Okay so I'm just figuring out how to set up this blog page. I figure out something new everyday.
I just created a new page dedicated to weddings. I only have a few pics up so far but it's coming along. The first few pics are of a wedding i photographed in Sept. 09 It was lots of fun and I'm so happy I was able to photograph it for them. Hope you enjoy.

I can't even believe it has been a full year since I became the proudest auntie. What a huge joy the little monkey brings to so many lives. I was so happy to be at his first birthday where he was surrounded by friends and family.
It was a year ago on march 8th that this little man came into the world. I'll never forget that day because sadly i missed it...
It was march 5th and Stacey started feeling some contractions. This made me pretty happy because I was to catch a flight to Mexico for a month long practicum the next day. So I thought Ok I will focus all my energy on Stacey and hope and pray this baby comes out before I leave, PLEASE com out! I went up to Kelowna that night and stayed on a blowup mattress with my then fiance in my brother's unfinished freezing cold basement...I was not going to miss this birth. Or so I thought. The next day I left for mexico and still no baby. I stayed as long as I possibly could, but had to go. I'll never forget that day. Leaving my fiance for a month and leaving while my family was about to meet the first of the next generation. Tears rolled down my face as we pulled out of the driveway.
As soon as I arrived in Mexico I called home, I was sure I had probably just missed the birth grrr. But still no baby. I called the night of the 7th... still no baby. Finally on March 8th I called home again...Baby Boy!!! I cried. so happy and proud of my brother and his wife, so happy I was an aunt, excited my parents were now grandparents...but miserable that I wasn't there. Though this little man took his time coming into this world I was happy I missed it by a few days instead of a few hours. haha sorry Stacey.
Anyway Happy Birthday Little L. You have made the past year so wonderful for so many.
xoxo Auntie Kailey
Oh and good job Stacey on a successful 1st B-DAY party!!!

Well I'm finally finding some time to edit and post some of my photos. Yeah!
These were taken at the lovely PlayLand in Vancouver, bc while my friends were riding the crazy rides that my sensitive tummy just couldn't handle. I love the way they turned out especially because this was the ride I spent hours on as a kid.

Should I start a blog…Should I not start a blog
Okay so this is all very new to me and I must say not really that simple. I thought maybe I would start a blog as a way to create my first web site. You see, I am a stuggling photographer. By stuggling I mean just starting to get payed for the jobs that I do. Only now am I starting to find the time to dedicate myself to this great passion of mine. I am continuously learning new things and am starting to become proud of the work that I do. I wish I had a mentor, someone to teach me all the great things to know about photography…but I don’t. I learn from trial and error and learn something new everyday. I am surrounded by lovely people in my life that let me photograph them to develop my skill. SO here are a few things about myself.
I have a passion for art and creativity.
I love anything vintage/cottage-chic (does that make sense?).
I am married to a wonderful man who loves me and all of my faults (trust me there are many).
I live in Penticton with my husband and extraordinarily beautiful cat Yoda (BTW i did not name my cat, i rescued her from the SPCA. She was shy and lonely at the ripe old age of 7 and insisted on keeping her name).
I currently finished a degree in Elementary Education and hope to be employed by the school district very soon.
I also have a degree in Fine Arts from UBC-O
I love to travel to exotic places to learn new things and see all the wonders and beauty of the world.
ANYHOW…i guess the point of this blog is to let anyone who wants to know about me see what i am doing and see how i am pushing forward to evolve as a photographer. I have images in my mind that i need to bring to life. Photography is one of my passions and serves as a way for me to be creative. I have an undying desire to create.
I hope now I can create something to be proud and passionate about.
