Paper Source | Fastest Service and Shipping, EVER!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011


Waaahooooooo!  I couldn't believe it when I left the house tonight only to discover this box at the front door!  I placed my order on Friday and cannot believe my package arrived today!  Not only am I completely thrilled with how quickly I received everything, but I'm in love with everything I ordered!


I can't wait to use Paper Source again!  Thanks guys!

Simple, New Packaging | Kitchener Waterloo Portraiture Photographer


I've been mulling over Novella's packaging for awhile and believe I've found the perfect packaging-match, at least for my lovely portraiture clients!  Now, although I really don't like to scrapbook, I LOVE scrapbooking paper!  The above DVD *casing* was made with a sturdy sheet of orange scrapbooking paper and embellished with a roped flower (all found at Michaels).  I think it's a perfect pairing of professional-quality packaging with an eclectic hand-made touch - a fitting compliment to Novella Photography!



This little DVD bundle is heading over to Missy M's momma on Friday!

The Reveal | Galt Country Club | Kitchener/Waterloo Wedding Photographer

Tuesday, August 30, 2011


I love it when one of my Couples decides to make time for a *reveal* (which usually only happens if pictures are taken before the ceremony).  After getting ready and driving over to the Galt Country Club for pictures, Kasey decided to surprise Stewart in the rotunda before heading out onto the course.  The spot was a perfect choice for a reveal, with Kasey sweeping down the stairs in full bridal bloom towards Stewart waiting with his back to her at the bottom.

The Dress, Oh the Gorgeous Dress | Kitchener/Waterloo Wedding Photographer


As promised (and with very much pleasure), here is the first of several wedding teasers from last night's festivities with Kasey and Stewart!








More to come!

Kasey and Stewart Initial Teaser | Kitchener/Waterloo Wedding Photographer

I've been going through their images for most of the morning and thought I would plunk this one out of the bunch and create a swift post!  There are SOOOO many great images guys!  I really need to buckle down and focus on which ones to post and wanted to make sure you had a small teaser while I make you wait till tonight or tomorrow's full teaser post ;).  There are just tonnes of great images from every element of your day (whether it's your Divas getting ready, half naked groomsmen, your tearjerker of a ceremony, or country club, Mill Race Park, and reception photos).  I'm so excited for you two and cannot wait to show you how I saw your day!

I will keep you posted and, like I mentioned, send you an email/text when more images are up!

New Packaging from Paper Source!!!

Oh Paper Source, where have you been all my life?!  

I am sooooooo excited to be adding some new packaging to the lovely and sweet people I'm so lucky to work for!  First of all, I LOVE boxes!  I'm a sucker for them and as soon as I found these on Paper Source I fell in luuurrrve!  This beautiful blue (named Bluebell) was my favourite shade but I very easily could have ordered one in every colour offered!
I also fell completely in love with their mailing labels (which I plan on using more as thank you labels).
I finally decided to revamp my paper bag technique!  Don't get me wrong at all, I absolutely love the simplicity and organic feel of a recycled, brown gift bag BUT as soon as I saw Paper Source's Kraft Flourish bags (pictured above) I decided I could easily justify (for only an extra $3.90) a medium bag which, it turns out, is going to be the absolute perfect fit for my little bluebell box!

I've been able to keep everything quite simple and have added these few extra touches to really make your packaging pop (not to mention the added excitement of piecing it all together).

Heidi and Jeff, this collection is coming to you next so keep your eyes on the mailbox!

M and the New Dress | Kitchener/Waterloo Children's Photographer

Friday, August 26, 2011

Little M recently received a special new dress from her Grandmother and it came all the way from Japan!  Such a special dress needed it's own blog post!
A few quick pearls turned M's dress from fab to FABOOSH!  Mom helped coordinate colours :).




More from Missy M | Kitchener/Waterloo Children's Photographer


I had an amazing weekend session with little Missy M and Mom and Dad (Mom was the recipient of Novella Photography's "Match the Baby to the Belly" Contest back in the Spring).  All I can say is "cutest baby EVER!"  M was such a delight to shoot and we had a lovely time in the park while she explored.  Below are a few images from our morning.
Cou-Cou!










 What M was really saying here was "ahhhh!"  What I picture her saying - in a valley-girl voice - is "Shut. Up."
Most adorable smirk ever :).

Session shot with Canon 7D and 50mm and 70-200 L series lenses.
