happens to all the time? Tell me about a time when you wished you had brought your camera!!

Earlier this year, I participated in the Shoot & Share photography contest - a first for me. Over 400,000 photos from photographers all over the world were submitted. 
The experience was both nerve-wracking and inspiring. It was nerve-wracking because my photos are very dear to my heart and having them voted on was definitely out of my comfort zone. But I was curious to see how they would fare.
Participating in the contest was inspiring because voting on images of other artists opened my eyes to new possibilities and pushed me to become a better artist myself. I can already see such a big difference in my photos pre-and post contest. I'm really happy.
The Shoot and Share team made this little video of all of the photos that I entered - thank you to all my amazing clients who let me enter their gorgeous images!! 👉🏻 And also, check back here to see how I did in the contest!! I will post the photos that made it into the top 30% category on Monday - so stay tuned 😊
