more from Pasley Island...

Well I’ve already posted about the gorgeous island and how much I miss it. Still do. Now I’ll share some shots of what brought me there. JinkyArt is a name synonymous with creativity, flair and pure genius when it comes to child photography. Barb Uil, the face behind Jinky, was one of the first photographers I admired just starting out and my admiration hasn’t weaned. That said, it was a thrill to meet Barb who travelled all the way from Australia to give us a peek inside her brilliance. Barb, you truly are amazing and I thank you for your openess and willingness to share. You made a fabulous weekend even more fabulous and I thank you.

Here’s just a peek into how we filled our days…



from top row: wee babe on a beach, same babe attacked by the workshop paparazzi; full day of rain followed by a magnificent double rainbow – it’s real!; a few candids of our host’s boys who reminded me of my own; our gorgeous host Rebecca and her adorable family; more Rebecca and family; Barb and our little ‘fairy’ model; she was so perfect and can you believe that mossy forest?

Way back in December... | Woodstock, Ontario family photographer

…I did a little open your heart and I’ll open mine offer where I asked people to nominate someone they thought deserved a photo shoot. Everyone knows someone. I received a lot of nominations and believe me, choosing just one was one of the toughest things I’ve had to do but I did it and it wasn’t until this past weekend that I finally got to meet the winner and her family.

It was a hot evening (no surprise there) and this wee girl, just 10 months old, definitely kept us on our toes.






Dear Pasley Island... | part I

I miss you bunches. Your gorgeous rugged shore, the moss you wore so brilliantly, the deer that stood and listened in on our conversations, the inspiring women that came and met on your land. I miss you. The late nights wrapped in blankets sipping wine and chatting, our amazing host (who I envy so), the trees, the water, the mountains in the distance, the rainbows, the whiskey sours, the delicious food, even the rain and fog. I miss you.
