*Taking the scenic route...| Lethbridge Photographer

Here are a few facts about my life:

Fact. I live in Southern Alberta.(Canada)
Fact. Winter lasts way way way too long here.
Fact. Just when you think it is spring, it is winter again.
Fact. It is not very easy to find little children or families who want to brave the
wind and snow for photo shoots.
Fact. Even though it was freezing cold, windy and ridiculously snowy I could not
ignore the call of my camera, or the creativity bubbling up inside of me.
Fact. I learned to walk with my eyes open, to really see the world around me.
Fact. I fell in love with early Saturday morning adventures..just me and my d300.
Fact. The sweet melodic click of my shutter can calm all of my internal storms.
Fact. Everything is alive, and Life is beautiful.
Fact. This long long long winter changed the way I look at my surroundings.
Fact. Spring will eventually emerge and I will "shoot" people again.

until then..try taking the scenic route once in a while, you never know what beautiful adventures you may encounter..

I so love these! You are such a creative photographer and with your photographs you teach me to just take a moment and relax... look at the beauty surrounding us that we cannot always see in our busy lives.
