Today for educational purposes (for clients, other photographers, friends, family, whoever is interested) I thought I'd share what my weekends look like...because I think they look quite different from people I know who have what I like to call "a proper job." This first photo (on the left) was taken yesterday (Saturday) when I was about to leave to go shoot a wedding. Please note the bottle of water (futile attempt to hydrate) and the bottle of Advil (an absolute necessity). Now I love my job as much as anyone, and I feel incredibly lucky to do what I do. However, I feel that now and then it's good to hang it out there into the public just how hard it really is...since every time I see an article or a tv piece about how anyone can be a wedding photographer, I get just a little bit hot under the collar.

Well the countdown has begun. In a little less than 2 weeks I will be heading back to Port Au Prince for my 2nd excursion to Haiti since January's devastating earthquake. I was fortunate enough to be invited to go on a medical relief trip with an organization called New Reality International and I am thrilled to be going back with them again. I will be traveling with a small group of doctors, nurses and other relief workers to help provide medical care which is so desperately needed by the people of Haiti...and has been for many years now. The last time I went to Haiti, I was very fortunate to receive donations from family and friends to help foot the rather hefty costs of getting there (and back). Thank you so much to all of you who donated and/ or sent me your well-wishes. This time around, I am footing

Many of you know already that last month I traveled to Haiti with an organization called NRI, New Reality International. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life and although I've had about 5 weeks to process everything emotionally, even now I can barely describe the amazing friendships I made, with both the North American medical team I traveled with as well as our Haitian translators. I will share my images and some stories here on the blog over the next few weeks but in the meantime I wanted to share this little video/ photo slideshow I worked on over the weekend. I hope you enjoy. If you'd like to do something to help the people of Haiti who still desperately need the help, please visit www.newrealityinternational.org to donate money, tents, medical supplies or to find out what other ways you might be able to contribute.

Alright I've been reading Q&A's from a bunch of my Twitter friends over the past week so I've decided to jump on the Ask Me Anything bandwagon. So feel free to go for it. See that little box in the sidebar on the left side of the screen? Go ahead and ask me stuff...it can be anything really and I will answer. Try to ask questions that I can answer in a sentence or two though. This is for fun, not an online workshop. :)

Happy Holidays to me! It's been a long time since I've had a decent point-and-shoot camera...I mean a loooong time. I do have a half-broken 3 MP digital elph lying around somewhere but the image quality was always so lousy that I couldn't even bare to have anything printed...and isn't it sad to not have any pictures of the fun things you do in your life? And since I'm not one of those photographers who likes to lug around a big SLR & lenses everywhere I go, I decided it was finally time to get myself a new point-and-shoot. So as a holiday gift to me, I got myself a Canon G-10 from Samy's...who definitely had the best deal around on this baby. Did you know that if you order online from Samy's, everything is about 10% cheaper than in the store. Good to know, right? So now I have a
