Channel Your Inner Spidey

A wise woman once said, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”

I couldn’t agree more.

You know, there’s something to be said for looking inward and taking happiness and fulfilment into your own hands. For me, it’s my photography; for my lovely friend Andrea at Simply Sweet Cupcakes, it’s creating custom-designed, tiny, baked treats.

For the past few months I’ve been lucky enough to taste-test a new recipe each week. One week it’s chocolate salted caramel, then it’s chocolate chip cannoli,Β then it’s lemon coconut, then it’s chocolate with strawberry buttercream… Is your mouth watering yet?

So, looking to surprise my little man on his 4th birthday (ack! how is that possible?) I knew exactly where to turn. First off, I knew Andrea would put her magical touch on a design sure to impress; and, I gotta admit that I simply don’t have time to make them myself.

Check out these web-spinning spiderman treats:

She even made a bite-sized version for the parentals. (Who is she kidding?! Gimme a BIG one!):

I think spidey himself would be impressed. Don’t you?

let’s do this!

This, my inaugural blog post, is dedicated to my always cheerleading, passionately creative and ever-patient friends who have been listening to me for the past three years say, ‘yeah, I’m working on my new photography website…’ Some of them will recall the drawn-out conversations, the (what I’m sure they thought were) lame excuses and pint-infused brainstorm sessions to find the “perfect” name, when in the end I decided to look to my signature. You know who you are. Cheers to you!

And a super-duper shout out to my awesome clients, past and present. I’m forever grateful to you for letting me into your lives to capture your special moments and milestones.

I clicked the publish button on my new site to have it go live September 13th. Today is a special day.

So, as the blog title reads, it’s time to do this. Time to get serious with this passion I have for picture-taking – if for no other reason than it puts a smile on my face and makes my heart happy. They say that to be truly satisfied in life you should find something you do well and you enjoy so much that you’d do it for free. Well, here goes!

Oh wait. One last thing before I go. I’d be remiss if I failed to mention my brilliant friend, Heather, who is a sheer genius with words and managed to describe what I do far better than I could have done myself. *hugs*

Here’s to what comes next!
