all in a (couple) weeks

I haven't done an update - little of what-I've-been-up-to post in awhile. Below a smattering of my everyday and weekends. marionhousebook-3Don't you love this shapely cutting board? It's made by Trish Papadakos - a pretty phenomenally talented Torontonian. I had the pleasure of shooting in her home the other day for Chatelaine.

marionhousebook-4Speaking of photoshoots for Chatelaine check out the light in this place! I dream of having natural sunlight streaming in like this (not happening in my narrow Victorian). By the way, I'm so excited about this home tour - unbelievable. In the December issue of Chatelaine.

Blog Podium Annawithlove Photography-0005-LI spoke at Blogpodium a couple weekends ago and had an amazing time. What a talented and interesting group of women (l to r - Rhonda Riche, Jacquelyn Clark, Me, Margot Austin, Leigh Anne Allaire Perrault) I got to share the stage with. I wish I could bring them along to every public speaking engagement. They made it so much fun.

There is also a great short video about how he gets the shots including using a remote control helicopter!marionhousebook-2-2After the exhibition we headed down stairs to Sense Appeal coffee. The place is roughly put together but is totally charming in an almost post-apocalyptic way! And the coffee was to die for.

Finally I've been perfecting my ribbons this week. If it's September it must be Christmas time in the magazine world! If you want to learn to make the perfect bow you should check out this post made by the former editor at Chatelaine Virginie Martocq. It worked for me!
