Kids and babies can present the greatest challenge to photographers. I usually welcome the challenge but I must say, it is a nice treat every once in awhile to photograph a baby or young child who doesn’t make you work quite as hard for a great image. Evelyn was one of those ideal subjects who took little coaxing smile right into the camera but who could also tune out my continuous shooting to enjoy some beautifully intimate moments with her mommy.
My husband, Ian ran the half marathon at the Bluenose this passed weekend (and came in 19th over all at 1:25:42 I might add!). I went along to cheer him on and of course, take pictures. It was a gorgeous day, which brought out lots of people to support the thousands of participants. Congrats to all who took part!
1. Eat at a Five Napkin Burger. There are several locations; Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown, Union Square and the Upper West Side. They have delicious burgers, a super chic atmosphere and oddly enough, scrumptious sushi.
2. Visit the New York Public Library.
3. Ride the Subway. It’s a great way to get around.
4. Walk the Highline Trail.
5. Visit Central Park.
6. Visit Dumbo, Brooklyn.
7. Experience the Manhattan city line and bridges at night.
In honour of Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought I would dedicate this post to my mom. A couple of years ago, we took a little day trip to Peggy’s Cove. My mom has lived in Nova Scotia all her life but had never been before. It was a wonderful day and a memory I will cherish forever.
Sometimes we find comfort in the most unlikely of places…
Here are some pics from a shoot I did with Jim for the artwork on his album “Same Old Feeling” that is now available. You can sample it for free on his website, JimHenman.com as well as purchase and download the mp3 files or order a CD. Check it out – You won’t be disappointed!
