Bridge the Distance with Canon – #CanonL

canon telephotos lens review canada

You know the drill, parents. You have kids and you start capturing every moment, most likely before the baby is even born. Then, with camera in hand, you try desperately to snap each new milestone and every memory made from vacations to birthdays and most importantly - the simple everyday moments that shape our lives. Bridge the Distance with Canon This I know all to well. Stemming from the lack of photos of ... read more

Month In Photos: January 2015

2015_january_month in photos_myorganizedchaos

January 2015 is usually such a long and cold month. This time of year is when I typically take the least photos, uninspired by the drab landscape and bored of the white of the snow. Yet, this January, things were a little different. Someone new to photograph? Someone new to cuddle and love? We got a puppy!! I'd like you to meet Charlie - the new baby in the house. He was born on Nov 1, 2014 and came to live with us ... read more

Month In Photos: December 2014

December 2014 month in photos

December 2014 was a month of mild weather and much time spent outdoors. The highlight of the month was, of course, Christmas. Our holiday captures are of onesie pajamas, homemade knitted touques, visiting Santa, silliness, and sweet treats. Traditions done and memories made. In December 2014 we played in the snow, took a holiday train ride, and toured the ice sculptures. We actually did a lot of festive ... read more

Month In Photos: November 2014

November 2014 month in photos myorganizedchaos

November 2014 was insane, as evidenced by the late posting of this month in photos. It was the month when the snow and ice set in, and a general 'blah' fell on Alberta. You can sure tell by my photos for the month, all the greys and whites - just how happy I am to see winter weather. Yet, the sun rises and we need to make the most, just like the photo I took one morning on the way to school. The sun hitting the frost ... read more

how to create a gallery wall in your home, tips and tricks

For years I have wanted to create a beautiful gallery wall in our living room. I have the perfect wall picked out, and many times I've stared at it and have tried to inspire myself to finally create it.

Creating a gallery wall looks complicated to me. ... read more

Month In Photos: October 2014

October 2014 month in photos my organizedchaos

October 2014 was a typical October for us, filled with last-chance outdoor activities before the chilly weather takes over. This included trips to the corn maze, with school and again with the cheerleading team. Of course, one huge highlight was Halloween, a time to dress up and have fun with good friends. Though, I'm sure the better part of November will be spent trying desperately to stay out of the candy bags. ... read more

Month In Photos: September 2014

September-2014-month-in-photos-myorganizedchaos

September 2014 marked a milestone in my life. For the first time in 10 years, I was to have my days to myself - all 3 of my girls were in all-day school! {insert confetti and party hats here} I do admit to a few moments of panic over where the time has gone and how it truly now feels like I don't have babies anymore. The eyes did tear a couple times, yet for the most part, I'm thrilled. I find I have a tad more ... read more

Month In Photos: August 2014

August-2014-month-in-photos-myorganizedchaos

JULY 2014 has taken me a long time to publish! While this month has been busy and I'm trying to adapt to back to school, I'd rather believe that we are doing some wonderful things as a family lately - and there just isn't enough time. August was one fantastic month though and by looking at our photos, you could say that it was Isabelle's month to shine. You might notice that August 2014 includes a photo of ... read more

With the day and age of digital photos upon us, it's important to remember how to care for your photos. Digital photography is actually just a stage of photography that makes it easier to use and store photos. It is best to get them printed and have your digital records as a back up. There is just something nice about having the real thing to be able to hold in your hands and share with your family and friends. So how do ... read more

The Last Hurrah

IMG_4933

If there's one thing I can say about Summer 2014, is that we truly made the most. Our season was filled with fun activities, events and travel - which is why I can't help but to be blessed yet sad at the same time. Summer was fantastic. These are some of the last shots of our Summer. Sun, grass, smiles and friends. Park, play, ride & camping.        We were right in ... read more

Project Life by Stampin’ Up

project-life-by-stampin-up

Years ago, I used to be a scrapbooking maniac. I was very much into making my own photo pages and albums, each page carefully thought out and planned to perfection. Then, life and kids happened and no longer did I have the copious amounts of time to devote to scrapbooking. Since then, I made the occasional photobook online, my way of scrapbooking with less time and energy involved. The do fill my need for ... read more
