Adoption: something to really consider

We were hired to visit these 4 families and capture their adoption stories of the children with special placement needs. This is a short on their combined stories. Our client, Bethany Christian Services is seeking families for 400 children waiting for their forever family. These children come from different countries, speak different languages, have different needs and different stories, yet they have one thing in common...the desire to be a part of a loving family! Visit them at to learn more.

Sony Diaries #838: shades of blue

It took me awhile to realize that blues dominated the palatte of the very tiny patch of greenery at the front.

Sony Diaries #822: the trouble with us

This is a totally unnecessary import into Canada from drought-stricken California. Also from Cali sold alongside: strawberries, raspberries, etc, all of it still in season in southwestern Ontario. And the transport cost, yechh. July 16th.

Sony Diaries #812: wunderkind camera for portraits

Traditionally, when shooting portraits, I would haul out my full-frame Sony a99 with a Tamron 70-200f2.8. Well, not anymore!! The Sony RX10 with its built-in 24-200f2.8 lens, powered by a tiny 1" sensor, does the job just as well, at a fraction of the size and weight of the a99.
